He even worked from 7 am to 4 am at times. Sonam Kapoor was also an AD on Black and fortunately they both debuted in SLB’s next Saawariya.

3.  He is named after his grandfather Raj Kapoor, whose real name was Ranbir Raj Kapoor. Interestingly, he was also grandfather, Raj Kapoor’s favourite grandchild. Whenever Ranbir’s mom Neetu Singh Kapoor scolded Ranbir, little RK would complain to his Dadajee who would in turn scold Neetu.

4.  But despite all the scoldings, Ranbir is a complete Mommy’s Boy. In fact his mother used to cut his nails until Ranbir moved out of his family bungalow.

5.  The Tamasha actor had his first girlfriend when he was in Class 7. When that relationship broke up Ranbir thought he’d never fall in love again. However, he has been rumoured to be dating quite a few girls including Avantika Malik, Sonam Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif, after entering Bollywood.

6.  Like the rest of the Kapoor Khandaan, even RK is a huge foodie. His favourites include crab from the famous Mahesh Lunch Home, the Teesri (clams) and Bombay Duck from Gajalee and also home-cooked bhindi, jungli mutton and paya.

7.  Though he has a strong personality, the Kapoor lad is a sensitive man and he isn’t ashamed of shedding a tear or two. He had even confessed in an interview that he cries often.

8. Even though he earns a lot of money through acting and endorsements, RK still takes Rs. 1500 per week as pocket money from his mother.

9. When Ranbir was small, he fell with the face-first on the toilet pot, while he was rushing to the loo. Resulting in an inch-long cut on the right cheek. He also suffers from Nasal Deviated Septum, which makes him eat and talk too fast.

10. Whenever he is in the car, he has a habit to add the numbers on the number plate of almost every vehicle that he sees.
