Aditya Chopra, the company's vice president, later saw the videotape tapes and was impressed by Singh's game, and decided that it was the role of Bittoo Sharma, the movie's hero.
However, director Maneesh Sharma needed something more convincing and he was called to a few more auditions over the next two weeks until they were completely convinced of his caliber.After two weeks of testing, Singh was confirmed for the role of Bittoo, with Anushka Sharma playing the female lead.
Singh described Bittoo Sharma's role as a typical Delhi boy. To prepare for the role, he spent time with students on the campus of the University of Delhi.
Singh's next release was Lootera , a period novel written and directed by Vikramaditya Motwane, and starring Sonakshi Sinha. An adaptation of O. Henry's novel, The Last Leaf, Lootera has been critically acclaimed. Rajeev Masand of CNN-IBN wrote that Singh "brings a silent sensitivity to Varun, and sometimes a blazing intensity, offering a finely internalized performance, it leaves a lasting impression." However, Lootera performed badly at the box office.

His performance in the film established him in Hindi cinema and earned him the Best Actor award at Filmfare.Singh played the opposite role to Deepika Padukone in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, entitled Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, in which he played Ram, a Gujarati boy based on the character of Romeo.
Bhansali was impressed by Singh's performance in Band Baaja Baaraat and decided to screen him for the film. Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela has generated positive reviews from critics, as has Singh's performance.
In 2016, Singh starred in Befikre, Aditya Chopra's romantic comedy, opposite Vaani Kapoor.

Variety's Jay Weissberg found the film to be a "too energetic twist on the theme of old friends with benefits" and criticized Singh's "manic behavior". He underperformed at the box office.
After a year's absence, Singh portrays Alauddin Khilji, a ruthless Muslim king, in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmaavat drama , starring Deepika Padukone and Shahid Kapoor, who marks his third collaboration with Bhansali and Padukone.
