Ranveer Singh made his dream debut under the Yash Raj Films banner with the blockbuster Band Baaja Baaraat. However, he wasn’t the first choice for the movie. The script was earlier proposed to Ranbir Kapoor who turned it down and later was given to the debutant Ranveer Singh.

The last and the latest movie in the list is Gully Boy which once again proved critically and commercially successful for Ranveer Singh but was offered to Ranbir Kapoor.
