BL Anniversary Special: Is Ranveer Singh a better actor than Ranbir Kapoor?

BollywoodLife readers seem to think so…

Competition is hotting up for heartthrob Ranbir Kapoor, with his Bandra bestie Ranveer Singh threatening to overtake him in terms of popularity. Reading from the comments posted by Bollywoodlife readers on this article, we thought viewers are watching the two stars pretty closely and know who is capable of doing what on celluloid. And they think Ranveer is a better choice to play Kareena Kapoor’s brother in Zoya Akhtar’s film than her real-life cousin Ranbir.

Reader maihra commented, “ranvver singh is much better actor than over rated ranbir kaoor any ways and karrena kapoor is 5 years older than ranveer its betteer to play a brother rather than lover boys ranvver will be pair opossite katrina kaif in the film and kareena with hritik i love the star cast”.

Do you agree? Rofl feels Ranveer has got the charisma that Ranbir lacks. “Ranbir better than ranveer?Lol ranveer just got the charisma that ranbir doesn’t and ranbir is way over rated anyway, it wouldn’t be a suprise after few years ranveer will go ahead in terms of fan base.”

Who do you think is a better actor – Ranveer Singh or Ranbir Kapoor?

    100 % yes ranveer singh is charming and energetic and super talented . ranbir is good but not as talented as ranveer .

  • Aditi

    Ranbir Kapoor is 110% better actor and person than monkey Ranveer Singh. Everybody knows it, no doubt about it. Ranveer is such an ugly monkey, Ranbir is a charming handsome gentleman. Ranbir is very talented, that’s why he is where he is now, and will soar higher. Ranveer cannot reach that height ever.

    • Lootera

      @aditi:Well,you said he will soar higher,hope it will not turn out to be a disappointment for him where he is afraid of that height.Ranveer don”t need to reach that height.Coz,he will always look up with pride and Ranbir will always look down from that height where he is now today.

    • shakil

      There will be a time when Ranbir Kapoor will have no choice but hold Ranveer”s hand.And out of your 110%,this extra 10% is going to cause a lot of trouble for this Kapoor kid. When it comes to height of success,don”t forget,what goes up,comes down.Mind it.

    • meghani

      I dont want to insult any actor.. But i also personally dont like the way ranveer is behaving.. Ranbir is 100 times better

      • bread pakoda

        Ranveer is uncomparable.He is unique and versatile.His style,his acting,his smile,his presence everything.He is always smiley where Ranbir looks doofus with dead expression.You can”t compare him with Ranveer.

      • jignesh

        @meghani:You don”t like the way he is behaving.Than you are 100% obsessed with ranveer.

  • sakina srk

    Ranbir is having acting skills in his genetics. But ranveer singh is best actor in his category today. He is talented hardworking goodlooking and has immensely happy vibe. He is more humble and down to earth as normal people and therefore he will connect with audience and in long run he will take over all fan bases inshallah and awards as well

  • Deba Mondal

    Ranveer is style icon. He has a perfect sexy figure and also is a very good dancer.He has no goodfather in the industry . Today where ranveer is standing it is his own talent. But ranbir has a platfrorm which he dont made.

  • nav

    Ranveer singh the bloody fu..r nothing more than donkey.

  • priya

    oh yes 1 ranveer singh is much better actor than ranbir he will win all the awards for lootera this year . becuz his one of the origional actor of young generation his self made guy,and ranbir huh ! making cartoon and goofy faces and copies actor like carle chaplen in barfi and win all the awards ilke nonsence . such a over rated guy just becouz of kapoor sir name .

  • Sadia

    Ranbir kapoor is the best actor till date… The acting comes jus naturally… Ranveer is jus ok ok….

  • rhea

    Both are good actors. Both has a lot to prove. Ranbir’s acting in Barfi! was amazing. I believe that Ranveer’s Loothera will be a great movie for him. Anyone who says Katrina is a good actress, I can say that they’re judgement in Bollywood is bad! I believe her performance nowadays is bad. She’s just good for modelling not acting.

  • RanveersinghFC

    @Sadia: Being a star kid doesn”t make you a star or best actor.Ranveer singh is a self made man.Hard working,talented,entertaining and full of life,Where at the same time Ranbir”s daddy negotiates his son”s salary on his behalf.Such a shame.

  • Napotism at its best

    just compromise “the kapoor sir name”,sab kuch apne aap utar jayega.With out Daddy Rishi and Karan,Ranbir is nothing but a bike without a seat.

  • kk

    Rabir kapoor “The Condom boy” in real life and
    Ranveer singh “The Gujrati boy” in reel life (ram leela).

  • chikan

    Ranveer singh is truly the next big thing.Mock my words.Lootera will create history,so will RamLeela.

    • neelam

      100 % agree lootera will create history , ranbir kapoor fans just wait and watch

  • meghani

    give some time for ranveer to prov himself first..what has he done upto now…? Ranbir has again n again proved that he is the best among new generation…Dont compare these two..

    • bl

      @Sarah: You are half right.The media just loves to put people down who are out siders.In this case Ranveer.So much fabricated stories about him.Not a single truth behind them.Ranveer handled all these very well.He doesn”t do PR stuff.So no one to support him.But when its comes to Ranbir,Daddy Rishi Kappor is always there to defend his innocent child who loves condom.

  • Sarah

    in terms of work the only roles we have seen Ranveer in was Band Baaja which was good,and Ladies Vs Ricky which was not as good, and that’s basically all we have seen of him, so I would say he has a lot to prove if you want to say that he is a better actor than Ranbir. I don’t understand how all of you are saying he is far more talented than Ranbir when he has has only released 2 movies so far. Ranbir has proven himself as a good actor to everyone in recent years with Rockstar and Barfi, and all his other 9 release. Now that he is so popular and winning all of the best actor awards people want to put him down again. The media just loves to to that to people in this industry, and the fans of certain actors are just nasty to each other, it’s all quit sad.

  • aryan

    Ranveer is million times better than overrated Ranbir.Case closed.

  • iqbal hamid

    Ranbir Kapoor can achieve everything,but Ranveer singh can achieve everything you can imagine.

  • jignesh

    After rockstar ranbir became completely overrated where the credit should go to Mr.AR Rehman.Ranbir should stop overacting.In barfi it was over the top and semmed attempted.Not natural acting at all.This over the top acting may landed him to win awards this year but its not gonna happen every year.At least next year.

  • srk fan

    Ranveer is a good actor and an entertainer.I will call him best after Lootera releases.

  • Vivek

    Definitely Rambir Kapoor is a much much better actor than that monkey self obsessed Ranvir Singh. Ranbir Kapoor has won 4 film fare awards and miles ahead he has proven himself again and again in different types of roles while singh is just 2 movies old both same type of roles.

  • kiran

    okay ! both cannot be compare ,ranbir kapoor is ranveer singh senior , both are good actors but ranveer singh is much more talented just wait for lootera and ram leela and gunday , he will be on top as ranbir kapoor is today , every one has there own fan following anyways .

  • gippi

    Dilip Kumar–Amitabh Bachchan—Shahrukh Khan–Ranveer Singh

  • Ali

    Ranbir is the best the industry has produced in a long time. Ranveer doesn’t have the looks or the acting ability. I bet no one could a do a Rockstar or a Barfi better than Ranbir. Plus which *@#$!^ said Ranveer has more charisma than Ranbir! Bullshit…

  • Nalini kukreti

    Somebody calling ranbir kapor an overrated actor,is a sheer case of ‘angoor khattey hain’. Ranbir kapoor is the only(of the current time )actor that has never been repetitive in terms of the characters he’s played.. From bachna ae haseeno to rocket singh from rajneeti to rockstar.. From barfi to yeh jawani hai deewani.. And how can u forget Wake up sid… He’s given us variety good performances and has certainly brought smiles on our faces… I cant even think of comparing some stupid ‘bitto singh’ to my adorable ‘murphy’…

  • tia

    ranveer even does his pr through Ranbir. if u google Ranbir then u can get the ranbir singh option. though his name has V not b. only some frustrated people who cant take the succes of Ranbir try to compare him with any random actor.

  • nina

    Even media also get jealous on Ranbir’s success. May be he doesn’t paid then like ranveer. Ranbir is the new king. raanveer lives on Ranbir’s name.

  • bittoo sharma

    Ranveer Singh is 200 times better than ranbir kapoor, d monkey kid… Ranveer rocks, other actor flops….

  • Salman

    After sometime ranbeer definitely become biggest superstar & people dont know who ranveer was

  • NG

    Totally agree. Ranveer is a much better actor and Ranbir kapoor is expressionless, dances mediocre, pathetic physique (after Mr bachan) and totally overrated. Personally, I can’t stand this chocolate boy even In some good entertaining movies.

  • Sunny

    Ranveer is far better than Ranbir. There is no doubt about it.

  • raghu

    there were so many comments supporting ranbir and everything is removed. anyway.. are u guys dumb. see barfi, rockstar, ajab prem, rocket singh.. ask any director or actor, the range of emotions displayed by ranbir and how different these roles were from one another.. now see ranvir(except for lootera) in all his movies .. there i no difference in acting. How the hell is he even anywhere near..

    • kapil kumar

      There is no doubt that Ranbir kappor is next superstar as acting is in his blood but its also very true that Ranveer Sing is also very talented. Ranvir kapoor is perfect for romantic magic but still we are waiting for an action actor a versatile like Hrithik. Other hand Ranveer Sing….is as Good in action avtaar or serious role but still he has or need some make over about romance like a Super Star SRK. So its very early to say that who is best but at present Ranbir Kapoor is bit ahead then Ranveer singh but I cant forget Ramleela also…so we should wait for some more years.

      • raghu

        kapil, there is a difference between saying Ranvir is talented and saying Ranvir is better than Ranbir. Ranvir simply hasnt done difficult roles(Lootera was an off beat film but honestly didnt require emoting on different planes(it ranged from silent, smug, to desperate and aggressive). maybe the role was written that way but let Ranvir take up a difficult role which requires the full gamut of emotions to be displayed,. I have analysed what I felt is the difference and put it in my comment above. But saying one is talented and to say he is better than some one is totally different. Ranvie is a confident actor but he is NOT better than Ranbir( atleast if that helps you, he hasnt proved it yet)

  • intellect

    Ranbir is way ahead of Ranveer who is just overrated.

  • minn

    but most overrated are shahid kapoor and asin both look horrible

  • raghu

    didnt want to bring in comparisons here but this shit article which is so biased made me comment. people generally get carried away about an actors ability by the hits he gives or quite simply if they are his fans. Even at that levbel Ranvir still guarantee the initials Ranbir can. His highest being 16 cr for Gunday. Ranbirs worst movie Besharam got more initial than that. For many Arjun kapoor became a good actor(and great for some) after 2 states, ranveer singh for some is already one of the finest(agree he is good but i would rate him as a supremely confident actor more than a fine actor).. but there is a difference between being a confident and decent actor and a great actor. A lot of confidence is shown when a person is ..1 given dialogues and 2 a single scene doesnt involve variations between diametrically opposite emotions.. all of the actors, from ranveer to arjun to varun are decent actors as long as they are given to mouth dialogues and the scene doesnt require difficult emotions(atleast they havent done roles like that). Ranbir creates the gap exactly here. Though Ranbir was appreciated a lot for Rockstar, I still felt while the emoting was good, he should have toned down the aggression a bit in some scenec. for me it wasnt the perfect portrayal. But when he did a barfi, there was no scope of covering any lapses in emoting by dialogue delivery and if u have done theatre, you will know what i mean. This is where he got the opportunity to show the kind of actor he is. one scene where he takes his marriage proposal to illeanas house, the emotions ranged from happiness, being expectant, uncertainty, frustration, anger, dissapointment and back to sanity.. all of these emotions conveyed without a single dialogue. the day any of these new actors whether varun or ranveer or arjun are able to convey a scene like that convincingly, they can compare themselves to Ranbir, until then Ranbir is the better actor.(mind you even aamir khan wasnt taking roles like this 5 years into the industry and he too was from a film family). It normally hurts people if we point at the senior actors but I really would like a ajay devgn, akshay kumar or even a salman khan to do a role without dialogues
