Boney Kapoor

Boney Kapoor

Big on ideas, bigger on execution - that's Boney Kapoor, movie mogul par excellence. Son of established filmmaker Surinder Kapoor, Boney decided early on in life that films would be his forte. Starting in 1980 with the unconventionally designed and executed, the very successful HUM PAANCH, Boney has relished the unconventional - be it the story, the making, the casting or giving breaks to new directors and actors. From taking a calculated risk and successfully launching brother Anil Kapoor as an innocent village simpleton in WOH SAAT DIN to making the fantastic larger than life MR. INDIA - a huge critical and commercial success with the then unknown Shekhar Kapoor. From the extensively shot abroad JUDAAI which was a huge commercial success, to the national award winner PUKAAR; from the gritty underworld drama COMPANY to the hard-hitting SHAKTI, from the simply lovable SIRF TUM to the lavishly mounted reincarnation drama PREM, from the commercial caper LOAFER to the heart wrenching story of a rape victim in HAMARA DIL AAPKE PAS HAI, from the breezy RUN to the captivating KHUSHI & KYUN HO GAYA NA, Boney Kapoor has always followed his own instincts. Deviating into producing television serials Boney struck gold with his very first television venture MALINI IYER where his better half the luminous Bollywood star Sridevi Kapoor captured the hearts of television viewers all over.

While PUKAAR received the National award for the best film and best actor for Boney's brother Anil Kapoor, MATRUBHOOMI won a clutch of awards at international festivals and has been rated by no less than TIME MAGAZINE as one of the top ten films in the world for the year 2004.

Under Boney Kapoor's able leadership qualities, the company grew from strength-to-strength to produce some of the most memorable & entertaining films. Anil Kapoor along with the youngest brother Sanjay Kapoor and superstar Sridevi Kapoor the daughter-in-law of the family who has acted in over 280 films in various Indian languages further strengthened the company's foundation with their star popularity. Boney Kapoor went on to become one of the top film producers of the country and audiences look forward to watching his films. In fact if one talks about some of the biggest films produced in India so far, then MR. INDIA, ROOP KI RANI CHORON KA RAJA, PREM & PUKAAR would surely figure in them.

The journey that began 29 YEARS AGO saw an eventful year in 2005 that had Boney Kapoor in full throttle with many films hitting the marquee - BEWAFA, MATRUBHOOMI and NO ENTRY which went on to become the biggest commercial hit of the year. In early 2006 Boney Kapoor was elected as the President of the Film Federation of India, the apex body of the Indian film industry.

The year 2009 turned out to be yet another eventful year for Boney Kapoor and his production house, having hit the jackpot with the successful film WANTED which has been written by trade pundits as one of the all time top ten films. The film has created new box office records in many territories and is rated as the biggest hit of 2009.

After delivering two back-to-back super hit blockbuster films NO ENTRY & WANTED, Boney Kapoor now has his vision tightly focused on the future…a future in which Boney promises to deliver the best in filmed entertainment with projects like NO ENTRY MEIN ENTRY a sequel to NO ENTRY, Mr. INDIA - 2, a sequel to WANTED tentatively titled MOST WANTED and a film starring his son Arjun Kapoor in the lead which is a remake of a super hit film from down South.

Boney feels elated to represent his family whose three generations have served the Indian film industry. Surinder Kapoor who was born in Peshawar started this lovable relationship with films while working as an assistant director to the legendary K. Asif in the evergreen MUGHAL-E-AZAM before turning producer. Boney along with his brothers took the family ahead to days of glory by producing memorable films. His son Arjun, who worked as an assistant director to Nikhil Advani, made a mark for himself with his first outing as an actor in the successful ISHAQZAADE. Today he is one of the most sought after new actor in Bollywood having films like AURANGZEB, GUNDAY, TWO STATES and his father's film in his kitty. Boney's actress wife Sridevi Kapoor also established her credibility further when she made a remarkable come-back with the successful film ENGLISH VINGLISH. Both Sridevi Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor were nominated for best actor female and best actor male in all the major film awards.

The year 2013 added further glory to Sridevi career when she received her much deserved and awaited Padma Shri award for her enchanting contribution to Indian Cinema.

Boney Kapoor moved ahead by clubbing another feature to his already existing business by becoming the owner of the BENGAL TIGERS franchise in the CELEBRITY CRICKET LEAGUE that has most of the top actors of Bengali cinema as team members. He has planned the year 2013 and is set to launch at least two big budgeted feature films.
