It was really interesting to see Ranveer playing the role of a conman in his next movie Ladies vs Ricky Bahl. In the Ranveer and Anushka came back together and the movie went on to earn Rs.84 crores gross from the box office on a budget of 20 crores and the movie ended up being a commercial success despite receiving a mixed response from critics.
