Yes, you read it right, before Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal, Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh was the first choice for the films, “Animal” and “Sam Bahadur”. However, Ranveer Singh rejected taking up the offers of both films.
Why Ranveer Singh Rejected “Animal”?
As per Zoom, Bollywood actor Ranveer Singh was initially offered “Animal”, however, the actor rejected the offer since the theme of the film was “too dark” and violent. Due to the same reason, Ranveer had previously dropped the film, “Kabir Singh”.
Why Ranveer Singh Rejected “Sam Bahadur”?
On the other hand, Ranveer Singh opted to reject Vicky Kaushal starrer Sam Bahadur since he was already gearing up for his film, Kapil Dev in 83 during that time.
