Here’s what Ranbir Kapoor said on the constant comparisons between him and Ranveer
Ranbir Kapoor made his silver screen debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Saawariya’ in 2007, whereas Ranveer Singh entered Bollywood in 2010 with ‘Band Baaja Baaraat‘ . Interestingly the two talented actors have always been pitted against each other. Recently even filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra revealed that initially, he wanted to cast Ranveer Singh as Sanjay Dutt in ‘Sanju’ and not Ranbir Kapoor.
Also, the fact that both Ranbir and Ranveer have dated Deepika Padukone (Ranveer is still dating her) at some point, makes them subject to several comparisons on and off. Recently when asked about how does he feel about constantly being compared to Ranveer, Ranbir told PTI, “I’ve seen Ranveer in ‘Padmaavat‘ and I was really bowled over by his performance. I thought he was phenomenal. I’ve now been pitted against Ranveer as ‘competition’. It’s amazing to have that. It only pushes us to do better work.”
The ‘Rockstar‘ actor further added, “He (Ranveer) inspires and excites me. There are times his films do better business than mine and hopefully, there will be a time when my films will be doing better business. It will be an interesting pattern.”

Interestingly in the past both Ranbir and Ranveer have been offered projects to star together, however, they have never featured in any film so far. Revealing the reasons why he turned down these offers, Ranbir said, “We are two actors who have their own sensibilities. We can’t come together just as a project. It has to be liked by both of us, individually. I am really looking forward to working with him and also Varun and Tiger. When you do a two-hero film, you share the burden. It’s also easier because you have a partner-in-crime and you can have a lot of fun on sets too.”
Well, wouldn’t it be exciting to see these two actors work together in a film? Also, we would love to see a project starring the young brigade- Varun, Tiger and Ranbir together in it.
