ShahRukh Khan’s Josh made Sharad Kapoor immortal After a string of flops Sharad Kapoor’s career was in doldrums but call it pure destiny he won the crucial role of Prakash Sharma, the ‘tapori’ gang leader of Bichoo Gang in Mansoor Khan’s film Josh. Readers would be surprised to know that Mansoor Khan, cousin of Aamir Khan had agreed to direct the film for Ratan Jain of Venus Records & Tapes because he wanted to cast Aamir Khan and ShahRukh Khan together in the film. The role of Max, leader of Eagle gang was assigned for ShahRukh Khan and King Khan had agreed to do the film. The opponent Bichoo Gang leader role was penned for Aamir Khan and Mr Perfectionist had given his nod but when he read the script he found the character of Max (played by SRK) more charismatic hence he opted out and in his place Mansoor took Sharad Kapoor with a heavy heart but when Sharad came in front of camera, Mansoor was overwhelmed by Sharad’s brilliant performance! The role won Sharad Kapoor much appreciation. It also fetched him Filmfare nomination as Best Villain but lost to Suniel Shetty who was awarded for Dhadkan. The film gave a new lease of life to Sharad Kapoor and his film career took a new turn.

Sharad Kapoor run away to Mumbai from Kolkata to become actor Since his school days Sharad Kapoor had penchant for acting. He idolized Amitabh Bachchan and dreamt of becoming a hero like Amitabh Bachchan. After completing his higher secondary education in Kolkata Sharad Kapoor run to Mumbai to chase his dream of becoming a hero. But when he landed in Mumbai, he realized it was not a cake walk to become a hero. After hunting from studio to studio he decided to become assistant director and first learn the art of filmmaking. So he worked as assistant to Sunil Sikand (Actor Pran’s son) for the film Lakshman Rekha (1991) and reputed filmmaker Shashilal K. Nair when he was making Angaar (1992). Dejected with no success Sharad Kapoor went back to Kolkata but in the mid 90’s the bug of acting made him return to Mumbai. In an interview he said that in 1994 he came back to Mumbai but this time he was determine

Koel had done a course in hospitality and was working as manager at the reputed 5-star hotel. They recognized each other and the both fell in love at first sight. Sharad could not control his emotions and took her phone number which she shared without hassle. The same evening Sharad opened his heart over the phone and proposed for marriage. The duo married in 2006.

Sharad Kapoor’s determination paid off and he won work in TV When Sharad Kapoor landed in Mumbai for the second time he was clear that he will leave no stone unturned to make a career in films. But yet again he failed to obtain work in films hence he decided to make a stat with TV serials and to his good luck he got his first TV serial Aankhen, Nafrat Aur Chahat and Swabhimaan directed by Mahesh Bhatt. While working for Mahesh Bhatt, Sharad Kapoor developed a great rapport with Bhatt and Bhatt was impressed by the style and attitude of Sharad Kapoor Mahesh Bhatt gave thrust to Sharad Kapoor’s career After an impressive start on TV, Sharad Kapoor was offered two Bollywood films Mera Pyara Bharat (1994) and Hum Bhi (1995) but was bogged down by their failures. With the failure of two films in a row he was tagged as junk star and his career was in mess but thanks to Mahesh Bhatt, who rescued his career. He gave him a power packed role of a jilted lover, in his film Dastak (1996), who kills everybody who comes in between his love. The role was on the lines of ShahRukh Khan in Darr. Hence Sharad Kapoor had great challenge to either equal or suppress King Khan. It was a great opportunity for Sharad Kapoor to display histrionics and make waves in Bollywood as ShahRukh Khan did with Darr! The other attraction of the film was Miss Sushmita Sen, who had just won the Miss Universe title and was making headlines. Mahesh Bhatt, had specially crafted a role for Sushmita Sen. In the film she played herself i.e. a Miss Universe who is hunted by a psychopath (Sharad Kapoor) who is madly in love with her and is so obsessed that he unleashes terror in her life. The film was not a big hit hence it could give Sharad Kapoor the kind of appreciation that ShahRukh Khan got after Darr, nevertheless, the film did won rave reviews and brought Sharad Kapoor in limelight in Bollywood. Mahesh Bhatt made Sharad Kapoor hero in his film Tamanna Mahesh Bhatt continued his affection for Sharad Kapoor and made him a hero in his next film Tamanna opposite his daughter Pooja Bhatt. The film was a sensitive drama focused on girl child issue. The film depicted an emotional drama about a eunuch’s love for an abandoned baby girl, whom he rescues and brings-up as his own baby. The movie was an average hit. It helped Sharad Kapoor sign many films like Achena Atithi, Ankhon Mein Tum Ho, Iski Topi Uske Sar, Sar Ankhon Par, Kahani Kismat Ki, Trishakti, Radheshyam, Khauff etc but alas none of the film could run at box office! After Josh Sharad Kapoor was flooded with films After Josh Sharad Kapoor was flooded with films but Sharad did not select his films cleverly hence despite few good films like Lal Salaam, LOC Kargil, Patth, Lakshya, Wanted, Jai Ho etc most of his films failed like Censor, Kyo Kii... Main Jhuth Nahin Bolta, Jaani Dushman, Zinda Dil, Plan, Panchhi, Dahek, Hook Ya Crook etc. which ruined his filmy career
