Jagjit Singh Bhavnani – father
Ranveer’s father, Jagjit Singh Bhavnani is a prosperous Real Estate businessman from Bandra. His name was on everyone’s lips during an untried Ranveer’s debut into Bollywood; the buzz was that his father had paid a stupendous 10 crores rupees to facilitate his son’s movie. Though, Ranveer had refuted the rumours saying that his father had been going through a lean financial phase during that time.,, there weren’t too many takers for his side.. Ranveer’s father has always been encouraging of his extrovert son’s love for performing and perhaps that’s how the story started.
Anju Bhavnani – Mother
Ranveer’s mother is a homemaker. She keeps a low profile and isn’t seen much in Bollywood-dos, though she made an exception at one of the Celebrity interview shows where it was easy to see the lovely bond between the two. Not much is known about her in the media, but what can be deduced is that as a parent, she has been supportive of Ranveer’s whacky ways.
Ritika Bhavnani – Sister
Ranveer is very fond of his elder sister and shares many fond memories of their childhood with her. He once recollected in an interview about their celebrating Raksha Bandhan, each year in their prayer room. According to him, Ritika was always careful about the choice of rakhi for him; she would choose one that looked good on him and whose colours didn’t bleed as Ranveer would wear the rakhi till it wore off. She would also choose the chocolates kept In the Rakhi thali; in fact, Ranveer credits his sister for his getting a sweet tooth as she would buy him chocolates almost everyday when they were young. Ranveer, in turn, is particular about touching his elder sister’s feet after she ties him the rakhi, even though it embarrasses her.
Sonam Kapoor – Cousin
The Uber Stylish actress, Sonam Kapoor is Ranveer’s second cousin from his father and her mother’s side. Their respective parents are first cousins; his grandfather is Sonam Kapoor’s maternal grandmother’ brother, which makes the actors second cousins. The cousins aren’t particularly close and met each other only during their birthdays. Sonam is of course, more famous for being the daughter of the evergreen actor, Anil Kapoor who continues to keep himself relevant to the present times.
She was born on the 9th of June, 1985 to actor Anil Kapoor and his interior decorator wife, Sunita Kapoor. Sonam was an overweight young girl when she first assisted director for his acclaimed 2005 film Black. But, her inherent spark was noticed by the director, who then gave her the main female lead in his 2007 film Saawariya opposite another debutant Ranbir Kapoor. Despite, the commercial failure of her first film, she got to act in Rakesysh Omprakash Mehra’s 2009 film Delhi-6. She achieved commercial success with her next film in 2010, I Hate Luv Storys opposite Imran Khan. 2013 was a good year for her as she was the female lead in two commercial as well as critically acclaimed films, Raanjhanaa and Bhaag Milkha Bhaag.
Rhea_Kapoor – Cousin
Producer and savvy fashion designer, Rhea Kapoor is Anil Kapoor’s second child, making her Sonam Kapoor’s younger sister and Ranveer’s cousin. These two cousins don’t meet much and did so when they were younger and during their birthdays.
She was born on the 5th of March, 1987 in Chembur, Mumbai. Besides, sister actress Sonam Kapoor and second cousin, Ranveer, she can boast of many Bollywood luminaries and personalities in her family tree. Filmmaker Surinder Kapoor is her grandfather, Producer Boney Kapoor is her uncle and so is actor Sanjay Kapoor, actress Sridevi is her aunt and young actor, Arjun and Anshula Kapoor are her first cousins.
This young lady had different plans than the other average Bollywood kid; Rhea Kapoor made her debut into Bollywood as the Assistant director for the 2009 film Wake Up Sid. She turned producer for her sister’s film Aisha, in 2010. Rhea styled Sonam Kapoor’s clothes for the same movie as well as for the 2012 film Players.
Harshvardhan Kapoor – Cousin
Harshvardhan Kapoor is the youngest of the three Kapoor siblings consisting of his two elder sisters Sonam and Rhea Kapoor. The twenty one year old is interested in screenplay writing and cinematography. His good looks and Bollywood lineage has made it almost inevitable that he too, join the ranks of actors. Renowned director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra has already approached him to play the lead role for his next film Mirza Ghalib as soon as he finishes his stint as an assistant director for Anurag Kashyap’s much awaited film Bombay Velvet.
Anil Kapoor – Uncle
Actor Anil Kapoor was born on the 24th of December, 1956. He has been in the movies for over three decades and has established himself as an actor of note not only in India, but also in Hollywood. He has shown his forte as an actor in the movies and small screen, as well as producer for the acclaimed film, Gandhi, My Father.
Once the contender for the top slot as Bollywood’s Numero Uno hero, Anil Kapoor continues to be relevant in the present times and has kept pace with the fast changing scenario in movies and television.
Sunita Kapoor – Aunt
Actor Anil Kapoor married his model wife, Sunita Kapoor in 1984. Sunita has been an admirable partner for Anil Kapoor. She has carved out her own success story in the interior designing and jewellery designing world, even while being a support to her husband and mother to her two daughters and son. Despite, her family being so deeply entrenched in Bollywood, she has kept a low profile and has hardly been accessible to the tabloid press, except by being photographed along with her husband or Bollywood linked friends.
The actor is also often searched online as Ranir Singh, or Ranbir Singh online by those who get his name wrong or confuse his name with actor Ranbir Kapoor.
