Ranbir Kapoor has been making the headlines because of his wonderful acting in Sanju and the immense appreciation that it has received. People have been appreciating him for seamlessly taking on the persona of Sanjay Dutt. Surprisingly, Ranveer Singh was the first preference for this role. On talking about comparison and competition with Ranveer Singh, 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."
"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," he adds.
He told PTI that they had been offered roles for being co-stars. "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," he says.
