It’s undoubtedly true that Anil Kapoor is one of most handsome and yet bankable stars of bollywood. But, did you know that the Dil Dhadakne Do actor once lived in Prithviraj Kapoor’s garage in his tough days?
Yes, you heard it right! Anil Kapoor’s father, Late Surinder Kapoor, is the cousin of Legendary Late actor Prithviraj Kapoor. He is also known as one of the founding fathers of Indian cinema. When Anil shifted to Mumbai with his family, he had no place to stay and he lived in Prithviraj’s garage for a few years. Later, he shifted to a rented room in a chawl and lived there for a long time.
Anil Kapoor has said many times that he had signed the first few films of his career only for monetary help as his family needed to survive for. The actor once said, “My family and I are fortunate that those times are behind us and our circumstances since then have not been as tough. But if our luck takes a turn and we ever face bad times again, I will not think twice about doing whatever it takes to take care of my family.”
On the work front, Anil Kapoor has many projects in his pipeline including Jug Jug Jiyo, Animal, Takht and others.
