Ranbir Kapoor




Ranbir Kapoor, born on September 28, 1982, is a celebrated Indian actor known for his remarkable contributions to Hindi-language films. Renowned as one of the highest-paid actors in Hindi cinema, Kapoor has consistently appeared in Forbes India's Celebrity 100 list since 2012. His illustrious career is decorated with numerous awards, including seven Filmfare Awards, reflecting his exceptional talent and dedication to his craft.

Kapoor's early life was marked by a deep connection to his family's cinematic legacy. Born in Bombay, Maharashtra, he grew up in a household deeply entrenched in the Hindi film industry. As the son of actors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, and the grandson of the legendary actor-director Raj Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor was destined for the silver screen. Despite academic struggles during his school years, Kapoor excelled in sports, particularly football. His parents' troubled marriage and personal experiences profoundly influenced his emotional reservoir, driving him towards a career in film.

Kapoor pursued filmmaking and method acting at the School of Visual Arts and the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York City. After completing his education in Mumbai and New York, he returned to India to pursue acting. His early career included assisting Sanjay Leela Bhansali on the film "Black" (2005) before making his acting debut with Bhansali's "Saawariya" (2007). Despite its critical and commercial failure, Kapoor's talent was undeniable.

Kapoor's breakthrough came with the coming-of-age film "Wake Up Sid" (2009), followed by the romantic comedy "Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani" (2009) and the political drama "Raajneeti" (2010). His performances as a troubled musician in "Rockstar" (2011) and a cheerful deaf-and-mute man in "Barfi!" (2012) earned him consecutive Filmfare Awards for Best Actor, solidifying his status as a versatile and talented actor. The romantic comedy "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" (2013) further established his star power.

However, Kapoor's career experienced a series of commercial failures, with notable exceptions being "Ae Dil Hai Mushkil" (2016) and "Sanju" (2018). His portrayal of Sanjay Dutt in "Sanju" won him another Filmfare Award and was widely acclaimed. Following a hiatus, Kapoor returned with significant success in the fantasy film "Brahmāstra: Part One – Shiva" (2022) and the action drama "Animal" (2023), the latter becoming his highest-grossing release and earning him his fourth Best Actor award at Filmfare.

Kapoor's personal life has also been a subject of media attention. His relationships, including high-profile ones with Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif, have often been in the limelight. In 2018, he began dating actress Alia Bhatt, and the couple married in April 2022. They welcomed their daughter, Raha, in November 2022. Kapoor has been open about his struggles with addiction and the impact of his parents' marriage on his life, contributing to his depth as an actor.

Beyond his acting career, Ranbir Kapoor is known for his philanthropic efforts. He supports various charities and causes, serving as the vice-captain of the All Stars Football Club, which raises funds through celebrity matches. Kapoor co-owns Mumbai City FC, a team in the Indian Super League, and has actively promoted football in India. His involvement extends to supporting underprivileged children, environmental causes, and disaster relief efforts. Kapoor has been a goodwill ambassador for initiatives like the Mijwan Welfare Society and YUWA, an all-girls football team in Jharkhand.
