The ever so young and timeless Anil Kapoor celebrated his 62nd birthday on Monday. The supremely talented actor has an illustrious career of forty-odd years in Bollywood.

Anil Kapoor was born in Mumbai to film producer Surinder Kapoor and Nirmal Kapoor. His elder brother Boney Kapoor is a film producer and younger brother Sanjay is also an actor-producer. He also has a sister.

In 1984, he met Sunita Bhambhani, a beautiful model whom he got married to. The couple has three children, two daughters - Sonam and Rhea and a son Harshwardhan Kapoor.

Though his Bollywood debut went unnoticed with Humhare Tumhare, his first lead role in Woh Saat Din in 1983, marked the entry of a promising star in the film industry.

The real blockbusters of Anils career are Meri Jung (1985), Karma (1986), Mr India (1987), Tezaab (1988) and Ram Lakhan (1989), Loafer (1996), Judaai (1996), Deewana Mastana (1997), Biwi No 1 (1999) and Hum Aapke Dil Mein Rehte Hain (1999).

In 2015, Anil Kapoor greyed his hair onscreen for the first time in his career for Zoya Akhtar's Dil Dhadakne Do.

The same year, Anil Kapoor had a cameo in popular American show Family Guy. Jhakaas.

He is among the very few actors who have been successful in all genres of films. Whether its Rajkumar Santoshi's critically acclaimed Pukar (2000), or his power-packed appearance in Nayak (2001), cine-buffs loved him in all kinds of roles. Calcutta Mail (2003) is another major highlight of his career.

Anil has not just been able to make a mark in Bollywood but the actor also starred in the Oscar-winning Hollywood film, Slumdog Millionaire (2008) as well as tried his hand at television with the popular series 24.

His films in the pipeline are Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga co-starring his daughter Sonam Kapoor and the biopic on Abhinav Bindra, which features his son Harshvardhan. He will also be seen in Karan Johar’s directorial Takht.

Actor Sonam Kapoor wrote a heartfelt note for her father Anil and shared it on social media. The actor noted that it was a momentous year for the both of them as Sonam got to share screen space with her father for the first time in her career and Anil saw his daughter getting married.

His daughter Rhea Kapoor took it to her social media handle and shared a video in which his family can be seen marking the day with delicious cakes.
