Globally, Anil Kapoor is one of the most recognized Indian film actors. He started at the bottom and had to face many hardships in life to reach where he is, today.

Here are a few inspiring statements, from the man himself.


“Instead of  focusing on my  looks I focus on  the character that  I am playing.”


“If you make a  feelgood film which  is complete candyfloss, where everybody is  good and everything is beautiful and hunky dory,  it won't appeal to the  audience.”


“I ran away from  my house when  I was about 12 years  old to audition  for a film.”


“I have lot of  respect of filmmakers who work in Telugu  and Tamil.”


“Everyone starts  a film thinking that  it would be a big  hit. But sometimes it goes haywire.”


“But it is not  conscious strategy  to go for unconventional roles.”


“An outsider   can see some   things much   better.”


“India has the  purity, the innocence. India knows what it wants. There is a  direction. It has so  much to offer.”


“In India I've been  to all the award  functions, but that  was in Hindi; now it's  in English so it's a  much bigger scale.”


“Not exactly but  I get inspiration from stories which are  unconventional.”


“There are hurdles, there are handicaps, hardships you have to face in life, but you  hope for a great  future.”


“I am a fan  of Hrithik and I feel  he will be a star for 30-40 years. He is  really great.”
