Ranbir Kapoor is currently basking in the glory of Sanju. The movie is unstoppable at the box office and has minted a whopping sum of Rs 250 crores within just 5 days of its release.
Ranbir Kapoor is always compared to Ranveer Singh. Ranbir was pitched the often-asked question yet again and he admitted that being compared to Ranveer pushes him to do better.
In an interview with PTI, Ranbir said, “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.”
Talking about the earnings their films their films do at the box office, Ranbir 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.”
Ranbir also said that both Ranveer and he have received offers to team up for a film but a film with Ranveer has not materialised so far. He 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.”
After Ae Dil Hai Mushkil released, Ranbir confessed to being an admirer of Ranveer on Karan’s show and said: “It makes me happy that somebody is out there and is doing this level of work. And it’s unlimited. I’m scared that this guy has no limit. He can go anywhere.”
Meanwhile, Ranveer was asked about being compared to Ranbir, and his response was simple: “Do I need to match up? Can the two of us just do good films? Take the industry forward. Do stellar work. Put us on the world map. Our films should be world class. He has it in him. Not just as an actor, as a director, as a filmmaker.”
We can’t wait to see them on the screen together!
