September 28th 1982 saw the birth of the suave Ranbir Kapoor into the first family of Bollywood. He is the son of actors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, great-grandson of Prithviraj Kapoor and grandson of Raj Kapoor. This six-footer studied at Bombay Scottish and his college years were at Le Strasberg Institute. He is currently dating one of the upcoming actresses, Deepika Padukone.
He kick started his career in the industry, where his family already holds an impressive record, with two movies Karma and India 1964 in 2004. He also donned the hat of an assistant director on the sets of Prem Granth, Aa Ab Laut Chalen and the award-winning Black.
It was followed by a commercial movie with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya. The much talked about movie hit the screens in 2007, where he starred opposite another newcomer Sonam Kapoor, a childhood friend and a star daughter herself.
