Being the legendary Bollywood persona, Dev Anand’s nephew, it is no surprise that Shekhar Kapur was attracted to the film industry. Even though discouraged by his father to pursue a career in films, Kapur had an interest, and a knack, in storytelling. He worked as an accountant and as a consultant for many years but these jobs weren’t the one he was truly meant to do. Finally, he abandoned his jobs and entered the world of moviemaking. Since then, he has worked as an actor, a producer, and most notably, as a director. Creating top class films, some of which turned out to be cult classics, Kapur’s stories have something magnetic about them.
