Wife & Children
Ranjan got married to Alisha Vaid on 20 February 2022 in Agra.
In an interview, one of Ranjan’s friends talked about their wedding and said,
Luv and Alisha wanted to keep their wedding extremely private and away from the media glare. Luv is fiercely guarded about his personal space. That’s the reason he has never uttered a word about anything except his work.”
Ranjan started his career in 2011 at the age of twenty-seven with the film Pyaar Ka Punchnama.
He has directed and written the Bollywood films Akaash Vani (2013), Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2 (2015), and Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018).
In 2012, he became a producer and opened a company, Luv Film with his friend Ankur Garg. He has produced the Bollywood films Life Sahi Hai (2016), Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety (2018), De De Pyaar De (2019), Jai Mummy Di (2020), and Malang (2020).
In October 2018, an actress from the film Pyaar Ka Punchnamma accused Ranjan of sexual harassment against her. She said that Ranjan used to harass her on the sets of the film Pyaar Ka Punchnamma in 2001. Ranjan said that all the allegations were false and many actors came in support of Ranjan.
In 2019, he won the Listener’s Choice Song Of The Year at Mirchi Music Awards for the film Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
- Ranjan used to assist director Sunil Darshan before he started his career as a director. He worked with him in the films Mere Jeevan Saathi, Dosti and Barsaat. In an interview, he talked about it and said,
I was going to Nasik with my friend, Ankur Garg (now he is a partner in Luv Films) when I received a call that the filmmaker wanted to meet me. We jumped out of the moving train in Mulund and caught a cab to Bandra. Sunilji had left by then. But the next day he interviewed me and hired me.”
- After assisting the director for some time, he went to New York Film Academy to learn writing in 2015.
- In 2018, Rajan’s friend Ankur Garg gifted a Mercedes-Benz car to Ranjan because the film ‘Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety’ directed by him became a superhit.
- Ranjan directed films that were youth-centric. In an interview, he talked about this and said,
I think it’s just a reflection of my own experience in life. The truth is Akaash Vani was not a young film. The second half of the film was quite mature. It’s unfortunate that not many people have seen the film, so I am still associated more with ‘Youth Centric Films’.”
- `Many famous media houses refer to Ranjan as a misogynist. In an interview, he talked about this and said,
It’s like believing that Mr. Yash Chopra believed in adultery because he made Silsila. Having an opinion is a hobby of our people. I don’t think people think before voicing an opinion. And unfortunately my second film AkaashVani didn’t do well commercially. If it had I don’t think I would be answering this , question right now.”
