The fourth generation Kapoor has already proven that he does belong to the first family of Bollywood, with varied performance in films from Saawariya to Rockstar.
Born to actors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, Ranbir Kapoor is the great grandson of Prithviraj Kapoor, grandson of Raj Kapoor, and nephew to Randhir Kapoor. He has a sister Riddhima. As a child, Kapoor studied at Bombay Scottish School in Mumbai and went on to pursue method acting at The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York.
Ranbir made his debut on the big screen in the year 2007 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya, opposite Sonam Kapoor. Kapoor was then seen in 2008 in a romantic comedy Bachna Ae Haseeno alongside Bipasha Basu, Minissha Lamba and Deepika Padukone. The film performed reasonably well at the box-office. It was during the shooting of this film that Ranbir had started dating Deepika Padukone. However, the couple later broke off.
In 2009, Kapoor appeared in three films all of which were distinct from one another. The first release was Ayan Mukerji’s Wake Up Sid, followed by rom-com Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani with Katrina Kaif. His last release in that year was Shimit Amin’s Rocket Singh: Salesman Of The Year. The film showcased Ranbir in a complete Sikh avatar. Though the film didn’t do well at the box office, his performance was appreciated.
Kapoor began 2010 with Prakash Jha’s political drama Raajneeti. The film was a blockbuster and had been appreciated by audiences and critics alike. Although it was a multi-starrer with actors likes Ajay Devgan, Nana Patekar and Manoj Bajpayee, Ranbir stood out with his performance. His next release was Anjaana Anjaani with Priyanka Chopra.The film failed to make a mark at the box-office.
In 2011, Ranbir was seen in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar opposite newcomer Nargis Fakhri. The film performed well at the box-office and Ranbir’s role as Janardhan/Jordan earned him a lot of critical appreciation and two Filmfare Awards. Ranbir played the role of a deaf man in film Barfee.
Kapoor won two consecutive Best Actor awards at Filmfare for portraying a troubled musician in the 2011 drama Rockstar and a deaf-mute man in the 2012 comedy-drama Barfi!. The 2013 romantic comedy Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani proved to be the fourth highest-grossing Bollywood film of all time and led The Economic Times to credit him as “the most bankable actor of his generation”. In addition to acting in films, Kapoor supports numerous charities and causes, is vocal about issues faced by women and is the goodwill ambassador of Shabana Azmi‘s Mijwan Welfare Society. His off-screen life is the subject of fervent tabloid reporting in India.
Ranbir Kapoor was born in Mumbai on 28 September 1982 to Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, both actors of the Hindi film industry. He is the great-grandson of Prithviraj Kapoor and the grandson of actor-director Raj Kapoor. His elder sister, Riddhima Kapoor (born 1980) is an interiors and fashion designer. His paternal cousins Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor are both actresses.
Kapoor was schooled at the Bombay Scottish School in Mahim; in an interview with The Indian Express he said that he was a “naughty kid” who was “least interested in studies and would always get punished by my teachers”. Reflecting on his school life, Kapoor added, “I was never a bright student, potentially never good at dramatics, I was sometimes given one-line roles that I was happy to do so that I could bunk classes. My mother used to cry three times a year and that is when my report card used to come. I always passed but was always in the bottom five and got marks in 50s.” He was, however, interested in mathematics and literature, and was particularly fond of William Shakespeare‘s The Merchant of Venice.
The troubled marriage between his parents deeply affected him as a child. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror he recollected the fights between his parents: “Sometimes the fights would get really bad. I would be sitting on the steps, my head between my knees, till five or six in the morning, waiting for them to stop”. He added that due to these experiences there was a “reservoir of emotions building up inside [him]”, which compelled him to look for an outlet in films. Kapoor said that, while growing up, he was “petrified” of his father and “never had a friendly relationship [with him] because he used to stay very busy”, but admitted to sharing a much closer relationship with his mother.
After completing his tenth standard examinations, Kapoor travelled to America to assist his father on his directorial debut Aa Ab Laut Chalen (1999). It was during the film’s shooting schedule that he developed a closer bond with him. He subsequently enrolled at Mumbai’s H.R. College of Commerce and Economics to complete his pre-university education. Upon graduating from high school, Kapoor moved to New York City to learn film-making at the School of Visual Arts and later pursued method acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. He said that living alone in New York on a “shoe-string budget” taught him “the value of family and money”.
In New York City, Kapoor directed and starred in two short films (entitled Passion to Love and India 1964), and spent most of his time watching world cinema. He professed that the experience of learning about movies at a film school was “almost useless” and preferred being on an actual film set. He, thus, worked as an assistant director to Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the 2005 film Black. He described the experience: “I was getting beaten up, abused, doing everything from cleaning the floor to fixing the lights from 7 am to 4 am, but I was learning every day.” In an interview with CNN-IBN, Kapoor confessed that his main motive for assisting on the film was to ensure that Bhansali liked him enough to cast him as an actor for his next project.

On Bollywood: “Today I have completed five years in the industry. Saawariya came and went in a day while Barfi ran for several days. The journey has been good and wonderful. I want to do more films and more exciting characters. I am looking forward to doing good work. It feels great to be here. I feel I have got lifetime achievement award.”
On love and marriage: “”If I meet the right person, I would love to get married. I always think that I will get true love in my life. I hope I can really find that person soon with whom I can live my whole life.”
On tattooing beloved names: “Since I get linked every day, I might as well keep changing the name of the girls with a pen than a permanent tattoo.”
On Barfi!: “I think the entire credit goes to Anurag Basu for making such a superb film, and to the producers for supporting his vision. Priyanka (Chopra) and Ileana (D’Cruz) are fantastic and I’m thankful to dada (Anurag) for thinking of such a role for me. We knew that we were making a good film. But the kind of love Barfi! has already got is amazing.”
On Katrina Kaif: “I have worked with Katrina in two films and I genuinely feel she is one of the nicest, coolest, and most hard-working girls, other than being beautiful, talented and normal … a girl I can hang out and have great conversations with. I have a great connect with her as a friend and that is sometimes misconstrued. It’s a small industry and we end up working with the same people and meeting the same people, which tends to bring you close. That’s about it. I was always her dear friend.”
On his aspiration: “I aspire to be the biggest superstar and the greatest actor in the country someday! How much time, sacrifice and work that will require I don’t know, but I am willing to put in all that to achieve it.”
On importance of looks: “I am an immensely arrogant person where talent is concerned. I may not be the best looking guy around, may not have the best body and may not even be the most talented guy in the industry, but I have immense faith in my talent, my passion and my drive. And I have a good heart, which is what the audience connects with. You could have the best body, like Sylvester Stallone, with a great face, like Brad Pitt, but the audience connects with someone only if he has sincerity in his heart.”
On success: “I am here for the long run, so I don’t want to feel successful so early in my career. Also, I am too young to feel success and failure. I want to grope in the dark, struggle and work hard. At no point do I want to put up my feet and feel that I have arrived.”
On Kareena Kapoor: “Bebo was always a patakhi (bomb), khulla (straightforward), bindaas (bold) girl and she continues to be like that even today. There’s no façade to her. And this openness makes her appealing to the audience. She doesn’t take her job that seriously, yet she’s so good at it. I am really proud of her. She has an inborn talent and she has been like this since childhood.”
On Deepika Pdukone: “I am pleasantly shocked and surprised seeing her growth as an actor. Apart from working together, I’ve also been in a relationship with her and her growth as a human being has been amazing. When we meet, I can see the confidence she now has. She has changed as a person. I’ve always maintained that she is a beautiful person. Apart from being physically attractive, she is beautiful from within. Deepika has surrendered to her work brilliantly. I was really amazed by her performance in Cocktail.”http://hindimovie.audio/ranbir-kapoor/All About Ranbir Kapoorhttp://hindimovie.audio/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Ranbir-Kapoor-742x1024.jpghttp://hindimovie.audio/wp-content/uploads/2017/07/Ranbir-Kapoor-150x150.jpgArtist
