The afro-haired cutie turned suave gentleman, Aditya Roy Kapur turns 28 today!
Known as 'Roy Kapur’ to most friends, football dribbling Aditya grew up in Mumbai, graduating from St. Xavier's College.
Towering at six foot two, Aditya comes from a very Bollywood inclined family. He is the younger brother of Siddharth Roy Kapur and Kunal Roy Kapur. His sister-in-law is the gorgeous Vidya Balan.
Despite his background, Aditya claims that he "had no burning ambition to become an actor". Quite happy with landing a VJ-ing job with Channel V, he kept at it until he was asked to audition for 2009's musical - 'London Dreams'.
While he may have made his film debut with 'London Dreams', it was his next film 'Action Replayy' (2010) alongside Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai, and Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Guzaarish' that got him noticed.
Instant fame, however, came with this year's 'Aashiqui 2' opposite fellow newcomer Shraddha Kapoor.
This year also saw the release of his next big film - 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani'. Declared a super-hit, he starred alongside Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone, Kalki Koechlin in the film.
Besides his obvious good looks and impeccable sense of style, its Aditya's umpteen hair styles that have garnered most attention!
It is said that Aditya's superb sense of humour is what drew Channel V to hire him as a VJ.
His apparent funny bone may also explain why he's considered to be such a ladies man!
But if you have been paying attention to Bollywood gossip these days, you'll know that Aditya has only eyes for a certain Ms. Shraddha Kapoor.
His upcoming films include 'Assi Nabey Poore Sau', 'Dawaat-E-Ishq' and 'Fitoor'.
With all his sudden success, Adiya is not one to splurge unwisely.
The young actor recently invested in a new house and a pair of fancy wheels.
Seemingly unaffected by all the media frenzy that he was suddenly showered with, the scruffy young star is already being featured on almost all most eligible bachelor lists.
Here is wishing 'Roy Kapur' a very happy birthday!
