was one of those handful blessed ones to be born with a silver spoon in
mouth. Born in the influential Kapoor family to Rishi Kapoor
Singh, Ranbir was destined to become a star. The Kapoor lad started his
education in Mumbai and then later joined Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film
Institute in New York for further studies. It wasn't until 2005 that he
joined the Bollywood Film Fraternity as an assistant director of Sanjay
Leela Bhansali during Black.
He debuted in the year 2007 with the film Saawariya,
also directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali
. Though the film didn't do well
at the Box Office, he managed to bag the Best Debut award for the film.
The 2008 romantic comedy Bachna Ae Haseeno
was the first time that Ranbir got the taste of success. Since then his career graph has seen ups and downs in forms of Wake Up Sid
, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani
and Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year
It wasn't till 2011 that he finally won the elusive Best actor awards, and that too for two consecutive years for Rockstar
respectively. This year the lad saw the top of the peak in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani
also starring Deepika Padukone
, which gained its position as the fourth
highest grossing film of all time. Though with the high came a low when
his recent release Besharam
didn't do much of any business and was tagged a flop. Did you know?
- Ranbir, even after becoming a star, takes pocket money from his mother every week.
- Ranbir's middle name is Raj, after his paternal grandfather, Raj Kapoor.
- Ranbir's favorite vacation destination is New York, as that is where he went to college.
- He was an assistant director on the sets of Prem Granth and Aa Ab Laut Chalen.
Ranbir's upcoming projects consist of Roy
, Bombay Valvet
with Anushka Sharma and Jagga Jasoos
with Katrina Kaif. It's yet to be seen if they bring the young lad
success or are a disappointment. And here we bid adieu wishing the
handsome lad all the luck and success for his future lineup.
