Bollywood's next superstar Ranbir Kapoor turns 31, today, September 28. This charming actor, who was born to a star studded Kapoor family made his Bollywood debut in 2007 and has been evolving tremendously since then. From being the 'Towel boy' in Saawariya to playing a mute role in Barfi, Ranbir has impressed us with his versatile roles on screen.
He kick started his career with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's
Saawariya at the age of 24. Although this movie failed
terribly at the Box-Office, Ranbir went on to fetch himself the
Filmfare Award for Best Male Debut. Since then, Ranbir Kapoor has
always stayed in the spotlight. Be it for his relationship status,
movie performance, the actor has not faded out from the industry
like many others.
Apart from his filmography, Ranbir is often the talk of the town
for his personal life. In the past, he was dating Bollywood actress
Deepika Padukone and the couple were
pretty open about it. However, Ranbir is now hush hush about his
personal life. The actor is rumoured to be dating Katrina Kaif,
but he chooses to keep such matters under the blanket. He said that
he does not want his life to be a reality show.
This heartthrob of Bollywood makes all the girls go gaga over
him. Apart from his charming looks and well toned body, the actor's
acting skills have been well acclaimed by critics and audiences. In
the past few years, we can see that the actor has grown in the
industry with movies like Rockstar, Wake Up Sid
