Hey Rob,
How tall do you think Vicky Kaushal is?He claims that he is 6'2" tall,but i feel that he is around 6'1.25" or maybe a solid 6'1" with Ranbir Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan.

Solid 6ft 1 range seems believable
Unk said on 17/Sep/19
Not a solid 6 footer at all. More of like 5’10 1/2 or 5’11
Zaid said on 17/Sep/19
Looks 5’10 1/2 or 5’11. Surrounded by short people that’s why looks taller than this
Kuldeep said on 30/Aug/19
This is Hilarious everyone knows google downgrades the height about 2 to 3 inches. Google says ayushmaan khurrana is only 5.6 which is hilarious he is one of the actors who don't lie about their height he is 5 feet 9 inches tall have met him he was an inch taller than me have also met Ranbir kapoor trust me he is at least 6 feet tall most of the people commenting here haven't met him orseen him in person he is a really tall guy and in fact he appears taller than 6 feet
Stanger danger said on 26/Apr/19

@Visit (26/Jan/19) : Sanju will turn 60 in literally few months, you tend to lose 1-2 inches at this age or so, and Ranbir is still not 40... personally I'd put Ranbir around the 5'10'' mark, I watched many of his movies and never appeared to me to be any taller.
Visit said on 26/Jan/19
In an interview raju sir confirmed that he's taller than sanjay dutt by half an inch....but i don't understand the jaelous people..

Ranbir is taller than Hrithik,John(who claim to be about 6 feet).Aditya(6'2),Arjun(6'1),Vicky(6'2),and Siddharth(6'1)are some of the contemporaries taller than RK.
R.A. said on 18/Jan/19
Looking at Anas (9/Nov/18) evidences, what do you think about dowgrading him to 5'10'', Rob ?
Editor Rob
I wouldn't rule the possibility out.
Observe said on 17/Dec/18
Virat, Dhoni and Ranveer are the same height, a solid 5.7, which always made Deepikas claims of being 5.9 laughable. She is atleast an inch and a half shorter than Ranveer and Dhoni. As for Ranbir he is 5.10, not more.
Anas said on 9/Nov/18
Ranbir Kapoor Real Height is 5'10
MS Dhoni is 5'7
John Abraham is 5'11
Abhishek Bachan is 6'1
Virat Kohli is also 5'7

Use to be listed 5’7” everywhere, but he claimed to be 5’10”.
I reckon he’s more of a Very Solid/Strong 5’8” range guy.

What’s your thought on him?
Editor Rob
There is a more than decent chance he's over 5ft 7.

He claims 5'11" on his IMDb resume, but looks nowhere near it. He looks 0.5-1inch shorter than Hrithik and Good 2 inches shorter than Ranbir.

What do u think Rob?
Editor Rob
5ft 9-9.5 is a possibility
Anoop said on 30/Sep/18
The problem is actors used to say one inch is 2.5cm but in actual case 1inch=2.54cm
So there will be 1 inch difference in overall height
Like 172 is 5'8" but they think it is 5'9"
180 is 5'11" but they think it is 6feet
Thats why john abraham say im 183cm that is approximately 6'1"
Salman say im 174cm that is 5'9and half"

in the photo together : ranbeer 5-11 virat 5-9 abhishek 6-1 in football gear. shahid afridi 5-10 looks less coz he is stocky. ranbeer claiming 6-0.5 on red FM is that old half inch trick to give credibility to ones height claim because of its spurious exactitude .in photo ranbir 5-11 pique 6-3 difference of 4 in between them. in photo wasim akram 6-1 imran khan 5-11. wasim akrams claim of 6-3 height is bogus. inzi is definitely 6-3. trust me guys iam afan of cricket (old timers) and height freak since child hood so can judge heights realistically.

These following guys are very close to each other in height: Hrithik, Akshay, Ranbeer and Abraham.
Obviously, Hrithik is the shorter one. I think Ranbeer and Abraham has an edge over Akshay. These three guys are close to 6 feet but not quite.
Still a good height in India. Only 10% of Indian people achieve a height of 182 cm or above. Source: Indian Academy of Paedriatics.

I swear that Virat is maximum 5'8 bcz he looks average and 5'9 in asia looks tall just like as shahid afridi(I personally met him and he is almost 5'9)
click : Click Here (virat is one inch shorter than afridi)
So , I finally conclude that Ranbir Kapoor is 5'10(min) to 5'10.5(max) as the above statistics

anas virat kohli is not 5.8 he easily is 1 inch taller than anuskha sharma a strong 5.9 at least ..5ft 9.5 most of the times..which makes ranbir easily over 5ft 11.5.. 6 ft most of the time

Kohli never claimed 5’11”, he’s listed at 175 cm but he’s actually 174 cm (5’8.5”)
That being said Anushka is 173 cm (5’8”) and Ranbir is barely an inch taller to her in ADHM, brings his height in the 175-176 cm range (5’9”)

No more from 5.10
Rohit kumar said on 9/Apr/18
Rob I am 5'2".so,rob how much my top of the head will reach compare to ranbir kapoor? May be right down the chin? What is your opinion rob?
Editor Rob
If you ever met Ranbir and stood beside him, the top of your head would be above his chin, but maybe not quite at his mouth.

Guys if Ranbir is 5ft10 then how tall could be John Abraham he may be 5ft9 or 5ft9.5

Hey Rob,search on Google to find Ranbir Kapoor with Leo messi photo.i think Ranbir will be 178 cm in height.both of them wear same sporting shoes.

Virat is a 176. Ranbir is barely taller than him. I saw them in a football match once in my city.
177-178 is my guess.

Kohli claims 5'11", he is listed 5'9 on many sites. Imo, he's 176 or 177 at max.
No one said on 16/Feb/18
5 ft 11 seem perfect for him he looks no more than 6 ft....virat kohli and ranbir kapoor had few photos with similar footwear and he looks like 2 inch difference between them virat is strong 5 ft 9 guy ...6.5 Maybe the morning height
No one said on 16/Feb/18

They are of same height.
Caaq said on 6/Nov/17
Editor rob...have u seen a picture where arundhoy singh claiming 6 4 stands beside cyrus the comedian who claims 6 1 and the comedian looks a bit taller. What the hell??? These idiots stop measuring when they are 15 or they really slope the scale down on their head backward and downward and lose a couple of inches there. Have seen many idiots do that. Arundhoy frankly seems like a super strong 6 2 or a passable 6 3. And cyrus is alo around 6 3 at least.
Caaq said on 6/Nov/17
I have done a lot of thinking. I think rabir kapoor can pass as a reasonable 6 footer honestly. But if someone were to be stringent maybe 5'11.5" or so. But a 6foot claim for him isnt bad. I think in shoes with hair he would be touch 6-1 mark standing for a mug shot.

In that same token, i think karan johar understates his height evetywhere as many people do for no good reason. Seriously many people overestimate 6 feet n never give themselves credit. Karan johar would be around 6.05 inches in shoes on mug shot scale. So i think he is a comfortable 5 -11.
Amitabh now, with shoes n hair would touch about 6 2.5, so i think he is around 6-1. Abishek possibly looks .5 to 1 inch more. So could pass as 6-2, though 6 1.5 would be better.
Kunal kapoor always writes 6 2. But he is about 1.5 to 2 inches more than abhishek.he would or coud be a comfortable 6 4.
There is also a cyrus the comedian.
Boss said on 20/Oct/17
Can you plz add the height of bollywood actor zayed khan? It's a request
Boss said on 15/Oct/17
Rob are you still sure that ranbir is still 5'11.25?not more than that?
Editor Rob: I suppose you could argue that sometimes he seems near 6ft, but I am not as convinced of it.
Boss said on 13/Oct/17
Rob if ranbir is 6'0.5 is that means abhishekh is 6'3 but do you think that seems legit? 🤔
Editor Rob: I'm not sure abhi regularly looks 6ft 3, although I am sure at times he will seem very tall to people in person.
jaggu said on 6/Oct/17

Editor Rob: thanks for mentioning his claim, I will add it to the top, not that I agree of course, but it is always good to see what an actor claims he measures.

He is 5'10 barefoot I guess
Ranbir is shorter than me said on 7/Jul/17
Met ranbir up in person today. I'm exactly 5'9.5 and Ranbir was much shorter than me like about maybe an inch or .75". Ranbir's dad is 5'7 and mom 5'5 I highly doubt that he can even come close to 5'10
www said on 31/May/17
Ranbir has always looked 1.83 m to me. He always gives off a tall impression. He's a promising actor. Karan Johar's 5'8" listing on various websites can be safely assumed to be inaccurate. Karan Johar is actually more in the 1.8/1.83 m range. He never looks short next to any actor, something a true 5'8"-5'9" man will undoubtedly appear more often than he likes.
5'10' said on 8/Apr/17

Ranbir is not a cm above 178 and my evidence is the picture of messi and ranbir post training and there is no chance messi was wearing lifts he was training.Also messi is 5 foot 7 max people so no hard feeling just check my link and then give your opinions .Rob I feel mate he deserves a downgrade Click Here
heightchecker34 said on 8/Aug/16
Ranbir looks anywhere in the 5'11-5'11.5 range so this listing is correct. He is very thin and maintains a slim figure so he could figuratively claim 6'0 and get away with it. Great actor, definite ladies man, and not to mention his family lineage, I believe he is living up to their name!
Tony Stork said on 5/Aug/16
@Editor Rob,

How much do u think he weighs and what's his Head Size? 10 inch?
Editor Rob: somewhere between 9.5-9.75 probably, he doesn't look that bulky, maybe 175 pounds.

Rahul another one, he looks same height as inzi (although inzi was wearing a cap) I heard kapil dev is 1.83 m doesn't seem so
wasay said on 11/Jul/16
Rahul I would say he can be 6'3 even Ian healy said he is the cricketer i like to come back as being 6'4 ....Click Here (see 1:55)...I would say akram can be 6'3 though 6'4 is out of question..if akram is 6'3 then abhishek is definately 189 cm making ranbir ranbir atleast 6 ft ...

Click Here (here with simi grewal (5'7) in heels)

I would say ranbir is a solid 6
Rahul said on 7/Jul/16
Wasim Akram is around 189 cms 6' 2.5". Although he has been rated 6'3" in the cricket websites

I am 188 cm, and I have met wasim bhai who was taller than me when I saw him,same difference as what amitabh is on this recent picture

Rob Wasim Akram is the second guy from left.Earlier saw a picture of ranbir and amitabh. Ranbir should be about 183/184 cm to me.Amitabh 187/188
His son 189 cm.

@Borats chicken

No, Sidharth is the same height as Hrithik i.e. 5'10.25 (178 cm).
Fez said on 18/Apr/16
5'11.5" could b a Good Compremise for Ranbir.
Kartik said on 25/Mar/16
Hey Rob, can you add Akshay Kumar...(I think he is in the 5'10.5" range)
Borats chicken said on 13/Jan/16
since hes 181cm, sidharth malhotra must be weak 183 then? they stood beside each other and sidharth looked 2 cm taller then him.
John said on 11/Jan/16
Rob,don't you think your intial listing of 180 cm for him was more accurate?
Editor Rob: everything is still a guess. Nobody is in a position to say 'that guess is accurate or innacurate unless they measured the person'.

He looked 182-183 range in movie Tamashsa
mr.rashid said on 18/Oct/15

im not sure about kk, he is listed 6'2" on some sites aswell, so i wouldnt trust imdb 4 heights.
and as for the video, u really cant compare heights when they r on the move.
regarding Ranbir's height, u should compare him to Real Madrid players like Pique, Valdes or Messi etc.
their height r almost accurate and u will get the idea y rob list him that height.

he's not much shorter than amitabh (who's 6'0.5-6'1 nowadays)
Click Here

and stacks up pretty well against Abhishek
Click Here

and their are few images where Ranbir has the edge on John Abraham (i'll try 2 find them).
next to guys like Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan, i thought he looked a strong 6 foot in all honesty.
anything under 5'11 for him is a joke and out of question.
181 is pretty much nailed 4 him IMO.
Amit said on 15/Oct/15
Have a look at 1.27-1.29min. Abhishek having at least 2.5-3 inches on ranbir.

Amit said on 15/Oct/15
Ranbir Kapoor is 5'9"-5'9.5" max. He's clearly 2 inches shorter than Kay kay menon who is 5'11'' according to imdb. Ranbir is weirdly on his toes to look as taal as Kay kay menon!

To b honest it looks like Ranbir would b Taller than John.

Ranbir Kapoor - 5'11.75"/182cm
John Abraham - 5'11.25"/181cm
Abhishek Bachchan - 6'1"/185cm

Also Deepika claims 5'8.5", but Salman thinks Ranbir is 6' or 6'1".
btw i understand a little bit of Hindi language, so im not that great at translating
but i know what they mean tho.

Yeah rob could you also add amitabhs son abjshek bachchan I think he is 6'2 but ur the king so ull know

@Arjun Korale she is illeana d Cruz a Christian Indian actress she's quite young in 20s probably5'4

Dcruz is 5'3, she had come down at a mall near to my place for promotion along with Varun Dhawan (5'8ish). Also pretty average looking in person.
John said on 16/Feb/15
Click Here
In this pic,Ranbir is looking about a half inch shorter than 5'11.25-5'11.75 John and 2.5 inches shorter than 6'1.25-6'1.75 Abishek so that makes him 5'10.75-5'11.25 at most.
heightism said on 14/Feb/15
with Amitabh Ranbir looks an inch shorter at most, since you have Amitabh at 1.85, 1.83 would be a better fit for Ranbir. How can I post a link to the image?

[Editor Rob: 181 is probably a better fit]
Rahul said on 13/Jan/15
@Rob, What's the basis of this listing? Ranvir was described as 5'10" by Vikas bhalla at zoom. He had to wear weird 2" boots to look taller than Sonam in Sawaria.
[Editor Rob: I don't think he'd look less than 5ft 11, I'd struggle to see him just 5ft 10 range.]
saik said on 11/Jan/15
Lol @Amaze
wtf dude is there some world where indian people aren't tall lol there's 1.5 billion Indians and there is an abundance of tall men and if anything most Indians are average or above average height but it is just that there a lot of below average people too since there's more than a billion of them. Tyr better if you want to make a subtle dig.
John said on 4/Jan/15
What do you guys think about Ranvir Singh.I just don't get how tall he is.
Next to Anushka and Deepika he is barely taller than them,arround a half inch taller than Anushka and an inch taller than Deepika and he was solid 3 inches shorter than 6' Arjun Kapoor so i would guess him at 5'8.5-5'9.
But when i compare him to 5'9(175cm) Karan Johar,Ambitah Bachan(who is probably 6' nowadays) and Ranbir Kapoor he does look 5'10.
If Imran Khan is 5'9.3(176cm) and is like 1.5-2 inches taller than Anushka and Deepika then it makes Ranvir no more than 5'8.

Looks little over 5'10 with Pique and was a solid inch maybe 1.5 taller than strong 5'9(176cm) Imran Khan so i would guess him at 5'10.5-5'11.
Since Sonu Sood is 6'2(188cm) and arround an inch taller than him,Abishek could be legit 6'1(186cm)
linke said on 3/Jan/15
Sonu Sood is 6'2, Abhisekh is shorter than him. Abhisekh might be a strong 6'1, weak 6'2.

kreyzig 6ft 3 said on 31/Dec/14
He has got to be taller than 5ft 11 flat more like 5ft 11.5.My friend saw him at a movie promotion in mumbai and says ranbir had 2in on him and my friend is about 5ft 10.

solid 6 feet (1.83 m), saw him and he has also claimed this height
Amaze said on 29/Dec/14
6' everywhere/183 but knew he was lower. I thought 181-2 range but you defo sure about this rob? 5'11(180 flat) is alright. He's tall for an Indian male still .
Arch Stanton said on 29/Dec/14
Now he does look it, I'd guess he's probably listed at 6 ft 1 or something though! He reminds me of an Indian De Niro in looks anyway!
