Ranbir Kapoor birthday special | Some Interesting facts
Ranbir Kapoor turns 37 this year and is expected to celebrate the day with his family and girlfriend Alia Bhatt. This birthday will also be special for the actor as his parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh have finally returned to India after their 11-month-long stay in New York.
With Rishi finally back after getting back after treatment for cancer, the Kapoor clan has much more to celebrate and what better occasion than Ranbir’s birthday.
The actor, however, continues to keep away from the eyes of the paparazzi and is rarely spotted in the city. The actor claims to be an introvert in real life and likes watching movies or spending time with his dogs in his free time. There is more to him than just his impressive lineup of films and ever increasing fan base.
Ranbir had a huge crush on Avantika Malik during his teen years. She later married actor Imran Khan and has a daughter with him. The two reportedly split this year.
Even before he worked with parents Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh in the 2013 film Besharam, he assisted on Rishi’s directorial, the 1999 film Aa ab laut Chalen. This improved the relationship of the father-son duo.
Ranbir loves his mother Neetu’s three recipes: bhindi (ladyfinger), jungli mutton and paya. The actor still has his mom’s number on speed dial.
Ranbir often plays football when he is not busy with his work assignments. He is a fan of FC Barcelona and footballer Lionel Messi. He also owns the football team Mumbai City FC in the Indian Super League.
The actor is not on social media so what keeps him glued to the phone screen – Candy Crush.
Ranbir enrolled himself for an acting course at the Lee Strasberg Institute and School of Visual Arts because his favourite actor Al Pacino also went to the same institute.
Ranbir loves to read autobiographies and biographies and his favourite book is Heavier Than Heaven, a biography on Kurt Cobain.
Ranbir does not have a nickname like Kareena Kapoor’s Bebo or Kairsma Kapoor’s Lolo. He is fondly called ‘baba’ by his parents.
