Those brown orbs of eyes, those perfect whites etched in a beautiful smile , perfect angular  face, chiseled masculature & charasmatic persona. I am talking about none other  than Ranbir Kapoor (Most of the girls would be suffering battering butterflies by now). Born to 70s superstars Rishi kapoor and Neetu singh , on 28th September 1982, one can guess where he inherited his looks from. His name Ranbir Raj Kapoor inspired from none other than his own grandfather, Raj Kapoor a.k.a legendary SHOWMAN. 

Kapoor studied film in America  and  began his career by assisting, one of the established director's- Sanjay leela bhansali (for movie Black) and hit screen with his debut in the year 2007 in movie Saawariya . The movie may not have been box office hit but the towel dance certainly brandished headlines .  The cute- chocolate- boy image created then, prevails till date.  He broke thousands of girls heart, when news of his being involved with one of the leading contemporaries’, Deepika Padukone, started doing the rounds. However , this relationship did not last very long and the news of their break up was soon hitting air. Later, the actor was linked with  many of the leading ladies such as Katrina Kaif and Nargis Fakhri. Tagging his name with that of a Cassanova. This ,however, did not stop people from loving him. He's a charmer  all the same. [Being friends with many dosen't make you flirt with them.]


Contrary to the popular belief , Ranbir Kapoor is a mumma’s boy . He confines everything in his mother, be it his girlfriend or a usual emotional turmoil and contrastingly a very orthodox relationship with his father.  Kapoor was an average kid throughout his life, scoring in late 50’s. [No, Im not kidding]. Getting his report card from school was worse than being hit by a truck , as for most of us it still is.


His limelight era began with his performances in Wake up Sid, Ajab Prem ki Ghazab Kahani and Rocket Singh, even thought these movies weren’t much of a hit with lay man. Then released Rajneeti, which was a huge commercial success and since then there’s no looking back for Ranbir. Well it never was, climbing the ladder of success, banking one hit after another. Ranbir Kapoor happily joined hands with the 100 crore club with Rockstar, a huge hit. His rogue persona in the movie was considered ‘Lascivious’ by many, recent accomplishment being Barfi , which is now NOMINATED for the OSCARS. However , the film has also been accused of copying other legendary movies [Copied or not , the movie was outstanding] .

Kapoor's currently working on ‘Yeh jawaani hai deewani’, Deepika Padukone being the female lead. It will be a must watch for obvious reasons!

I'd rather conclude with a heart warming line- Ladies, don’t lose hope, the most eligible bachelor in country is still Available!
