Bollywood STARS, Father-Daugher Duo Anil and Sonam Kapoor ON CNN ‘CONNECT THE WORLD’
Advertisement
#1
One of India's most well-known Bollywood actors, Anil Kapoor has carved a name for himself not only on the subcontinent, but also overseas in markets like the United States. Most moviegoers in the west will recognize Anil for his role in the Academy Award-winning film, "Slumdog Millionaire" in 2008. His performance in the film earned him a Screen Actors Guild award for outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture.

But, long before his breakthrough role for western audiences in "Slumdog Millionaire," Anil was one of the biggest celebrities in India. He first won acclaim for his role in the 1984 film "Mashaal" and three years later was part of another critical success in "Mr. India." Anil went on to appear in a number of highly lucrative films during the 1990s and was given several "Filmfare" awards during his career.

For Anil and his family though, it seems that the acting bug runs in the family. Anil's daughter, Sonam is also one of the country's biggest Bollywood stars. Born in 1985, Sonam has appeared in a number of blockbuster hits, including the smash hit "Delhi-6," opposite Abhishek Bachchan.


Anil and Sonam Kapoor spoke to Becky Anderson on CNN International’s ‘Connect the World’ about Slumdog Millionaire, nepotism in movies and working together as a father-daughter duo amongst other things.
