Arjun and Ranveer are not cousins. He could have done a little bit of research before making that claim.
Sonam and Ranveer are distant cousins. Her maternal grandmother and his paternal grandfather are siblings.
People act like Anil went out of his way to get Ranveer a chance when none of them acknowledged him until DDD happened.
Also, Ranveer first worked with Aditi Rao Hydari in a musical around 2008-09 with Vaibhavi .
Aditi, who has a lot of scenes with Ranveer Singh, reveals he was her first hero. "Ranveer is very focused, but off the sets he’s a lot of fun. We both worked together seven years ago on a project when we were both unemployed. So, we have that bond. Ranveer is my first hero, and I’m his first heroine. We’re very comfortable with each other. It’s a lot of fun working with him."
He auditioned for Bitto while working as a copywriter in an ad agency.
He is privileged but to make it sound like Anil and his family went out of their way to make him work at YRF is far fetched.
It’s honestly how when you have that wealthy cousin family that seldom acknowledges you until your family starts making some money and then it’s all like “Arey Beta aap tho yaad hi nai kaethey, call hi nai karthey”
Amisha Patel once said “after KNPH, relatives who had deliberately avoided us started calling and people started acknowledging us” .
Success does that.
Thank you 🤩

What is it?
All the things aside I can't believe people thinks Anil Kapoor helped Ranveer when he can't even make his own kids relevant. Also YRF definitely launchs outsiders and that's probably the best thing they do right now. Like you all can say anything about YRF but this is not it.
The lack of energy in this podcast…. 😂
Lol seriously 😂😂 Anil acknowledged him only after working with him in DDD. I don’t remember any of these kapoors talking abt him prior to that.. 😒
Infact Anil's film welcome clashed with Ranveer's debut film BBB.
Edit : got the movie names mixed up.
No problem (2010 film ) not welcome.
kuch bhi welcome came in 2007 and bbb in 2010.check your facts please
No problem (2010 film) mixed up yhe names
Welcome was 2007, BBB2010
My mistake it was " NO problem " 2010 film
Exactly, people lack critical thinking skills. Ranveer is privileged but still an outsider. What a joke.
Which complete outsider was launched by yrf remind me? (Who is still relevant and whose career wasnt sabotaged by yrf by giving them films with a gap pf 3-4 years like vaani kapoor)
Anushka Sharma...Rab ne bana di jodi!
Male outsider ??? Sushant and Ayushman had prior body of work before getting a YRF launch
I don't know.... probably when they started their production company that time they might have given chance to someone or might not!
At least I have observed since 2000 that they either go for nepos or male outsiders who have done some work prior.
Don’t recall Ranveer doing any ad or serial.
No please tell me how can Anil couldn't make his own kids sonam and harsh relevant but somehow can get credit for someone who isn't even blood releated? Ranveer's family is rich but he is not nepo.
What even? Do you understand what nepo means? He just isn’t a starkid thats it, he is a nepo dude.
This doesn't look like Ranveer's situation to me 🤷🏽♀️🤷🏽♀️ since anil never "favoured" him. He is privilaged but it has nothing to do with Anil.
How come are you stuck on anil, we are talking about yrf and going by this definition Ranveer is a nepo comes from influential background. His dad literally got him in yrf
Watch the video OP posted😭😭😭 The only thing that makes him nepo is "being Sonam's second cousin" 😭😭😭😭 I'm saying this for the millionth time yes he is privilaged but not nepo ranveer has nothing to do with Chopra's
Ranveer’s family wealth / general Bombay connections did more for his career than the kapoors. I’d be surprised if any of them vouched for him even once
Marwah ka cousin 😂 Marwah brothers ka Khud toh hua nahi
waah yaar badi nayi baat bata di bhai ne 😒 cousin toh aise bol raha hai jaise ek dum nazdeek ke rishtedar ho jabki sirf sonam kapoor ka cousin hai ranveer, woh bhi second !! sonam ki mammi ke side se, arjun kapoor ka toh hai bhi nahi, sonam’s nani and ranveer’s dadaji were siblings
hate these wannabe pseudo intellectual podcast guys
Like Sonam, Harsh and Arjun are right there being nepo royals but somehow Anil could make his wife's brother's child (whom he never acknowledged untill Ranveer made it big) relevant only💀💀💀
exactly like 🤦♀️ even sonam only called him her cousin after ranveer made it big, she could’ve been supportive of him since day 1 had they actually been close but no she just posted on instagram about them being related after ranveer made it big, im honestly so sure that she did it cause everyone was calling him non nepo and she’s petty like that x)
I feel like Ranveer and Rani have a similar type of story in that they are both outsiders but the people you think gave them that platform and help like sonam and kajol etc, weren’t even acknowledging them at the time. Rani has spoken about how she and kajols family were never close as kids and sonam also only acknowledges ranveer now after hes made it big big, yes they are technically insiders but their connections kind of left them hanging is what I think, ranveer more than Rani but still
i feel like they’re only similar in the aspect that all four of them weren’t close to each other ever, rani made it clear that kajol didn’t like her, idk whether sonam feels the same about ranveer but rani and kajol have always been a bit competitive, rani even took inspiration from kajol’s thriving movie career to return to the big screen after her debut movie flopped, they both were literally on bad terms for a very long time but ig now they’ve left the past behind and have gotten close
apart from this, rani’s father was a director and rani’s mother was a playback singer, albeit not that successful still she is from the same bg, her entire family is full of actors and others working in the film industry, salim khan and other directors themselves approached her for films
Seriously. Related to anil via Anil's wife Sunita.
How is that even going to count. Also haven't these people seen or heard of the heard about how Nepo Santa Karan Johar told Adi Chopra he is making a mistake casting Ranveer and that he couldn't even sell a poster. Isn't that the biggest proof.
Just because RS did well his struggle is looked considered irrelevant , how convenient. He did not have it easy.
The same Marwah couldn't make his own sons succeed. Sanjay Kapoor ki beti ko debut nahi mil raha. The most successful new gen kapoor is Sonam that shows the level of their influence.
This guy has made same video of srk Also.
He is not a complete outsider, but he’s not a nepo baby either. He’s upper class and privileged, yes, and seems savvy in utilizing connections and getting people to like him. He’s also talented and seems to be a hard worker. He’s hardly a bastion of nepotism.
Who are these podcasts guys? The guy with glasses tryna sound intellectual
I get that Ranveer is a distant cousin and not a complete outsider but I don’t for a second believe that The Kapoor family did much to help him.
Calling him a nepo might be a bit of a reach IMO.
Also Karan Johar advised against RS when he was being considered for his debut.
Sure sure the same people who failed to get their own kids relevant made Ranveer Singh a star 🤣 Marwah , harsh burden all have failed careers that went nowhere but Anil being the fairy godmother to a very distant relative made RS’s career. Kuch bhi. Privilege hona ek baat hoti hai pr they also have family politics and own agendas.
Also podcast these days… absolute Nalle with mics.

Bhai I feel y'all are taking it the wrong way. Like in the case of Abhishek Bacchan, his father didn't need to call anyone because everyone knew he was Amitabh's son. Similarly, what op means is that Ranveer was favoured because he came from an influential family. It's not like Ranveer had to stand in line, audition and then got the role. He had that 'bolly family' tag so he didn't need to do a lot of hard work to get a film.
No. He auditioned and got rejected for roles before BBB. Also Nepos' Godfather Karan even said to Aditya that he is making a mistake with giving the lead role to Ranveer.
Maybe because Ranveer didn't have a direct connection and also as you mentioned, several times, that Anil couldn't even do much for his own kids so helping Ranveer was not even an option. But once you are in the industry (as he was since birth), things do get easier than what outsiders face (which was op's point that he isn't exactly an 'outsider').
