Ranbir, whose great-grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor, grandfather Raj Kapoor, father Rishi Kapoor, and several other family members were actors, revealed that he was in fact the first boy in his family to pass the 10th exams. The actor recalled that he was weak in his studies.
In a recent promotional video for shamshera, Ranbir had a chat with Instagram influencer Dolly Singh’s character ‘Raju ki mummy’, who asked him if he took math or science as a subject after passing his 10th exam. When Ranbir revealed that he was taking bills, Dolly asked him if he was weak in his studies, and the actor replied, “Bahot Kamjor tha (I was very weak).”
When asked how much he scored in his 10th exams, he answered 53.4 percent. He said: “When my results came, my family was so happy that they threw a big party for me. They had no expectations. I am the first boy in my family to pass his 10th exam.” As Dolly said the Kapoor family secret is weak in studies and spectacular in acting, Ranbir said, “I don’t know, but thanks.”
Earlier in an interview in PTI in 2017, Ranbir had called himself the most educated member of his family. He had said, ‘My family history isn’t that good. My father dropped in 8th grade, my uncle in 9th and my grandfather in 6th grade. I am actually the most educated member of my family.” After graduating from school, Ranbir took acting and film classes abroad before making his Bollywood debut in 2007.
Ranbir will next be seen in Shamshera, which also stars Sanjay Dutt and Vaani Kapoor. The landmark film will be released in theaters on July 22 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
