Ranbir Kapoor is one of the most prolific actors of the recent times. Do you know how he started his journey in B-Town? Read on…
Ranbir Kapoor is definitely one of the finest we have in the industry. It has been 12 years since he debuted with Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Saanwariya and rest was history! He even won the black lady for his first film under the ‘Best Debut (Male)’ category. But do you know what got him started?
Ranbir, before debuting in SLB’s film, kept visiting the prolific director’s office again and again to meet him and ask for work while Bhansali was unaware of all this happening. RK visited his office numerous times to meet him but all in vain as he used to wait outside his office and leave. As Bhansali had no clue of his coming at his office, Ranbir continued his quest for the same till one day, when he spotted Kapoor outside his office and called him inside.

Well, it has been 12 years since that day and there has been no stopping for the actor who is now at the top of his game.
