Ranbir Kapoor comes from a filmy family- his parents, grandfather Raj Kapoor, and great-grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor made their mark on the Bollywood industry.

Ranbir Kapoor studied acting at the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute in New York, USA, and returned to India to pursue an acting career in Bollywood. He, however, started in the industry as the assistant director to Sanjay Leela Bhansali in the film, Black. The latter gave Ranbir his acting debut in 2007, with Saawariya, which won Ranbir Kapoor his first Filmfare Award, for Best Male Debut.

Early Life

He admits to scoring poorly during his school days at Bombay Scottish School, Mahim, Mumbai, and recalls spending a lot of time punished outside class. He went to junior college at the HR College of Commerce and Economics and then left for New York City, USA, to studying film-making at the School of Visual Arts. Citing that experience as useless, Ranbir then took up acting classes at the Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute. He soon returned to Mumbai to pursue an acting career.

Ranbir Kapoor has openly admitted to his parents’ dysfunctional relationship and how it affected him as a child. He claims to have had an estranged relationship with his father during his school days and would often cry on the steps till the early hours of the morning.

Career

In 2007, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali cast Ranbir Kapoor in Saawariya, where the actor plays a tramp who falls helplessly in love with a woman. Although the film wasn’t too well received, Ranbir Kapoor won the Filmfare Award for the Best Male Debut. Ranbir then went on to act in Yash Raj Films’ 2008 romantic comedy Bachna Ae Haseeno, along with Deepika Padukone, Bipasha Basu, and Minissha Lamba. This film went on to be a commercial success and Ranbir Kapoor’s entry into Indian cinema had begun. The following year, he starred in director Ayan Mukherji’s Wake Up Sid, Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani, opposite Katrina Kaif, and Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year. The superstar picked up a Critics Award for Best Actor for all three of the films, which propelled him to one of Bollywood’s leading actors. In 2010, Ranbir Kapoor delivered a stellar performance in Prakash Jha’s political thriller Raajneeti, and received a Filmfare Best Actor nomination for it. His next film Anjaana Anjaani, opposite Priyanka Chopra did not do too well at the box office, with Kapoor coming under criticism for a sub-par performance.

The actor quickly picked himself up with an award winning performance in Imtiaz Ali’s drama film, Rockstar, in 2011. The following year his role in the rom-com Barfi! cemented his status as one of Bollywood’s leading stars. Barfi! is his first film to earn over a billion rupees at the box office, and the actor received a lot of praise for it. His role in Ayan Mukerji’s 2013 film Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani saw him deliver one of his best performances of all time. The film earned over three billion rupees, ranking as one of Bollywood’s highest grossing films, ever.

However, following Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Ranbir Kapoor’s films largely failed at the box office. His heavily marketed film Besharam, which also stars his parents, proved to be a critical and commercial disappointment, and failed to live up to any of its hype. Following a year’s break, the actor featured in the movies Roy, Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet, and Tamasha, in which he acted opposite his former flame Deepika Padukone. Although he was nominated for a Filmfare Award for Best Actor in Tamasha, all these 2015 released films bombed at the domestic box office. Playing the role of Ayan Sanger, an aspiring singer, Ranbir was cast alongside Anushka Sharma, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, and Fawad Khan in Karan Johar’s romantic drama Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. The movie was well-received and was declared a box-office hit. Following the success of Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, Ranbir was seen in Anurag Basu’s 2017 adventure comedy Jagga Jasoos, where he shared screen space with Katrina Kaif, and was also signed to play the role of Sanjay Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani’s untitled biopic.
