Early life edit

His elder brother, Boney Kapoor is a film producer and younger brother Sanjay Kapoor is an actor. The late legendary actress Sridevi and the producer Mona Shourie Kapoor, both Boney's wives, were his sisters-in-law, and Sandeep Marwah,[10] founder of the Noida Film City and owner of Marwah Studios, is his brother-in-law. The film actors Arjun Kapoor, Mohit Marwah and Ranveer Singh are his nephews, while actresses Janhvi Kapoor and Khushi Kapoor are his nieces. The Kapoor family of Prithviraj Kapoor are also his relatives as Prithviraj Kapoor was his father's cousin.[11]

Kapoor was educated at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour High School, Chembur,[12] and at the St. Xavier's College, Mumbai.[13]

Career edit

Acting edit

Kapoor made his debut in films in 1970, playing a young Shashi Kapoor in Tu Payal Mein Geet.[14] The film, however, did not release theatrically.[15]

1980s edit

Anil Kapoor made his Hindi films debut with Umesh Mehra's Hamare Tumhare (1979) in a small role. He then starred as a lead actor in the 1980 Telugu film, Vamsa Vruksham directed by veteran Bapu. In the same year, he also appeared in two more Hindi films – Ek Baar Kaho and Hum Paanch. In 1981, he appeared in M. S. Sathyu 's Kahan Kahan Se Guzar Gaya.[16] After playing a small role in Shakti (1982), he made his Kannada film debut with Mani Ratnam's Pallavi Anu Pallavi (1983). He played his first Hindi film leading role in Woh Saat Din (1983) which was directed by Bapu and featured Padmini Kolhapure and Naseeruddin Shah. He gained recognition in Bollywood with Yash Chopra's action drama Mashaal (1984) as a tapori, for which he won his first Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. His tapori persona and stubble look was considered unconventional at the time, but would become fashionable in India many years later.[17] Kapoor's 1985 releases included Yudh and Saaheb. Yudh featured him uttering his iconic line "Ek Dum Jhakaas". But it was Meri Jung (1985), wherein he played the role of an angry young lawyer fighting for justice that earned him his first nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor.

Anil Kapoor played a comic tapori again in Karma (1986), the biggest hit of the year.[18] Also in 1986, Kapoor played the role of a carefree playboy in the hit Janbaaz, co-starring Feroz Khan.[19][20] Kapoor's other release of 1986 Insaaf Ki Awaaz with Rekha was a box office hit.[21] In the same year, Basu Chatterjee directed Chameli Ki Shaadi where he was seen doing a comedic role.[22]

Anil Kapoor had a protagonist role in Shekhar Kapur's sci-fi film Mr. India (1987), the biggest hit of the year.[23] The film became one of his biggest box-office hits and shot him to superstardom.[24] In 1988, he won his first Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his performance in the film, Tezaab, the biggest blockbuster of 1988.[25] The same year also saw the release of Kasam, an action drama directed by Umesh Mehra. Anil proved to be the only saving grace in commercial failures like Ram-Avtar and Vijay.[26] The following year, he delivered Ram Lakhan (which became the second-highest box office earner of 1989)[27] with the song One Two Ka Four. In Rakhwala, Kapoor played the role of a tapori, and the film was declared a success.[24][28] Kapoor's portrayal of an autistic man in Eeshwar (1989) was well-received and established his versatility as an actor, earning him his third nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor.[29]

1990s edit

The year 1990 saw him play a dual role, as twin brothers in the highly successful action comedy Kishen Kanhaiya and the same year, he further attained reasonable box-office success with Ghar Ho To Aisa.[30] Kapoor came up with a critically acclaimed performance in Awaargi. Many critics called that his best performance ever but the film flopped at the box office. Also films like Jamai Raja and Jeevan Ek Sanghursh, out of which both of them were remakes of South Indian films, proved to be major flops. These films proved to be a setback in his career as 1990 was supposed to be the crowning year for Kapoor as the Hindi film industry's biggest male star. But with these flops, Anil was on the bad foot.[31]

This was followed by a highly praised performance as a middle-aged man in Yash Chopra's intergenerational musical romantic drama Lamhe (1991), opposite Sridevi, which won her the Filmfare Award for Best Actress, with Kapoor earning his fourth nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor. The film proved to a landmark film of Indian cinema and Yash Chopra's best work to date. It was the first film in which he appeared without a moustache. Although the film was an underwhelming success at the domestic box-office, it proved to be a major success overseas. Anil Kapoor's 1991 releases, Benaam Badsha was accorded average status at the box office.[32]

In 1992, Kapoor received his second Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his hard-hitting performance in Indra Kumar's Beta – the biggest blockbuster of the year opposite Madhuri Dixit.[33] Kapoor was highly impressive with his comic act in Khel and his comic timing was one of the highlights of the film.[34] In 1993, Boney Kapoor's much-delayed mega-budget, Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was a disaster at the box-office and damaged Kapoor's reputation as the industry's biggest star at the time. The only major success in these years was Laadla (1994) again alongside Sridevi, a film produced by Nitin Manmohan.[35] Kapoor gave a splendid performance as a simpleton lover in the musical romantic drama 1942: A Love Story opposite Manisha Koirala. Kapoor earned his sixth nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his performance in the film. His other 1994 release, Andaz, opposite Juhi Chawla and Karisma Kapoor, was also a success. His 1995 release, Trimurti was a box-office disaster, though Kapoor's performance was positively received, earning him his second nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor.[36] Kapoor came up with a decent performance in the moderate critical and commercial success Gharwali Baharwali (1998), opposite Raveena Tandon and Rambha.[37]

After a few box-office failures, he had successes with films like Loafer (1996), opposite Juhi Chawla.[38] In Judaai, Kapoor's depiction of a loving husband torn between his two wives was appreciated and the film fared well at the box-office.[39] Deewana Mastana (1997), Biwi No.1 (1999) and Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain (1999) were also box office hits, with Biwi No. 1 earning him his first nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Comedian.[40] Kapoor's unusual characterisation of a zealous, crooked musical superstar in Taal (1999) shocked both audience and critics alike, earning him rave reviews, in addition to his second Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor.[41] He again won rave reviews for his performance in Virasat (1997), a remake of the Tamil film, Thevar Magan (1992), in which he played Kamal Haasan's role. The film proved to be a major box office success, and earned him his first Filmfare Award for Best Actor (Critics), in addition to his seventh nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor. He also starred in the unsuccessful Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate, which was filmmaker Hrishikesh Mukherjee's last directorial, along with Juhi Chawla. He shaved his moustache once again for the second half of the film.

2000s edit

Anil Kapoor's first release of 2000 was Bulandi, in which he played a double role, showing restraint and maturity as the elder Thakur.[42] He won his first National Film Award for Best Actor, in addition to his eighth nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Actor for his performance in Rajkumar Santoshi's critically acclaimed Pukar (2000). Kapoor again achieved critical and commercial success with Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai (2000).[43][44] Kapoor performed as Rajeev in the much delayed Karobaar (2000), a film directed by Rakesh Roshan, where Kapoor's dialogue delivery was appreciated.[45] He delivered a powerhouse performance in Shanker's Nayak (2001), which is considered to be his career-best performances.[46][47][48][49]

In 2002, Kapoor performed in the role of a fat man in Badhaai Ho Badhaai, a takeoff from the Hollywood hit, The Nutty Professor.[50][51] He performed in the Indra Kumar directed film Rishtey.[52][53] In Om Jai Jagadish, he gave an amazing performance.[54] Kapoor shared the screen with Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan for the first time in Armaan, and played the character of a neurosurgeon.[55][56]

In his 2003 release, Calcutta Mail, according to Planet Bollywood, he delivered "one of his best performances. His character was defined with ample scope to perform in this screenplay-driven performance and in spite of the strong supporting cast, this really came out as Kapoor's one-man show."[57][58] According to Bollywood Hungama, he "ignited the silver screen with an authoritative performance" in Musafir alongside Sameera Reddy, Aditya Pancholi, Sanjay Dutt and Koena Mitra.[59][60] Kapoor performed as the stricken husband in the thriller My Wife's Murder, which he also produced.[61][62][63][64] Anees Bazmee's super-hit comedy No Entry (2005), followed for Kapoor that year. The film went on to become the highest-grossing film of the year, earning him his second nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Comedian.[65] He was also in the film Bewafaa, playing a rich businessman who is forced to marry the sister of his wife after she passes away in childbirth.

Kapoor played a grey character in the 2005 thriller, Chocolate.[66][67] Anil's first release of 2007 Salaam-e-Ishq: A Tribute to Love was a box office hit in overseas though a flop in India.[68] Anees Bazmee's Welcome, which released on 21 December 2007 was declared the biggest success of the year, earning him his fourth nomination for the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor.[69] Kapoor's understated performance in Subhash Ghai's Black & White was highly lauded.[70][71][72] His first release in 2008, Abbas Mustan's thriller, Race became a box-office hit. Vijay Krishna Acharya's Tashan marked Anil's comeback to Yash Raj Films, but failed to do well at the box-office.

His first English language film, Slumdog Millionaire, which was released on 12 November 2008. Yuvvraaj was released on 21 November 2008. Yuvvraaj, with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, failed to do well at the box-office. On the other hand, Slumdog Millionaire has won a number of international awards and received rave reviews from critics, costing only US$15 million to produce, but pulling in more than $352 million worldwide. In January 2009, he attended the 66th Golden Globe Awards ceremony along with the team of Slumdog Millionaire, which won four Golden Globe Awards. Kapoor demonstrated his well-known enthusiasm after Slumdog won the Academy Award for Best Picture (one of eight awards). He also received a nomination for Best Ensemble at the Black Reel Awards of 2008 and has won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

In October of that year he was cast to play a villain in both Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (released in December 2011) and Power.[73] Power was to be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi but was shelved due to unknown reasons.

Anil Kapoor's only release of 2012 Tezz earned him favourable reviews from critics; Taran Adarsh wrote that "...it's a treat watching Anil Kapoor on screen. Though the actor has been an integral part of so many movies in the past, you can never accuse him of repeating himself. Besides, he may be in his early 50s, but that hasn't deterred Anil from performing the high-octane action stunts with flourish."[74]

His performance in Shootout at Wadala was highly acclaimed by critics; Sudhish Kamath of The Hindu wrote that "Anil Kapoor is first-rate, revelling in a tailor-made role as a no-nonsense cop, reminding us of the superstar he used to be in the Eighties."[75] In January 2013 Kapoor became the first Indian actor to be invited for a special segment; "In conversation", at the Toronto International Film Festival, an honour which is reserved for actors having considerable body of work.[76][77] Beginning in 2013, he starred in the lead role of Jai Singh Rathod in the Indian remade series of 24.

In 2015, he starred alongside an ensemble cast of Shefali Shah, Priyanka Chopra, Ranveer Singh, Anushka Sharma and Farhan Akhtar in Zoya Akhtar's family comedy-drama Dil Dhadakne Do, which proved to be a commercial success and received positive reviews, earning Kapoor his third Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor.
