Sanjay Kapoor


Sanjay Surinder Kapoor (born 17 October 1965) is an Indian actor and film producer. He works in Hindi cinema, Indian television, and web series


He is a member of the Surinder Kapoor family. Kapoor is the founder and director of Sanjay Kapoor Entertainment Private Limited.


Kapoor was born to Nirmal Kapoor and film producer Surinder Kapoor. He has three older siblings Boney Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, and Reena Marwah. 


Actors Sonam Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Janhvi Kapoor, Mohit Marwah, Harshvardhan Kapoor, and film producer Rhea Kapoor are his nephews and nieces. 


The Kapoor family of Prithviraj Kapoor are also his distant relatives as Prithviraj Kapoor was his father's cousin.


Kapoor made his debut in Hindi cinema in 1995 with the movie Prem, opposite newcomer Tabu. Although both debutants rendered fairly decent performances, the movie was delayed for many years as it was in production since 1989. On release, it bombed at the box office.


 Kapoor's next movie was Raja (1995) opposite Madhuri Dixit which was a box office success. He went on to star in several films as a lead actor such as Auzaar (1997), Mohabbat (1997), and Sirf Tum (1999). 


Apart from the moderately successful Chhupa Rustam: A Musical Thriller (2001) he didn't have much success as a lead actor as most of his films failed at the box office.


 In 2002, he appeared as a villain playing the psychotic husband of Esha Deol in Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe. His performance was praised by critics.


He started playing supporting roles in films like Qayamat: City Under Threat (2003), Julie (2004), Luck By Chance (2009), and Shaandaar (2015).


He married his longtime girlfriend and former actress Maheep Sandhu in 1997. The couple has two children, Shanaya and Jahaan Kapoor.
