But Ranbir, who is still popular, now faces true competition in the form of another fabulous actor Ranveer Singh, who emerged stronger with every film and now set to lock horns with him, as the most sought after Bollywod box-office hero. There’s a nice little rivalry brewing up between the two. This article throws light on their journey in Bollywood till now and tries to answer who is better.
