Ranveer Singh has reportedly been dropped by Yash Raj Films after a number of flop films recently.
The actor whose film career was kicked off with ‘Band Baaja Baaraat’ in 2010 under the huge production banner, has not had the same success recently.
Singh’s cricket-fest drama ’83’ proved a box office disaster, followed by ‘Jayeshbhai Jordaar’ and ‘Cirkus’. Singh and Yash Raj Films will be taking a sabbatical before they reunite later.
A source informed Bollywood Hungama, “Aditya Chopra, the YRF head honcho, and his core team are heavily invested in the YRF Spy Universe at the moment. They recently delivered an all-time blockbuster with Shah Rukh Khan-starrer Pathaan (2023) and are gearing up for the release of Salman Khan’s Tiger 3. They are also planning forthcoming films in this universe. A lot is at stake as each film is going to be heavily budgeted and hence, there can’t be room for error. Each film needs utmost concentration, right from pre-production to the last mile release.”

The source added, “In such a scenario, a film with Ranveer Singh is the last thing on their mind. Of course, they’ll be making non-Spy Universe films too. But of the 6 films that Ranveer has done with YRF, there’s only one film that was not a flop. And that’s Gunday (2014). This film, too, was a semi-hit. Band Baaja Baaraat, Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl (2011) and Befikre (2016) were average grossers. Kill Dil (2014) and Jayeshbhai Jordaar, meanwhile, flopped.”
The source concluded by saying, “YRF deciding to take a break from Ranveer Singh is temporary. Ranveer may be considered if YRF finds the right script which justifies his presence, and can be mounted on the right mid-budget to safeguard the overall commercial prospects of the movie.”
