Their son Shaurya, is in the process of being launched and has worked with David Dhawan, Abbas Mustan, Indra Kumar and Imtiaz Ali as an assistant director and his daughter Srishti works in fashion as a stylist and consultant.

Kiran is a Kashmiri by birth and has ties with the royal family by virtue of being the great grandson of the Vazir-e-Vazarat of Gilgit.[3] He is a follower of Sai Baba and has a production house named after the saint: Sainama Visions.

CareerEdit

FilmsEdit

He attended Daly College, a boarding school in Indore, enrolled at R.D. National College in Bandra, Mumbai, and later joined the Film and Television Institute of India (FTTI) in Pune. He was known as "Dipak Dar" in Film and Television Institute of India among his friends.[3] As a young boy, the film industry was drawn to him, partly because of his father's association with it.[citation needed] Kumar starred in Do Boond Pani in 1971 and went on to play the lead roles in several more movies. Kumar saw his career suffer with the release of movies like Jangal Mein Mangal, among others; however, despite this "slump", Kumar started to work in Gujarati movies, where he quickly attained a cult following,[citation needed] and the title "The Bachhan of Gujarati Cinema. Rakesh Roshan's Khudgarz got him back to Hindi cinema, in which negative roles in films like Tezaab and Khuda Gawah won him accolades as an antihero.

TelevisionEdit

One of his first television series was with Cinevistas (Sunil Mehta, Prem Kishen). He has since established himself as a Television star in the Television industry in series such as: Zindagi, Ghutan,[4] Sahil, Manzil, Grihasti, Katha Sagar, Aur Phir ek Din, Papa, Miilee, Chhajje Chajje Ka Pyar and more.

At one point he was in the process of starting a production house called Sainama Visions,[citation needed] for which the pilot episode of Aashiana was filmed.

Recently, he has been honoured with the life membership of the International Film and Television Club of the Asian Academy of Film & Television.

Currently one of the highest-paid actors on Indian TV, Kiran was last seen on the silver screen in Dharma's Brothers, along with Akshay Kumar, Jackie Shroff and Siddharth Malhotra. Before that, he played Anees Khan in Born Free Production's Bobby Jasoos. Soham Shah's next release with Sanjay Dutt Sher, (This film is currently stuck in the cans due to Dutt's recent incarceration.) also stars Kiran as the lead antagonist. Apart from social awareness ads and smaller independent cinema, he is actively involved in various philanthropic projects working with children's rights organisations and cancer awareness projects.

He is a member of Cine and Television Artists association and its core committee. He assisted with the organization of the Star CINTAA Superstars Ka Jalwa, a televised event that brought the entire Hindi film and Television industry together to perform and raise funds for CINTAA.

His credibility and professionalism are testament of his long standing innings in the Film and TV fraternity. With over 6800 episodes on TV, 550 Hindi movies and roughly 80 regional movies, in 43 years, his contribution to the entertainment industry remains rather large and all inclusive.
