Moments to Cherish
Ranveer Singh stole the thunder on day one. The actor, who attended the SIIMA Awards 2022 on Saturday, absolutely owned the stage. He enacted a line from Pushpa by Allu Arjun. He even replicated the movie’s iconic gesture. The actor then performed a dance routine while reinterpreting the hit song Srivalli. The actor also hilariously took off his shoe while doing the hook dance from the Srivalli song. Fans and famous people were surely amazed by Ranveer’s moves!
At the awards ceremony, Yash also expressed his happiness about the awards show being presented in Bangalore.
The Best Actor in a Leading Role (Kannada) trophy from SIIMA 2022 was given to the late Puneeth Rajkumar for his performance in Yuvarathnaa. The Yuvarathnaa team as a whole enthusiastically embraced the honor. SIIMA sent out a tweet to its followers showing the team’s cast collecting the honor. The caption of the post reads, “When Late Puneeth Rajkumar ascended to heaven, the Kannada film industry lost one of its most valuable stars. SIIMA is humbled to present him with the Best Actor in a Leading Role (Kannada) for the movie Yuvarathnaa. We thank the Yuvarathnaa team for accepting it on his behalf”.
