Ranveer Singh, on a high after recording his biggest hit with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat, says box office numbers are a validation for him as an entertainer.
"It feels amazing. As an entertainer, box office numbers are a validation that I am being able to entertain audiences and to me that's everything," Singh said in a statement.
Padmaavat has earned the actor commercial and critical acclaim for his portrayal of Delhi sultan Alauddin Khilji. The movie, that released on 25 January, has minted about Rs184.50 crores until 3 February.
