Not many people are aware of the fact that Sanjay Kapoor has been in this industry for over 25 years and has been a part of some big projects not just as an actor but also as a producer. Some actors stay underrated and Sanjay is one such director’s actor who recently impressed everyone when he starred in ‘Lust Stories’ opposite Manisha Koirala. Recently, the actor was felicitated in the UK and received an honorary ‘most inspiring Indian actor’ award as well.
On receiving this award, he said,
” Every actor feels great while getting an award and when you receive awards after 25 years of being around, it’s reassuring that people still love you and like your work. Last year, in September, I got an award for web series in Oslo. Now, exactly a year later, I’ll be receiving an award in the UK for all the work that I have done as an actor.”
He added, “It particularly recognises my work in the last two years, starting from Dil Sambhal Ja Zara, to the web series and my recent Bollywood release Mission Mangal. The web series has recently been nominated at the Emmys, which feels great. I’ve always believed that sometimes, a 30-minute short film can do wonders to your career. The kind of platform the series gave me was heartwarming. “
While it is an honour indeed for the actor to get this recognition, netizens were… confused, to say the least.
Sanjay is currently enjoying a lot of good criticism for his work in ‘Zoya Factor’ and well, let’s give him a chance to prove he is worthy of it, after all.
