Sanjay Kapoor Big brother Boney Kapoor launched in Bollywood in 1995’s much-hyped reincarnation drama, “Prem”, and then went on to star in early films produced by top banners with some of the biggest actresses including Madhuri Dixit, Juhi Chawla and Mamta Kulkarni. . The youngest brother of Boney and Anil Kapoor, however, could not keep up the pace despite the regular flow of releases and had to wait for the recent rise of OTT culture to get a platform to restart his career.

“I have been in this business for quite some time, so there are many phases in my career. We always talk of playing character roles after a certain age, but until a few years ago, even getting a meaty role for one. Middle aged man, except for a few male actors. I am at this age where I cannot play a hero in a film and am not too old to play a grandfather. And the role of a father usually comes with limited opportunities,” Sanjay told IANS.

He said, “In mainstream cinema, stories of middle-aged people never found a place on OTT. We, actors my age, are really getting a chance to showcase their talent.”

Sanjay cited the example of the hit dance number “Dilbar Dilbar”, which was memorized by Sushmita Sen in her 1999 release “Sirf Tum”, to underline that she now needed a different kind of roles that her role in films cannot be taken.

He said, “Look, I can no longer dance on ‘Dilbar Dilbar’ but can play the character I did in ‘Lust Stories’ or ‘The Last Hour’. These platforms are investing in talent, they have faith in talent.” said.

So far, Sanjay has done enough in the OTT domain. Apart from the anthology film “Lust Stories” and the recent supernatural series “The Last Hour”, he starred in the lockdown thriller series “The Gone Game” last year, which is said to be gearing up for a second season. He will be seen in the upcoming series “Finding Anamika”, which stars Madhuri Dixit.

His latest,last hourThe Oscar-winning filmmaker features Asif Kapadia as an executive producer, and Amit Kumar as a producer. “I can see how Amit and Asif were more interested in backing talent than stardom. You know when it comes to cinema there is pressure to please everyone, you have to have intervals, songs and dances, item numbers. Even though in web series also, we use music and dance, if necessary, it is more that we are trying to reach out to global audience and saying with conviction, ‘this is our story, Check it out!’ I like this approach, this conviction. It is the makers’ trust that is helping us showcase our talent.”

“The Last Hour” stars Sanjay as an investigative police officer who travels from Mumbai to Sikkim to uncover the truth behind a mysterious murder. The show also stars Shahana Goswami, Raima Sen and Karma Takapa, and streams on Amazon Prime Video.
