Ranbir Kapoor is one of the best actors of his generation and he’s getting better with every movie. Good looks and acting skills are in his genes and he is definitely banking on them. He has had a very stable, non-controversial professional life so far. But his love life is exactly the opposite.
Ranbir Kapoor has too many names in his list of link ups. Let’s take a look:
1. Avantika Malik
She became a popular face when she acted in the hit teen drama Just Mohabbat. She is reportedly Ranbir’s first crush since the serial aired. He even visited the sets of the serial to meet Avantika. The relationship did not stand the test of time and the couple parted ways. Avantika eventually married Imran Khan from Jaane Tu… Ya Jaane Na.
2. Sonam Kapoor
The duo debuted together with Saawariya and allegedly sparks flew between the two co-stars. Before acting together, they both assisted director Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the movie Black, although they never admitted to the relationship. On a chat show, Sonam sided with Deepika Padukone saying that although Ranbir is a great human being, he is not that great at being a boyfriend.
3. Nandita Mahtani
Another one of Ranbir’s crushes turned girlfriend was Nandita, who’s a fashion designer and was 10 years elder to Ranbir. She is also the ex-wife of actor Sanjay Kapur who was Karisma’s husband. Karisma is Ranbir’s cousin. In spite of the complicated nature of their relationship, the two decided to be together but parted ways. Some say it was because Ranbir was unable to handle the age difference.
4. Deepika Padukone
Probably Ranbir’s most talked about relationship, it lasted for 2 years. The couple had openly accepted being in love with each other and Deepika even went ahead and tattooed his initials on her nape. The relationship ended on a very bad note owing to different reasons. Apparently, Ranbir’s mother, Neetu Kapoor, was not very fond of Deepika and that was one of the reasons to call the relationship off. But the couple separated mostly because Ranbir cheated on Deepika which he later accepted. Deepika took the separation very badly and went through depression for some time as she describes it as the lowest point in her life.
5. Katrina Kaif
There was talk that Katrina was the woman with whom he cheated on Deepika. Ranbir and Katrina got close on the sets of Ajab Prem ki Gajab Kahani. Both of them were out of serious relationships and probably found solace in each other’s company. Katrina had recently broken up with Salman Khan. Probably Ranbir’s most serious relationship, they lasted for a good long 6 years. They dated for a few years post which they moved in together. There were rumours of a wedding being planned in 2015. Meanwhile, Deepika had made peace with her past and maintained excellent professional relationships with Ranbir. The two even worked together on 2 films post their break up and some say this did not go down well with Katrina. This was one of the reasons for tension between the couple and eventually they parted ways.
6. Nargis Fakhri
Nargis and Ranbir acted in Rockstar and were rumoured to be dating around the same time. Although the relationship did not materialise, Ranbir still remains special for Nargis. Who knows if this was a real thing or just a stunt to promote the movie!
7. Alia Bhatt
After a long time, Ranbir was in news for being in a relationship. Rumour began when he walked into ex, Sonam Kapoor’s wedding reception along with Alia Bhatt. Soon enough he went public with their relationship and called it new and exciting. The couple is currently working together on the film Brahmastra.
