Actor Sanjay Kapoor is on a roll. The actor, who entered Bollywood in 1995 with films like Prem, Raja and Kartavya, is enjoying a much-deserved second innings. In the last year, the actor starred in several titles, including Netflix movies Murder Mubarak and Merry Christmas, Zoya Akhtar’s Made In Heaven season 2 and the Shahid Kapoor action thriller, Bloody Daddy.

Around the release of his last offering, Murder Mubarak, we caught up with the actor for a casual chat and spoke about many things. From his views on nepotism to his daughter, Shanaya Kapoor’s debut in Bollywood, Sanjay for candid about everything.

During an exclusive interaction with Bollywood Bubble, Sanjay Kapoor got candid about the audience potentially comparing Shanaya Kapoor’s onscreen performances to that of her cousins like Sonam Kapoor, Arjun Kapoor, Janhvi Kapor and others.

Sanjay Kapoor on comparisons with daughter Shanaya Kapoor

Revealing if he faced the same in the ’90s – being compared to brother Anil Kapoor, Sanjay said, “See it doesn’t happen. Even in that time, when I came in and everything… it’s a very initial thing.”

He continued, “For a film or two people talk about it, then they will forget about it. Today when a movie about Sonam comes, nobody talks about Sonam and Anil. When Arjun’s film comes, nobody speaks of Anil and Arjun or Arjun and me. It’s only for a film or two… it’s a normal thing, you have to take it in your stride. Finally, it’s your family, so you will be a little bit compared. After a while, it just dies a natural death. After that, it’s the kind of roles you do (that has people talking). Today especially the rules as soon different to when we started.”

On the professional front, Sanjay Kapoor was recently seen essaying the role of Rannvijay Singh – the pauper king, in the Pankaj Kapoor-Sara Ali Khan multistarrer Murder Mubarak. Before that he played a pivotal part in the Netflix film Merry Christmas, co-starring Katrina Kaif and Vijay Sethupathi.
