Ranbir Kapoor claims that his family celebrated his Class 10th grade grade of 56%: “My grandfather failed in sixth grade, and my father in eighth”


Dolly Singh, a content producer and influencer, recently uploaded a video of Ranbir Kapoor in her renowned comic skit Raju Ki Mummy in partnership with Yash Raj Films. Singh plays the titular “Raju ki mummy,” or Raju’s mother, a middle-class Indian housewife with a nasal voice, in the eight-minute sketch, in which she interviews Kapoor about his upcoming movie Shamshera.

In the video, Singh approaches a number of issues, including the fact that Shamshera marks Ranbir Kapoor’s comeback to the big screen after a four-year absence, with rip-roaring humour. Kapoor’s latest appearance was in Sanju, the Sanjay Dutt biography directed by Rajkumar Hirani. In this video, Kapoor, who frequently used tongue-in-cheek humour and clever one-liners, remarked on how he had spent the previous four years reading books, watching movies, getting married, and learning how to brew tea. He said that he was feeling just the right amount of nervous about playing both a parent and a son in his upcoming movie. In addition, Singh made fun of the actor’s numerous female followers who had grown weary of waiting for his comeback to the big screen.

In the video, Singh also addressed Kapoor’s relationship with Alia Bhatt, congratulating him on it and demanding that he promise to have her over for tea as soon as Alia left. Along with Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan, Alia had been away in London filming for her upcoming Hollywood production Heart of Stone.

Two further portions were included in the video, one in which Kapoor had to recite some of his most famous quotes and the other in which he had to react to inquiries about “regular” individuals. Kapoor delivered his already-famous punchline from Shamshera before effortlessly reciting memorable lines from Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. As a joke on his hugely praised performance in the Anurag Basu musical comedy, Singh promised to give Kapoor a hamper of his favourite barfi sweets and kaju-katli in exchange for his participation in the same game. In the interview that followed, Kapoor also answered questions regarding his caffeine addiction, his subpar board exam scores, and his journey from being an academically underachieving student to becoming a successful professional. He claimed that his family was pleased with his Class 10 grade of 56% because he is the most educated male in his family. And he referred to himself as a “weak pupil.”

Ranbir had previously stated in an interview with PTI, “My mum used to come to my school when the results were announced. I constantly apologised and promised to try more, get good grades, and pass every subject. Mom used to say that she would let dad know if she noticed a red line on my report card. Because I was so afraid of him, I used to cry.

He continued by mentioning the dismal academic performance of the Kapoor family. My family’s heritage isn’t all that remarkable. My grandfather failed sixth grade, my uncle ninth grade, and my father eighth grade. In actuality, I am my family’s most educated member. According to the interview, he had said of his father Rishi Kapoor and grandfather Raj Kapoor, “I scored 56% in my 10th boards and my best of five percentages was 60%.

Fans all around the world reacted enthusiastically to the video and praised Kapoor’s vivacity in using self-deprecating humour to promote Shamshera. The next film could be about Raju and his board results, a fan suggested in a comment on the video. Another admirer praised the video for its subtly humorous usage of scatology.

On July 22, Ranbir will make his comeback to the big screen after a four-year absence in the movie Shamshera, which will feature Kapoor in a dual role opposite Vaani Kapoor and Sanjay Dutt.
