Ranbir Kapoor was born Ranbir Raj Kapoor in 1982 in Mumbai on 28th September. He is the son of veteran actors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh. Well, if you look at him closely, his facial features clearly have a resemblance to his mother. Ranbir comes from the film fraternity of the Kapoor clan.
He is the grandson of Indian cinema showman Raj Kapoor, a legend who cannot be forgotten. And now the torch of acting genes is followed by Ranbir who too has established himself as an established actor in Bollywood. The actor has one sister, named Riddhima, who is in the profession of interior and fashion designing.
Ranbir is the cousin brother of actresses Karishma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor, who is now married. He went to a renowned school in Mumbai, Bombay Scottish School in Mahim. If we talk about his student life, then honestly, he was really not interested in studies and was average or even below average in comparison to his classmates. But he excelled in sports activities, especially football.
There are few actors who are open to their personal life. Ranbir is one of them. The heartthrob actor has openly revealed about the disturbances in the marital life of his parents Rishi and Neetu. And as a child, it did affect him mentally. He once cleared about how the fights between his actor parents turned very aggressive. As a child, he used to sit helplessly on his steps with his head between knees. Ranbir used to wait for the end of the fight. And in this waiting, he sometimes did not realize about the daytime.
All these ugly experiences paved for him to develop an interest in film line. Ranbir clearly said that he was more close to his mother Neetu than his late father Rishi. After passing his 10th in school, he however accompanied his father Rishi on the sets of the film Aa Ab Laut Chalein, a 90s movie. And there both father-son relationships showed improvement.
Ranbir appears handsome in appearance with good features. He stands tall in comparison to his father Rishi Kapoor at the height of six feet and weighs 78 kg. He is fair in complexion.
When Ranbir was in his seventh grade, he had experienced his first relationship with a fellow girl and got even hurt also. This brought him into a state of depression. When he was doing a multi-starrer film Bachna Ae Haseeno, a romantic comedy film that came long ago in 2008, his closeness with actress Deepika Padukone who was also in the film grew. Like Shahrukh-Kajol hit Jodi, his pairing with the latter actress was also liked by many fans.
But unfortunately, their relationship ended with the breakup. However, that did not affect their professional life. Both were seen in the film Tamasha. Well, the actress is now married to actor Ranveer Singh, whereas, Ranbir has also moved on to his next relationship with Alia Bhatt. Both will be seen in the upcoming movie Brahmastra. Ranbir has confessed that he did get addicted to drinking, smoking, and drugs.
