No matter how many movies released this year, the first half was owned by Ranveer Singh for his exceptional portrayal of mad king Alauddin Khilji, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s magnum opus ‘Padmaavat’. And if the wedding rumours are anything to go by, then the second half of the year too will be pretty much owned by him. Although the movie received mixed reactions, Bollywood lovers stood unanimously in favour of this being Ranveer’s best performance so far.

But, after the release of the jaw-dropping trailer of ‘Sanju’, things changed and so did people’s interest. What was meant to be a movie that will take us through the life of Sanjay Dutt has now become a movie about “Who did it better: Sanjay Dutt or Ranbir Kapoor?” And for this, the entire credit goes to Ranbir Kapoor for looking so convincing.
Now while the two actors are doing great in their own respective acting careers and possibly two of the best actors in Bollywood right now, they have never come together in any movie. Call it lack of an interesting script for them, their personal equations (in the past) or just the fact that the directors never thought of it; but there’s no denying that we all have been secretly wishing for the two to come together in a movie.

And we guess we are not the only ones wishing for it, Ranbir Kapoor too thinks on the similar lines. Reportedly, in a recent conversation with Rajeev Masand, the actor said that he is a big fan of Ranveer and wants to work with him in a movie that’s similar to ‘Karan Arjun’ or ‘Andaz Apna Apna’. He said, “To cast two actors who have their own sensibilities is very hard because both have to like the material, it can’t just be another project. But I really want to work with him also because I am a big fan of his work. I thought he was spectacular in Padmaavat and every other thing that he has done.”
He also spoke about Ranveer’s acting prowess and his energy. “Every advertisement he does, he stands out, his energy stands out…his talent speaks so much. So, I want to do a film with him but it has to be the right film. It could be like a ‘Karan Arjun’ or a ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ or a ‘Deewar’, it could be any genre but it has to be something that both od us connect to and like,” he said.
To all the directors – Guys, are you listening? Now that even Ranbir wants to do a movie, can we please get one soon.
