Career of Sanjay Kapoor
Sanjay Kapoor made his debut in Bollywood in the 1995 film Prem opposite the National Award winning actor Tabu. Both the debutants gave a fairly decent performance in the film but the movie was delayed for many years as it was in production since 1989. When the movie finally released, it tanked in the box-office and was not a huge hit. Soon after, it was followed by another movie called Raja opposite Madhuri Dixit which turned out to be a great success. Although the movie revolved around the male lead, Sanjay Kapoor, it was Madhuri Dixit who garnered more applause for her brilliant acting and dancing skills and Sanjay Kapoor once again could not cement his position in the film industry. In the following years, most of his films could not gain success at the box office or became average grosser.
Sanjay Kapoor acquired critical acclamations in the Esha Deol starrer Koi Mere Dil Se Poochhe, where he portrayed an obsessive psychotic husband. And although the movie was a flop, but Sanjay Kapoor’s acting skills was noted for the first time. His performances in the flicks Luck By Chance, Julie and Qayamat: City under Threat also received praises from critics.
