Post that he started jumping between theatres and television when Balaji Telefilms came calling and offered him the lead in “Ghar Ek Mandir”. Life changed for Ram, for he not only found applauses but also his lady love Gautami Gadgil during the course of the show.
When all seemed well for Ram on TV, the actor decided to take a break and focus on the big screens. After minuscule roles in ‘Monsoon Wedding’, ‘Karthik Calling Karthik’,’ Udaan’ and ‘Ek Main Aur Ek Tu’, Ram struck gold with ‘Student of The Year’ where he played Varun Dhawan’s rich father. He also has films like ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’, ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’, ‘Humshakals’, ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ and ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ to flaunt.
He got married to TV actress Gautami in 2003 and the couple has two adorable children an 8 year old son Aks Kapoor born on January 12, 2009 and the elder daughter born in 2006.
