Facts
Ranjeet Bedi is a veteran indian actor known for mostly playing villain character in over 200 bollywood movies. His real name is Gopal Bedi but he is better known by his screen name Ranjeet.
Ranjeet was born on September 12, 1942 in a Sikh family to Dwarakaprasad Bedi and his wife Raj Kaur Bedi in Jandiala Guru, Amritsar, Punjab, India. He has 2 younger brothers, Prem Bedi & Ramesh Bedi and a younger sister.
He completed his schooling from Apeejay School in New Delhi and later graduated with a Degree in Arts from Hindu College, New Delhi.
During his college days, he used to play football as a goalkeeper and everyone used to call him 'Goalie'.
He was selected in National Defence Academy entrance exam and even enrolled for the training as an Air Force cadet but he was sacked after he got involved with the trainer's daughter. 1
During this time he got acquainted with Ranveer "Ronnie" Singh, who was planning a movie titled 'Zindagi Ki Raahein' and asked him whether he would like to join films. But the film got shelved. Ranjeet met Sunil Dutt & Mohan Segal through Ranveer "Ronnie" Singh.
Ranjeet had even decided to quit the film industry and was about to fly to Germany to start off a chemical factory there. But he got offers for Mohan Segal's Sawan Bhadon (1970) and Sunil Dutt's Reshma Aur Shera (1971).
It was Sunil Dutt, who suggested him to use a Filmy name 'Ranjeet' instead of his real name 'Gopal Bedi'.
He made his acting debut in Mohan Segal's Sawan Bhadon (1970) as Rekha's brother Damu. Although he was signed for Rs. 1500 but was given a cheque of just Rs. 250 only. He kept that cheque as a memento for a long time.
Sunil Dutt recommended his name for Sharmeelee (1971), after liking his performance in Sawan Bhadon (1970) & Reshma Aur Shera (1971). He rose to fame as a villain after starring in 'Sharmeelee' as baddie Kundan.
He has an infamous record for having committed a record 350 rapes onscreen.
Ranjeet was offered the role of Gabbar Singh in 'Sholay' after Danny Denzongpa but he turned it down. The role eventually went to late Amjad Khan and the rest is history.
He got married to a girl named Pushpa after being in a live-in relationship with her for 12 years. Ranjeet revealed,
"We were friends since the time I was a nobody. I had decided that if I ever got married, it would be with her. Though I had given her everything and she was introduced as the lady of the house, as a woman it must have been hell for her to be called 'Ranjeet's mistress'. Also, I'm not made in the 'use and throw' mould. So I married her despite having several girls chasing me and gave her the status of a wife."
However within a year and a half, walked out on Ranjeet and even aborted their baby.
"Some girls poisoned her mind against me. She knew me for 12 years. What worse could I have been than what she already knew? People divorce after 12 years, but I chose to marry her after 12 years of living in.", Ranjeet said.
Ranjeet was involved with actress Babita Shivdasani after her separation with Randhir Kapoor. He also dated Simple Kapadia for a brief time.
His brother, Prem Bedi is also actor and he acted in movies like Ladaaku (1981) & Morchha (1980) and also in TV Series Byomkesh Bakshi (1993-97).
Brother Ramesh Bedi is a director known for Gehra Raaz (1996), Suhaag Ka Balidaan (1987) & Kasam (1976). He had also launched a film titled 'Beeswe Sadi' starring Ranjeet as the lead actor opposite Reena Roy but the film got shelved. Ramesh Bedi is married to Usha Bedi.
Ranjeet had selected Aloka as a leading lady in his directorial debut Kaaranama (1990) and this brought them closer and they fell in love. The film was delayed and Aloka's role was eventually done by Kimi Katkar. Ranjeet revealed about this in an interview,
"How I met her was that I was going to cast her in my film, but my parents liked her. she was modern yet homely, could speak English as well as Punjabi. what else could I want. My younger brother and sister were married and my parents were really keen on me settling down. Par un dino ke Ranjeet ko kaun apni beti deta (Who'd have married their daughter to the then Ranjeet). Luckily, my in-laws did; I insisted on an intimate wedding with only immediate family present."

However, some of Nazneen's relatives were livid when they found out that she had been married to Ranjeet and even suggested to her mother that she should have poisoned or drowned her daughter instead of letting her marry Ranjeet.
"Later, one of my wife's relatives was livid when she found out she had been married to me. They told my mother-in-law that she should've instead poisoned or drowned her daughter than letting her marry me. They tried to instigate them saying that they should check their daughter's body for marks of violence because surely I got drunk and beat her up every evening. My in-laws shot back that if anyone would get hit in the relationship, it would be Ranjeet," he added. 2

Ranjeet and Nazneen got married on April 30, 1986 and she changed her name to Aloka Bedi after the marriage. The couple was blessed with a daughter Divyanka Bedi and a son Chiranjeev Bedi.
His wife Aloka Bedi is often mistaken with Mumtaz's niece and actress Nazneen Merchant as Aloka's real name is also Naazneen.
He made his directorial debut in Kaaranama (1990) starring Vinod Khanna, Kimi Katkar & Farha Naaz but unfortunately it did not go well with the audience was declared as a big flop at the box office. Ranjeet's daughter Divyanka Bedi played the role of Vinod Khanna's son and his son Chiranjeev Bedi portrayed the role of Kimi Katkar's son in the movie.
In 1992, he produced and directed the movie 'Ghazab Tamasha' starring Rahul Roy & Anu Agarwal but this film was also a box office flop.
Sunil Dutt had suggested him to join politics, but he was not interested in it.
Although he has created a name for himself doing villainous roles but in real life he is a vegetarian, non-smoker and hardly drinks.
Ranjeet loves to paint and often posts pictures of his paintings on instagram.
