Fondly Remembered as Lakhan or Mr. India of Bollywood, Anil Kapoor turns 53 this year on 24th December. Anil Kapoor is one of the three siblings born to film producer Surinder Kapoor and Nirmal Kapoor. His siblings are the successful producer Boney Kapoor and actor Sanjay Kapoor!

Kapoor entered the acting world with a supporting role in Umesh Mehra's Humare Tumhare in 1979. After a string of supporting roles in the Hindi Film industry, he tried his hands in the Southern Indian film industry. However, after a few films there, he returned to Bollywood with more supporting roles. Meri Jung turned out to be his first commercial success in which he played an angry young lawyer fighting for justice.
With his movies like Chameli ki Shaadi, Tezaab, Beta, Woh Saat Din, Meri Jung, Janbaaz, Karma, Mr. India, Virasat, Woh Saat Din, Laadla, Judaai hitting the jackpot at the box-office, he was honoured with awards. He fetched the Filmfare best Actor award for Tezaab and Beta, along with a Filmfare Critics Award for Best Actor, for his movies Biwi No.1 and Virasat and earning him his 1st National Award was the critically acclaimed film, Pukar. He was also awarded the Filmfare Award, in the Best Supporting Actor category, for his role in Yash Chopra's Mashaal and in Subhash Ghai's Taal.
The man is cherished for his roles in Ram Lakhan and Mr. India which gave him renowned nicknames such as Lakhan and Mr. India. He debuted as a producer with the critically acclaimed film, Gandhi My Father. In 2008, Kapoor scripted history by staring in his first English project, the Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire. He was globally appreciated for his performance in this film and this formed the bridge to his next English venture Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol in 2010. Along with movies he also joined the hit television series 24, playing the character President Omar Hassan. Currently he is busy with some of his releases this year and the subsequent year which also includes the indian interpretation of the series 24!
Kapoor is married to Sunita Kapoor since 1985 and is the father of 3 kids; actress Sonam Kapoor, producer Rhea Kapoor and son Harshwardan Kapoor.
