|Singh made his acting debut in 1996 in Tere Mere Sapne which was produced under Amitabh Bachchan Corporation Limited. Later that year he played alongside Tabu in Maachis for which he won the Filmfare Award for Best First Male.
He has appeared in several films as a leading actor who failed but he succeeds with his leading roles in multi-starring Daag: The Fire vs. Sanjay Dutt, Kya Kehna vs. Preity Zinta and Josh opposite Aishwarya Rai and Shah Rukh Khan. He has been nominated for filmfare awards twice, in different categories.
After some initial successes, his career went badly because of the multiple dislocation of his shoulder joint, which he suffered while skiing in Goa. Because of the shoulder pain, he could not train or stay in shape, which caused him to gain weight and lose roles. His latest releases include Aamdani Atthani Kharcha Rupaiyaa, Bharat Bhagya Vidhata and the delayed release of Sarhad Paar which was shot in 2002 and released in 2006. The three films have flopped at the box office.
In 2012, he made a comeback with the multi-starring film Chaar Din Ki Chandni. The film featured Tusshar Kapoor, Kulraj Randhawa, Anupam Kher, Om Puri and Farida Jalal in lead roles among others. Chaar Din Ki Chandni received a mixed response from critics, and turned out to be a flop at most places in the box office in India.
From 2012 to today, he joined Bollywood as an actor. That same year, he played a small role in the English film The Reluctant Fundamentalist. He last appeared in Zilla Ghaziabad who had been delayed for years, but it was published in August 2013.
