When the 25-year-old son of Neetu Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor had made his debut in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Saawariya and had taken off his shirt and towel to swoon his audience, we had thought he would just be nothing but a product of nepotism. But over the years, he had proved to be not just another star kid and rightfully deserves to be exactly where he is! Be it the spoilt and lost rich kid, Sid or the lovable Rocket Singh, the dreamer Jordan or charming Bunny, the absolutely adorable Barfi or Ved, who had given us all a reality check of life, Ranbir Kapoor truly owns our hearts with the dedication he has to play different roles and willingness to take risks in his journey.

When Ranbir Kapoor had turned 37 last year, his mother, Neetu Kapoor had posted pictures from one of his birthday celebrations during childhood and had revealed how that day had brought in loads of nostalgia. Wishing Ranbir happiness always, Neetu had written, “This day brings loads of nostalgia!!!

In a throwback interview with Magzter, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had recalled a childhood memory with her brother, Ranbir Kapoor and the equation they share as they both live in different cities now. Riddhima had said, “There are so many fond childhood memories of my brother and I. We were inseparable. We used to fight all the time and I was like a boy, literally. We used to play cricket every Sunday and do a lot of more boyish stuff. We had a blast growing up. Now that we live in different cities, we have to make time to see each other. So we do it on occasions like my mum’s birthday, my dad’s birthday, and anniversaries or when I am in Bombay for a festival. We make time to take each other out on dinners. Ranbir juggles his time and makes sure he spends time with Samara and me. He is very fond of my little one. Samara, being the only child in both the families, she’s the apple of everyone’s eye, especially for my brother. He does spend a lot of quality time with us.” (Also Read: Mira Rajput Kapoor Wishes Her Baby Girl, Misha On Daughter’s Day, Hopes To Trouble Her ‘Pops’ Always)
