Ranbir Kapoor (born 28 September 1982) is an Indian actor who appears in Bollywood movies. Before starting as an actor, Kapoor appeared in two short films: Passion to Love (2002), which he directed himself, and India 1964 (2004). Kapoor, who was initially aspiring to be a director, assisted Sanjay Leela Bhansali with the direction of the 2005 movie Black. Not much later, Bhansali asked him to act in his next directional venture, Saawariya, opposite newcomer Sonam Kapoor. The film didn’t do very well at the box office, but Kapoor’s performance was largely appreciated, and he won the Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut that year.
Kapoor earned positive reviews for his performance in Wake Up Sid (2009). He later appeared in the romantic comedy Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani (2009) and the political thriller Raajneeti (2010), the latter being his largest commercial success to date. In 2011, Kapoor starred and earned critical acclaim for his performance in Imtiaz Ali’s Rockstar, for which he received the Best Actor and Best Actor (Critics) awards at the Filmfare ceremony.
As of January 2013, Kapoor is scheduled to appear in Ayan Mukherjee's Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani alongside Deepika Padukone, Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet opposite Anushka Sharma and Abhinav Kashyap's Besharam alongside Parineeti Chopra.

From innocent Janaradan to arrogant Jordan, Ranbir got everything right in Rockstar. If there were any doubts that this rock star didn’t have acting in his genes, this movie did well to dispel them.
Playing a deaf-mute but young and lively boy isn’t exactly a piece of cake, but the Kapoor lad did it, and he did it well. So well, in fact, that the movie was sent to the Academy Awards as India’s official entry.
Wake Up Sid
In the third film of his career, Ranbir Kapoor proved his mettle in a coming-of-age film. His boy-next-door looks, excellent comic-timing, and the chemistry he shared with the Konkona Sen Sharma – earned him his first Filmfare Best Actor nomination.
What are leading ladies for? Ranbir Kapoor is one man who’s been linked to almost all the leading ladies he has worked with. From Saawariya co-star Sonam Kapoor to his Rockstar co-star Nargis Fakhri.
On and Off Affair With Kat: We have heard it a million times that RK is more single than the word single itself, than can anyone please justify their couple spotting. The air is really fuzzy around Ranbir Kapoor and his terms with Katrina Kaif.
