How is Ranbir Kapoor in real life?
1. Turns out, he’s a pretty chill guy
Ajayraj Nirvana, a Jaipur resident, writes: I met Ranbir at a hotel gym once. I was watching a football match between my workout and noticed some guy standing behind me and doing the same. He was Ranbir Kapoor. I was surprised or should say stunned. We shook hands discussed the game. And I must say that he’s a pretty chilled and laid back guy.
We did our workout together. I hit arms and he did chest and back. And I even took a photo with him before leaving. And the most surprising part of that gym session was that even Siddharth Malhotra joined us during the workout.
2. He’s super humble about the love he gets
Ria Salian, who admits to being infatuated with the actor, writes: I met him in 2013 at his place after waiting for like 2 hours outside his bungalow, Krishna Raj.
He was pretty chilled out and he even apologized for making us wait outside! Cool man, I say. Being his biggest fan at that time, getting a warm teddy hug from him made me go in the la-la world for a few minutes. And yes, I must say he smells really good. As far as my experience, he is quite friendly with his fans!
3. And he loves his fans right back
Maansi Dutta, a Ranbir Kapoor fan who met him in 2015 at the press conference for Roy, writes: He is one of the most humble actors I’ve met. After the conference concluded, it became difficult to control the crowd. Everyone wanted a picture with the actor. It was a crazy but happy place. His PR team announced that will be all but he said, “Come, let’s take pictures.” My 5-year-old nephew was with me who, by the way, is a bigger fan of Ranbir than me. I wanted to make sure Advit meets him. While I couldn’t take my eyes off him, he waved towards us, met us and spoke with Advert (his youngest fan in the crowd) and got clicked with him. After a few more fan pictures he was ready to leave.

1. Ranbir Kapoor was caught into a controversy by media and has to face so many unwanted questions just because Kareena Kapoor in one of her statements on the 5th season of ‘Koffee with Karan’ remarked that she had a wish of dancing on Katrina’s – Chikni Chameli and Sheila Ki Jawani song at their (Ranbir and Katrina’s) wedding.
2. While the opening ceremony of IPL 7, Shah Rukh Khan staged a mock ‘Swayamvar’ for Virat Kohli, vice-captain of team India. Virat was asked to choose a person to be his bride of all the given choices and he incessantly chose Anushka Sharma. He was then asked by SRK to wear her photo around his neck. Virat blushed too. Declaration was made later by the couple that they were indeed in a relationship.
3. You won’t ever believe that actor Aamir Khan has a love child with Bollywood writer Jessica Hines whom he had met during the shoot of Vikram Bhatt’s Ghulam. Aamir had denied all the allegations, but Hines is very open about it. She once even said it in an interview that when their son grows up, she would tell him that his father didn’t like them! It may or may not be true, but if anyone tells so openly to everyone it sure makes us wonder that may be.
4. After his divorce with Suzanne Khan, Actor Hrithik Roshan hired a personal life coach. He wanted to move on, but he could not do it alone, so he felt the need to do so. Her work was to keep him focused and rejuvenated about work. She also helped him forget about the messy divorce and Suzanne Khan.
5. Sonakshi Sinha’s face resembled with Reena Roy. There was a hoax that Sonakshi is not Poonam Sinha’s daughter, but of Reena Roy. But yeah, that was a rumor.
Failed debut, but forgiven – Everybody knew him, his fans started shouting for him even before his debut movie came out. In a field where debut often makes or breaks an actor’s career, not only Sawariya mightily failed, but RK’s acting was a let down even for his fans. Surname sustained his career and he kept on getting work.
Bad choice of movies, but forgiven – He rejected Band Bajaa, etc. gave 4 hits in 10+ years. He did try hard with a mix of scripts, experimented with roles but failed miserably. He achieved his peak during his debut years with Bachna, got a career saver with Rockstar and sustained through Ye Jawani, with multiple forgettable movies to date. The time around his initial phase in career was an era when the audience was massively rewarding romantic movies, OSO, Jab we, Rab Ne, Jaane Tu, Love Aaj, Band Bajaa, etc. All his movies that coincided with the trend set by the audience became huge hits like all 3 movies mentioned above, but he failed to recognize it. He distanced himself from romantic movies that clearly worked for him, for reasons best known to him and went after experimental roles that not only fell out of sync with the trend of the time but didn’t prove to be standalone good movies either. However, still, his fans rooted for him
Failed image management – Image adds or reduces fans, like Tiger, etc. The only news about him is either he dumped his lead actor girlfriend or his movie flopped- none of which help his career. Ranbir is sustained through PR all this while, but the audience knew more about his various dating escapades than his acting skills or movies. To add to that, his bad handling of relationships with all top actresses left the latter’s mega fan base in bad taste, adding to his negativity but positive publicity for all these actresses, each of whom went on to become even bigger stars, thanks to their hard work. Evidently, fans of his exes are the ones who specially have negative comments for him – not a good thing for a struggling actor. Bad movies is only shrinking his fan base. The only person calling him a “top actor” is his friend Karan Johar. The friendship is understandable, but Karan himself hasn’t been much of a help to his friend either, with megaflops of Bombay Velvet and Ae Dil to their credit.
Bad-mouthing – Movie industry also works on relationships, and he has burnt bridges with some of the fellow actors, got himself into bad books of several top actresses/mostly his exes, and bad-mouthed top directors. He is probably the only actor to have gone on the longest rant trashing Bhansali. His loss, Ranveer’s gain. Bhansali single-handedly made Ranveer from a mere actor in Befikre to a superstar today.
Never hit rock-bottom – He is still called the “next” superstar, movies have still been coming his way, sizeable fans still shout for him, has a strong financial backup, so it was never existential crises for him. He is struggling to give hits, but not struggling to get work. All this created a comfort zone for him. Probably why, Ranbir seems non-committal towards his work while Ranveer, Alia, Rajkumar, and all others who started much later than Ranbir have improved and made conscious effort to convey their talent to the audience, they have earned fans and supporters and good directors over the years. All of them also had relationships but it was either how well they treated their partners or a cordial-silent breakup and moving on that never hampered them, but it was majorly their work and struggle that always made headlines.
Sanju becomes a hit and Vicky Kaushal gets the credit, not forgiven anymore – It can’t get worse than that. The movie had only 1 lead actor, no lead actress but the supporting actor takes away all the praise. Though Ranbir was much talked about during the trailer, it was Vicky and Hirani who took away all the praise once the movie released. This rings warning bells for Ranbir. This also shows off the two actors, it was the newbie Vicky whose acting talent hit the audience more than the veteran Ranbir, which again isn’t positive for a senior actor
There are several similarities between Ranbir and Abhishek’s career graph – long career with seldom hits but enough chances are given (even for a nepo-kid), never really saw rock bottom, will never have existential crises, enjoy the free benefits and privilege more than committing to improving upon own work, will always have a limited fan base. Possibly Ranbir will also settle with a more successful wife, and linger on. And then there are Tiger, Sara, Alia, also products of nepotism, but their incessant effort and hard work say it all esp. for Tiger who saw immense criticism since the start but rose like a phoenix.
The current phase seems one of the last chances of redemption for Ranbir. He survived all these years also because there was no competition from new talent and 3 Khans stayed a cut above the rest. But today, the outsider talent powerhouses Ayushmaan, Vicky, Rajkumar, Ranveer (though Sonam’s cousin but non-filmy parents), etc. have risen to mainstream cinema and the same set of audience is rewarding their content and talent. Bad content and acting shook Khan’s thrones aswell. The competition will only get tougher. He should pray Alia’s record success rubs him in his next aswell and gives him yet another chance, unlike what happened with Shahid’s Shandaar, which is ironically called Shahid’s flop more than hers.
