Aditya Roy Kapur (born 16 November 1985) is an Indian film actor who works in Hindi films. He is the younger brother of actors Siddharth Roy Kapur and Kunaal Roy Kapur.

Early life and background

Kapur was born in Mumbai on 16 November 1985 to a Punjabi Hindu father, Kumud Roy Kapur, and a Jewish mother Salome Aaron. His grandfather, Raghupat Roy Kapur, was a film producer. Kapur is the youngest of the three siblings- his eldest brother, Siddharth Roy Kapur, was the chief executive officer of UTV Motion Pictures and is married to the actress, Vidya Balan. His second elder brother, Kunaal Roy Kapur, is also an actor.

His maternal grandparents, Sam and Ruby Aaron, were qualified dance teachers who introduced the Sama dance to India. He did his schooling from G. D. Somani Memorial School, in Cuffe Parade, Mumbai, where all his siblings studied and his mother directed school plays. Kapoor enrolled in St. Xavier's in Class XI, but failed. He had to enroll in St. Andrew's College to avoid losing a year. Subsequently, he graduated from St. Xavier's College, affiliated to the University of Mumbai.

Kapur is not a trained actor, though he has taken dance lessons and also diction classes to improve his Hindi accent. According to him he "had no burning ambition to become an actor," and was content being a VJ, until he was called to audition for London Dreams. During his school years, he wanted to be a cricketer but he quit cricket coaching classes after sixth standard.

VJ career

Kapur started his career as a VJ on music channel Channel V India at the age of 19, where his comic timing and "unique style of hosting" made him a hit. He did a show "Pakao" for Channel V, and also hosted the hugely popular, 'India's hottest' show with VJ, Bruna Abdullah. He exited the show in 2008.
