Ranbir Kapoor's first crush, which is known to a few people, was actor Imran Khan's wife Avantika Malik. "Rockstar" actor was deeply in love with the actor of the then popular serial "Just Mohabbat" where Avantika worked as a child artist.

It is said that Ranbir used to visit the sets of the serial every day to meet his teenage crush. As "Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na" actor's wife was not that interested in the Kapoor boy, they parted ways and Avantika got married to Imran.

2. Sonam Kapoor

The "Bewakoofiyaan" actor has been in a lot of controversies with Ranbir kapoor and their relationship since "Saawariya." They started their career together and before being casted as actors, they both were assistant directors in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's "Black."

The duo has never admitted being in relationship openly and still Sonam considers Ranbir as a good friend in front of the media.

The B-town heartthrob had a huge crush on designer Nandita Mahtani since childhood and hence was dating her for a while. The interesting factor about the Kapoor lad's girlfriend was that she was ex-wife of Sanjay Kapoor, who is Ranbir's cousin Karisma Kapoor's husband. But the couple parted ways as the "Barfi" actor couldn't handle the 10-year age gap between them.

4. Deepika Padukone

The "Ramleela" actor was the first long-lasting girlfriend of Ranbir Kapoor. They dated for nearly two years (2007-09). The star couple was open about their relationship and was loved by their fans.

There were many theories made including that Neetu Kapoor, Ranbir's mother, didn't like the relationship of "Bachna Ae Haseeno" couple and also the split was due to the Kapoor boy's flirtatious nature. After the break-up also, they remain friends and has moved on in their individual lives. They did "Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani" after their split and now again the duo is coming with Imtiaz Ali's "Tamasha."
