and execution as well. Similarly there have been times when a director has
completely changed an actor’s career by bringing the best out of them, so here

commercial and critical success.

1. Sanjay Leela Bhansali – Ranveer Singh.


While Sanjay Leela Bhansali is known for some of the biggest commercial and
critical hits of various actors including Shah Rukh Khan starring in Devdas,
his collaboration with Ranveer Singh for three films – Goliyon Ki Raasleela :
Ram Leela, Bajirao Mastrani and Padmavat definitely helped Ranveer cement his
name in the list of best and top actors.

acclaim for his acting skills.
