Aditya Roy Kapur has time and again re-emerged as the Bollywood sweetheart. Be it his performance as the passionate musician & lover in Aashiqui 2 or the ultimate Bro in Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani, Adi has amassed quite a fan following! But this fan following is not new to the actor who started off as a Channel V video jockey! Did you know that?
Well, here are some interesting facts about this Cool Kapur boy that you probably didn’t know!
If you think Aditya Roy Kapur has many Bollywood connections, you’re not wrong. He is the youngest of the three brothers - Siddharth Roy Kapur, who is a producer and Kunaal Roy Kapur who is an actor. Thanks to Sid Roy Kapur, Vidya Balan is his sister-in-law.
The bhabhi-devar are often spotted having fun banters on social media.
The acting was not Aditya’s direct inclination. Like most Mumbai boys who’ve grown watching Sachin Tendulkar create history, Adi too grew up wanting to be a cricketer. He dedicated quite a lot of time in his early years on the field.
ARK started his career as a VJ on Channel V with the show ‘Pakao’ and then ‘India’s Hottest Show’ with Bruna Abdullah till 2008. He was particularly famous for his unique style of hosting and sense of humor (which is still intact).
The musical blockbuster Aashiqui 2 alongside Shraddha Kapoor was Aditya Roy Kapur’s first major hit.
However, his debut film was the 2009 Diwali release London Dreams with Salman Khan, Ajay Devgn, and Asin which was followed by the Akshay Kumar- Aishwarya Rai starrer Action Replayy.
Aditya learned to play guitar for his character of a musician, Rahul, for Aashiqui 2. Even in real life Adi is quite fond of music and has been heard singing and playing the guitar on set, during promotions and talk shows.
ARK’s list of dream directors includes - Dibakar Banerjee, Vikramaditya Motwane and Vishal Bharadwaj.
Aditya can be easily regarded as one of the least vain actors in the industry and is often spotted by the paparazzi in casuals around Mumbai, like a typical Bandra boy.
Interestingly this is what makes Adi Roy Kapur an absolute favorite irrespective of the success and failures of his films.
