My father failed in 8th grade, my uncle in 9th: Ranbir Kapoor


Ranbir Kapoor is a talented actor but if you think that he was equally good at studies then you are totally wrong. Ranbir Kapoor while speaking to media revealed about his family’s academic record and said that he is the most educated member in his family.

The actor said as a kid, he was so bad in studies that his mother, Neetu Kapoor, used to threaten him about complaining to his father. He added that he was then very scared of his father and every time promised to his mom to score good marks in exam.

"My mother used to come to my school when the results were declared. I would always apologise and say 'I'll work harder, get good marks and won't fail in any subjects'. Mom would say if she saw a red line in my report card, she would tell dad. I used to cry because I was very scared of him," Ranbir told reporters.

"Good thing is back then there was no Twitter. Otherwise I don't know what he (Rishi) would've written," Ranbir said at a special 'Jagga Jasoos' event during which he interacted with school children.

The 'Tamasha' star said he is the most educated member in his family.

"My family's history isn't that good. My father failed in 8th grade, my uncle in 9th and my grandfather in 6th. I am actually the most educated member in my family. I got 56 per cent in my 10th boards and my best of five percentage was 60."

On the work front, Ranbir Kapoor is gearing up for the release of 'Jagga Jasoos' slated for July 14th release.
