Birthday Special: Gautami Kapoor picks Ram Kapoor’s best roles till date

EXCLUSIVE: The versatile actor, who turns 41 today, is a big name in both television and movies

Born on September 1, 1973, Ram Kapoor is known for his versatile acting, humour and spontaneity. He has done over 18 TV shows and 16 movies. While we have our personal favourites among all the roles he did, we caught up with his wife, Gautami Kapoor to know what her personal favourites were. Read on to find out…

Ghar Ek Mandir: The daily soap brought the actor in the limelight. Of course, this was also the first show that Ram and Gautami worked together.

Kasamh Se: Jai Walia – the character played by Ram almost became synonymous to him. It was the first time that audience had accepted an obese actor as the hero. He was paired opposite Prachi Desai – who was barely out of her teens then, but their chemistry was a big hit.

Bade Acche Lagte Hain: This mature adult love story was an immediate hit as it started. BALH was the first to show a consummation scene so explicitly. It was a cute and adorable love story, which lasted for over two years.

Udaan: Ram plays the character of Jimmy in the movie – who is a well-wisher of Ronit Roy and Rajat Barmecha. It was probably the only positive character in the movie and Ram received a lot of accolades for his performance in it.

Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi: Ram played the character of Arun Mehta in this Sudhir Mishra movie. Gautami says, “It was a very small role, but Ram had done a brilliant job in it and I loved it.”

Student of the Year: Ram played father to Varun Dhawan in this Karan Johar movie. Incidentally this is the first time that Ram and Gautami acted together in a film.
