Ranbir Kapoor is an Indian actor who was born on September 28, 1982. He is one of Hindi cinema’s highest-paid actors, and he has been a part of Forbes India’s Celebrity 100 list since 2012. Kapoor has won numerous accolades, including six Filmfare Awards. His 1.83-meter height makes him one of the tallest actors in Bollywood.
Kapoor studied filmmaking and method acting at the School of Visual Arts and the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute, respectively, as the son of actors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh and the grandson of famous actor-director Raj Kapoor. Following that, he worked as an assistant director on Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Black (2005) and made his acting debut in Bhansali’s tragic romance Saawariya (2007), which was a critical and commercial flop.
Kapoor won two consecutive Filmfare Best Actor awards for the romantic drama Rockstar (2011), in which he played a tortured artist and the comedy-drama Barfi! (2012), in which he played a happy deaf-and-mute guy. This changed in 2018 when Kapoor won another Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Sanjay Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani’s biopic Sanju, which became one of the highest-grossing Indian films of all time.
Kapoor is a supporter of organizations and causes in addition to his acting career. He is also a co-owner of Mumbai City FC, an Indian Super League football side.
