With a face like that and a disarming smile, it's no wonder that birthday boy Ranbir Kapoor makes girls go weak in the knees. The actor's Casanova image has made headlines for a while now and here are nine ladies who've had been linked to the playboy...
Imran Khan's wife Avantika Malik was Ranbir Kapoor's classmate and Ranbir often hung out on the sets of teen drama 'Just Mohabbat' in which Avantika had a small part. They dated for a bit, but this teenage crush didn't last long. Avantika fell for Imran, after meeting him at a party, and they dated for years before finally tying the knot last year
Ranbir admitted that he had a crush on designer Nandita Mahtani in an interview to a newspaper. And even though Nandita is way older than Ranbir, they had dated for a while. However, Ranbir's mother Neetu Singh did not approve of their relationship, forcing the mamma's boy to back off.
They were the industry's hottest couple when they were together and Deepika Padukone even had the intials 'RK' tattooed onto the nape of her neck. But a happy ending was not to be, when rumours of a relationship between Ranbir and Katrina began to make news. The couple broke up, and Deepika remained bitter for a while, as was gauged from all her catty comments about her former beau on the 'Koffee with Karan' show. But Bollywood makes for strange bedfellows and the two have now decided to brush their differences under the carpet and have already begun work on Ayan Mukerjee's next, together.
Sonam Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor debuted together in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Saawariya' and were rumoured to be an item. The Kapoors however denied the same, claiming that they were just good friends. Things soured a bit after Sonam's uncharitable remarks about Ranbir on 'Koffee With Karan', but they still remain on cordial terms
Their reel life chemistry became real life gossip during the shooting of 'Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani'. Ranbir has never openly admitted to dating Katrina Kaif but there were several reports of their growing fondness for each other, including one about them getting cozy on an international flight.
Kingfisher calendar model Angela Jonsson caught Ranbir's eye at Anushka Sharma's birthday bash. The Bandra girl admitted that she went on a bunch of dates with Ranbir and there was nothing more than friendship between them. However when Ranbir was asked about the same, he coldly denied dating her. Guess the Kapoor boy didn't expect Angela to kiss and tell!
Pakistani-Czech model Nargis Fakhri also made headlines for her link-up with her co-star. Nargis who debuted with Imtiaz Ali's 'Rockstar' had a reportedly short-lived affair with the casanova as Ranbir wasn't ready to commit. Nargis has gone on to be linked with a number of men, that include Shayan Munshi and Shahid Kapoor
Sources said that after her break-up with John Abraham, Bipasha Basu tried to woo Ranbir, who has been a friend since they acted together in 'Bachna Ae Haseeno'. She was also agony aunt to Ranbir during his nasty break-up with Deepika. Ranbir has also mentioned that Bipasha is his '4am friend' in one of his interviews.
Priyanka Chopra aka Piggy Chops got on really well with Ranbir during the filming of 'Anjaana Anjaani'. Their lip lock in the movie fuelled rumours of a relationship that both actors denied. Their chemistry in Anurag Basu's 'Barfi!' brought the screen to life again and we're not sure what's cooking, but it's certainly warm under this pot lid.
