One of Bollywood's most popular actor and producer turns a year older today! We are talking about none other than the evergreen and jhakaas Anil Kapoor!

Kapoor was born in Chembur, Mumbai to film producer Surinder Kapoor and wife Nirmal Kapoor. He finished his schooling from Our Lady of Perpetual Succor High School and graduated from St. Xavier's College. He married Sunita Bhambani in 1984 and has two daughters namely Sonam Kapoor and Rhea Kapoor, as well as a son, Harshvardhan Kapoor. His brothers Boney Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor are notable producers in the film business.

Kapoor made his B. Town debut with a small role in Umesh Mehra's Hamare Tumhare (1979). It was only in 1983 that Kapoor landed in his first full fleged role with Woh Saat Din alongside Padmini Kolhapure and Naseeruddin Shah. Yash Chopra's Mashaal (1984) helped Kapoor establish his foothold in the industry and in turn helped him win his first Filmfare award for the Best Supporting Actor. The year 1985 was full of iconic releases for Kapoor from Yudh to Meri Jung. Meri Jung also fetched Kapoor the much coveted Filmfare award for Best Actor. Since then there has been no turning back for this gentleman.  Karma, Janbaaz, Insaaf Ki Awaaz, Chameli Ki Shaadi, Mr. India, Tezaab, Parinda and Eeshwar were all highly successful films in late 1980's. Kapoor was able to prove he was a versatile actor by doing films such as Awargi (1990), Lamhe (1991), Beta (1992), 1942: A Love Story (1994) and Biwi No. 1 (1995).

In the 2000's his films such as Pukar, Karobaar, Nayak, Badhaai Ho Badhaai, Rishtey, Musafir, No Entry, Welcome and Race set the box office's registers ringing along with much deserving critical acclaim. 2002 marked the debut of our Mr. India' as a film producer. He produced Badhaai Ho Badhaai, Murder, and Gandhi, My Father. The latestof his productions is his daughter, Sonam Kapoor's Khoobsurat (2014). Slumdog Millionaire (2008) was his first Hollywood film and it brought great fame overseas, to the point that it went to the Oscars. In 2010, Kapoor was part of the eighth season of well-known television show 24. In the same year he was signed to star in Tom Cruise's Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011). Out of all the films he had done in 2012 Tezz was only film that gave him a favorable outcome. In 2013, Kapoor plays the main lead, Jai Singh Rathod in the Indian version of 24.

The actor's upcoming films are Welcome Back, No Entry Mein Entry and Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadakne Do.
