Infobox removal[edit]

Some users are deleting the infobox of Ranbir Kapoor. According to the rules for celebrity articles in Wikipedia, the infobox should be there. Keep it noted admins that the infobox stays there securely. Itz arka (talk) 19:05, 12 October 2014 (UTC)


Since Kapoor is a Punjabi tribe that is why an edit is requested to include Ranbir kapoor written in Punjabi along with english lead. Vishesgirl (talk) 16:03, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

We generally do not add the ethnicity of a person to the opening sentence unless it is relevant to the person's notability. --NeilN talk to me 16:36, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

He has married Katrina Kaif. I have the proof & would like to add this truth to this page. (talk) 05:14, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Please provide a link to a reliable source. --NeilN talk to me 05:23, 26 November 2014 (UTC)
Hahaha. Show us this reliably published "truth", and it will be added to the page. -- KRIMUK90  05:24, 26 November 2014 (UTC)

Despite his recent financial failures, he still continues to be the highest paid and most-in demand actor in the Bollywood Film industry. (talk) 08:47, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Not done, this kind of request specifically requires a reliable source and notability. —Indian:BIO [ ChitChat ] 08:48, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Shouldn't we add Ae Dil Hai Mushkil to his filmography? After all, filming has started.-- Semanti Paul (talk) 14:39, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

Hi Krimuk90, welcome back to Wikipedia!! :) Just a question, is there any particular reason why you changed back the infobox image of this article? I had put up a recent picture, which was properly licensed and the quality is also good. It has been there for quite some time, and no one objected to it. So, just curious. And I think Tamasha should be mentioned in the lead because his performance was praised and he received nominations at some award ceremonies including Filmfare (though I don't care for any of them lol). Basically, because it is a noteworthy movie in his filmography. Waiting for your feedback. - Semanti Paul (talk) 06:17, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Hi Semanti, thank you. Well, I don't think a picture of him frowning in the infobox is such a good idea. The YJHD picture is also very recent and he looks much better in it IMO. As for Tamasha, we may add it but the film really isn't one of his notable ones, either critically or commercially. As for the Filmfare nomination, it's safe to say that he is following the SRK-Kajol (who were both nominated for Dilwale) route of garnering nominations solely for his star power. --Krimuk|90 (talk) 06:58, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Fair enough on the infobox picture. However, you might look at his Wikimedia page which I have been developing. Here is the link: It has pictures of him upto this year and if there's something we both like that is as recent as last year, we might consider putting it. Re: Tamasha, I did say I didn't care for Filmfare nominations. I wanted to add it because among his string of commercial failures for two years, this has been the standalone film where he received almost unanimous praise for his acting. It was an average film otherwise, but his performance stood out, and I hope you'll agree. Maybe we could phrase it like this: "However, he followed it by starring in a series of films that under-performed at the box office, among which the romantic drama Tamasha earned him critical acclaim."- Semanti Paul (talk) 07:43, 30 January 2016 (UTC)
Alright. Added something to that effect. :) As for the picture, I still prefer the current one more than the other options. Krimuk|90 (talk) 15:28, 30 January 2016 (UTC)

Main lead section[edit]

On this article he has mentioned as "he has become one of most popular and highest paid actor of Indian Cinema" statement unsourced. Statements like those should be sourced to prove that he is popular and highest paid actor. So many Bollywood actors and actresses articles are exactly like this. Or there is any rule that there is no need for sources in main lead? Any help and opinions... thanks Ambeinghari (talk) 15:23, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

Correction to be made regarding Ranbir Kapoor's film - Tamasha[edit]

Corrections have to be made regarding his film Tamasha. The film was initially declared a flop. But after December 2015, as per Indian Box Office, The film became 10th Highest Grossing Indian film Worldwide of 2015 with total lifetime earnings of ₹ 136.63 crores (US $20 million) which is a Box office Hit Indian film. It means Tamasha became another turning point in Ranbir Kapoor's fallen career even before ADHM. Please make the correction in his page.

Because... budget. --Krimuk2.0 (talk) 13:14, 4 February 2017 (UTC)

Budget was of 60 crores, film received 136.63 crores which is more than double amount of production, why isnt it profitable film? DarpSinghh (talk) 06:05, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

That's incorrect. BOI labels it a flop and we'll call it such. --Krimuk2.0 (talk) 06:16, 5 February 2017 (UTC)

BOI's front page of the film has error..... As per the general rule, any film crossing 100 crores earning is a Box Office HIT, which it is just like Piku DarpSinghh (talk) 05:31, 8 February 2017 (UTC)

That's considered WP:OR - substituting your views and judgements rather than using that from reliable sources. Wikipedia, especially on a judgement call like this where we need to say WHO called a film a hit or flop, needs to attribute the claim - COI calls the film a flop/hit.
