Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt's Gully Boy's trailer received a thundering response from the industry and fans alike. The movie that hits the screens on Valentines Day this year will see our beloved Simmba turn into a rapper and present the real Hip Hop. While the trailer looked promising, we have some high hopes pinned from Ranveer and Alia for they both are terrific actors and their collaboration would be mindboggling. And when a film as terrific as this is offered to an actor, who wouldn't bag the opportunity to star in it? Don't scratch your heads for the answer is Ranbir Kapoor.

Yes, the Brahmastra actor was apparently offered this film but he rejected it. As per a report in Times of India, the movie was offered to him two years ago when Zoya Akhtar was still finalising the cast. While the Padmaavat actor was always confirmed to play the lead, Ranbir wasn't interested in playing a supporting role to him. Though the Sanju actor has expressed a desire to star in a project with Ranveer, the role should be fulfilling for both the stars. Ranbir's reason to turn down this film seems genuine enough.

Earlier too the actor was offered Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadakne Do. The director wanted Ranbir and Kareena to come together for her family drama but they turned it down for the roles didn't impress them. The film eventually went to Ranveer and Priyanka. Well, we genuinely hope Zoya is able to cast RK Jr in her next and he has no reasons to reject it this time.
