Bollywood superstar, Ranbir Kapoor, is India’s heart-throb with millions of fans around the world. Even when the actor is in London, he is greeted by screaming fans when they spot him enjoying a meal at Nobu, relaxing at Café Rouge on James Street or shopping at Selfridges.
Born to actors Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh, Ranbir belongs to the First Family of Indian cinema and is the grandson of India’s most noted actor, Raj Kapoor.
“Kapoor learnt method acting at New York’s Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute and is one of the few Bollywood actors with a formal training in performing arts.”
In 2007, Ranbir made his acting debut with Saawariya which won him several accolades and established him as a budding superstar. His performances in his last few films such as Barfi and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and the commercial success of these movies gave him a straight ticket to the big league.
Kapoor will be seen in UK cinemas this month in Bombay Velvet, produced by Fox Star India, a joint venture between 20th Century Fox and Star India. He describes the film as “a dream experience”.
“The look [for my character] has been inspired by Indian actors Kishore Kumar and Raj Kapoor from the 1950’s as well as Robert De Niro.”-Ranbir Kapoor, LSTFI alumnus
