Born into a Punjabi-Hindu family in Chembur, Mumbai to Nirmal Kapoor and producer, Surinder Kapoor, Anil Kapoor was always passionate about acting. Although he had made his acting debut in 1970, playing the role of a young Shashi Kapoor in an unreleased film, Tu Payal Mein Geet, followed by a cameo in Hamara Tumhara, his debut as a lead actor was with a Telugu film, Vamsa Vruksham. He had received his first Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the film, Mashaal. In a career span of 40 years, Anil has won numerous awards, including two Nation Film Awards and six Filmfare Awards.
On December 24, 2020, Anil Kapoor turned 64 and his family made the day super special with their adorable wishes. His eldest daughter, actress, Sonam K Ahuja took to her IG handle and shared an adorable picture with her daddy, Anil and wrote, “Happy happy birthday daddy... you’re the most positive, kind, liberal human being, and we are blessed to have your values instilled in us. I miss you so much and I can’t wait to see you in the new year. @anilskapoor.” She also shared a throwback picture of Anil on her IG stories and wrote, “Happy birthday forever young” atop it.
On the other hand, his younger daughter, Rhea Kapoor shared adorable pictures of her daddy, Anil and wrote, “Happy birthday to my soul twin. Mentor. Friend. Dad. Competitor. Can’t live without you. #legendsonly @anilskapoor.” Rhea’s boyfriend, Karan Boolani too wished Anil with some unseen pictures.

Anil Kapoor celebrated his birthday on the sets of his upcoming film, Jug Jugg Jeeyo with his co-stars, Kiara Advani, Prajakta Koli, Varun Dhawan and Neetu Kapoor. His wife, Sunita Kapoor too joined them for the cake cutting. Dressed in a black-coloured jacket and trousers, Anil looked dapper as he posed for the camera.
Last year on his birthday, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Anil had revealed the reason why he was never fond of celebrating his birthday. He had said, “I never became a birthday person because my birthday falls on Christmas eve. We usually have the eve parties, and both coincide with each other. So, it’s more about celebrating Christmas than my birthday. In the past, I used to have small parties, which got bigger and bigger, but now, it’s back to being small. It’s all about my family now.”
Anil was a struggler when he had met the gorgeous model, Sunita. It was through his friend that Anil had gotten Sunita’s number and the two had started talking on phone before meeting in person. After talking on phone for over a few weeks, the two had met each other for the first time and by that time had developed a strong liking for each other.
