Acting career[edit]

1980s[edit]

Anil Kapoor made his Hindi film debut with Umesh Mehra's Hamare Tumhare (1979) in a small role. After playing a small role in Shakti (1982), he played his first leading role in Woh Saat Din. He gained recognition in Bollywood with Yash Chopra's drama Mashaal (1984) as a Tapori, for which he won his first Filmfare Award in the Best Supporting Actor category. His Tapori persona and stubble look was considered unconventional at the time, but would later become more fashionable in India many years later.[7] Anil Kapoor's 1985 releases included Yudh and Saaheb. Yudh featured him uttering his now iconic dialogue "Ek Dum Jhakaas".

Going on to deliver films like Meri Jung (1985), a role of an angry young lawyer fighting for justice. Anil Kapoor played a comic Tapori in Karma (1986), the biggest hit of the year.[8] Also in 1986, Kapoor played the role of a care free playboy in the hit Janbaaz, co-starring Feroz Khan.[9][10] Kapoor's other release of 1986 Insaaf Ki Awaaz was a box office hit.[11] In the same year Basu Chatterjee directed Chameli Ki Shaadi and he displayed his crackling flare in comedy.[12]

Anil Kapoor had a title role in Shekhar Kapur's sci-fi film Mr. India (1987), the biggest hit of the year.[13] The film became one of his biggest box office hits and shot him to superstar status.[14] Anil Kapoor was equally impressive in Mahesh Bhatt directed film Thikana.[15] In 1988 he was rewarded with his first Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performance in the film, Tezaab, the biggest blockbuster of 1988.[16] Anil proved to be the only saving grace even in flops like Ram-Avtar.[17] The following year he delivered Ram Lakhan (which became the second highest box office earner of 1989)[18] with the song One Two Ka Four. In the film Parinda, Kapoor played his role with conviction and his biggest achievement was displaying the vulnerability of his character so perfectly.[19] In Rakhwala Anil Kapoor again essayed the role of a Tapori, and the film was declared a success.[14][20] Kapoor excelled in his portrayal of an autistic person in the 1989 film, Eeshwar and this film proved his versatility as an actor.[21]

1990s[edit]

The year 1990 saw him play a dual role, as twin brothers in the highly successful Kishen Kanhaiya and in the same year he further attained reasonable box office success with Ghar Ho To Aisa.[22] Kapoor came up with a critically acclaimed performance in Awaargi. Many critics called that his best performance ever.[23] This was followed by a restrained yet striking performance as a middle age man in Yash Chopra's romantic drama Lamhe, opposite actress Sridevi which won her Filmfare Best Actress Award 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 a box office failure in India, it proved to be a success overseas. Anil Kapoor's 1991 release, Benaam Badsha was accorded above average status at the ticket window.[24]

In 1992, Kapoor received his second Filmfare Best Actor Award for his hard-hitting performance in Indra Kumar's Beta — the biggest blockbuster of the year opposite Madhuri Dixit.[25] Kapoor was highly impressive with his comic act in Khel and his comic timing was one of the highlights of the film.[26] 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 again with Sridevi, a film produced by Nitin Manmohan.[27] Kapoor gave a splendid performance as a simpleton lover in the hit musical 1942: A Love Story. His 1995 release, Trimurti was a box office disaster, though Kapoor's performance was creditable.[28] Kapoor came up with a decent performance in the average performer Gharwali Bharwali.[29]

After a few box office failures, he had box office success with films like Loafer (1996),.[30] In Judaai, Kapoor's depiction of a loving husband twisted between his two wives was appreciated and this film fared well at the box office.[31] Deewana Mastana (1997), Biwi No.1 (1999) and Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain (1999) were box office hits.[32] Kapoor’s unusual characterization of a zealous, crooked musical superstar in Taal (1999) shocked both audience and critics alike.[33] He also won rave reviews for his superb performance in Virasat, a remake of the Tamil film, Thevar Magan (1992), in which Kamal Hassan had played Kapoor's role. He also starred in the unsuccessful Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate, which was legendary filmmaker Hrishikesh Mukherji's last commercial release, along with Juhi Chawla. He shaved his moustache once again for the film, in the second half, where he played actor Sajid Khan's wife and his delightful comic timing was a real treat to watch.

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.[34] He won his first National Film Award in the Best Actor category for his role in Rajkumar Santoshi's critically acclaimed Pukar in 2000. Kapoor again tasted critical and commercial success with Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai in 2000.[35][36] Kapoor stole the show as Rajeev in the much delayed, Karobaar, a film directed by Rakesh Roshan, where Kapoor’s dialogue delivery was appreciated.[37] He delivered a powerhouse performance in Shanker's Nayak which is considered to be his best performance by many.[38][39][40][41]

In 2002, Kapoor gave an excellent performance in the role of a fat man in Badhaai Ho Badhaai, a takeoff from the Hollywood hit, The Nutty Professor.[42][43] He notched up yet another glorious performance in the Indra Kumar directed film Rishtey.[44][45] In Om Jai Jagadish, he gave an amazing performance.[46] Kapoor shared the screen with Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan for the first time in Armaan, and underplayed his character of a neurosurgeon superbly.[47][48]

In his 2003 release, Calcutta Mail, 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.[49][50] He ignited the silver screen with an authoritative performance in Musafir.[51][52] Kapoor gave an incredibly restrained performance as the stricken husband in the thriller My Wife's Murder, which he also produced.[53][54][55][56] 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.[57] 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 with finesse in the 2005 thriller, Chocolate.[58][59] 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.[60] Anees Bazmee's Welcome, which released on 21 December 2007 and was declared the biggest success of the year.[61] Kapoor's understated performance in Subhash Ghai's Black and White was highly lauded.[62][63][64] 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 most recent films were his first English language film, Slumdog Millionaire, which was released on 12 November 2008, and Yuvvraaj, which was released on 21 November 2008. Yuvvraaj, with Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles, 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). 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.

2010s[edit]

In 2010, Kapoor starred in the eighth season of the American television series 24, portraying Omar Hassan, President of the fictional Islamic Republic of Kamistan. In October of that year he was cast to play a villain in both Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (released in December 2011) and Power.[65] Power was to be directed by Rajkumar Santoshi but was shelved due to unknown reasons. Other projects that he currently has in the pipeline include Cities (a Hollywood project co-starring Clive Owen and Orlando Bloom), Mr. India 2, the sequel to No Entry, Race 2 and Sanjay Gupta's Shootout at Wadala. He had also signed Khiladi 786, which released in December 2012 but did not appear in it eventually.[66] Anil Kapoor's only release of 2012 Tezz earned him favorable reviews from critics.According to critic Taran Adarsh "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.".[67] His performance in Shootout at Wadala is highly acclaimed by critics. Sudhish Kamath of The Hindu praised kapoor by saying "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."[68] 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.[69][70]

Producing[edit]

In 2002, Kapoor produced his first film, the comedy Badhaai Ho Badhaai, in which he also starred in. It was followed by My Wife's Murder (2005), and Gandhi, My Father (2007). Gandhi, My Father focuses on the relationship between Mahatma Gandhi and his son Harilal Gandhi (2007) and was awarded the National Film Award – Special Jury Award / Special Mention. He produced the movie Shortkut: The Con Is On starring Akshaye Khanna and Arshad Warsi. In 2010, he produced Aisha (2010 film), starring his daughter Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol in the lead roles. The film performed moderately at the box office, grossing Rs. 155 million in its theatrical run.[71]

He has acquired the remake rights for the American TV success, 24, reportedly for an amount of INR 1 billion. It took him about 1.5 years to license the rights to create an Indian rendition of the popular TV show.[72] Kapoor will be stepping in the protagonist's (Jack Bauer) role as well. Kapoor played the role of President Hassan in the 8th season of the original series aired on Fox Network.

Singing[edit]

Anil Kapoor has on rare occasions contributed to the soundtracks of his movies, as a singer. One of his first playback songs was the title track of the 1986 Bollywood comedy Chameli Ki Shaadi. The song was comedic in nature and depicted the love story of the titular Chameli and her lover Charandas, played by Kapoor. Chameli was portrayed by Amrita Singh. In the same decade, he was credited on the song "Tere Bina Main Nahin Mere Bina Tu Nahin" for the film Woh Saat Din. He is also credited on the song "I Love You" from Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai. In 2008, Kapoor provided a rhyme-like-dialogue to introduce his character in Yashraj's Tashan. His theme was titled "Bhaiyaji ka Tashan". Interestingly, his co-stars in the movie also had their introductions incorporated in the soundtrack, which was composed by Vishal-Shekhar. Akshay Kumar's theme was titled "Bachchan Pandey ka Tashan". Kareena Kapoor's was "Pooja ka Tashan". Saif Ali Khan was credited for "Jimmy ka Tashan". He had one full album, "Welcome" as a co-singer with Salma Agha in 1986. The album was scored by Bappi Lahiri.
