Actress Annu Kapoor has played many characters in her career. Annu Kapoor never wanted to become an actor in Hindi cinema, but he has so much knowledge about folk art, folk culture and music that perhaps no other contemporary actor would get. There is a sad story behind this.
Annu Kapoor’s father Madan Lal’s drama company used to be famous. This was in those days when working in drama or drama was not socially acceptable. Therefore, Annu Kapoor’s mother did not want her father’s drama company to cast a shadow on her children. She wanted her children to become IPS officers, so that they could get respect and prestige in the society.
Actor Annu Kapoor narrated his journey of becoming an actor during the trailer of the film ‘Sab Moh Maya Hai’. ‘There was a reason for me getting into acting,’ he said. Because my father’s drama company subjected the family to social exploitation, my mother did not want the drama company to influence her children.”
Annu Kapoor’s father was the owner of a traveling Parsi theater company. He used to perform plays in towns and cities. ‘Father was not an actor,’ Anu Kapoor said. He was just the owner of a drama company, yet our family faced social abuse. My mother wanted me to study and become an IPS officer. But my studies ended midway. Also, my dream of becoming an IPS officer was also not fulfilled.”
‘My grandmother did not like that my father ran a drama company,’ actor Annu Kapoor said. Only after repeatedly refusing father, grandmother threw him out of the house. Because of this we did not have money and our studies were left midway. We have one sister and three brothers. Look at the game of nature, even if we don’t want to, we all are a part of the industry today.
