This is easy to figure out but we doubt you ever bothered finding it out, but Ranbir was born on a Tuesday in Mumbai to one of the cutest, and most romantic film pairs in the Hindi movie industry, Neetu and Rishi Kapoor. He shares his birthday with the legendary Lata Mangeshkar and Yash Chopra. He was christened Ranbir by his granduncle Shammi Kapoor who thought of using the first name of Raj Kapoor, Ranbir for his grandson. On his birth, Raj Kapoor was sent a letter by his fan welcoming the birth of another actor into the family. Ranbir is the second child of Rishi and Neetu Kapoor. The romantic pair of the seventies tied the knot on January 25, 1980 and were blessed with two children, Riddhima and Ranbir. While Neetu Kapoor dotes on her son and calls him ‘The Complete Man’, Rishi is closer to his daughter, though in his own words, he loves his dogs more. Ranbir’s parents affectionately call him baba.
