Indian cinema has gone through many decades. There have been many actors and actresses who have shown their prowess in the entertainment field from the early golden era of Bollywood. But if you ask me then my favorite genre of Indian cinema was during the 90s, when there were big stars like Sunny Deol, Jackie Shroff, Sanjay Dutt, Govinda, Salman Khan, Shahrukh Khan, Aamir Khan, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Ajay Devgun and others. With age, many of the stars have grown old, but there is one big star who is not yet ready to accept becoming old and is still very energetic and active, the very talented Jhakaas actor Anil Kapoor.
He belonged to the batch of the above-mentioned superstars. Many of you have been watching him since the 90s with films like Tezaab, Parinda, Laadla, Judaai, Deewana Mastana, and more. Anil Kapoor still has his fan following even today. You may be a big fan of this actor but are you aware of his early life, career, earnings, etc? If not, then read my blog till the end.
