Pankaj Kapur Biography
Pankaj Kapur was born in Ludhiana, Punjab, on May 29, 1954. He finished his education in Punjab and grew up with a strong interest in theatre and acting. To pursue his interest, he enrolled in the National School of Drama.
He worked in theatre for four years after graduating from the National School of Drama, until Richard Attenborough offered him a role in Gandhi. He has directed over 74 plays and serials over the years, including Office Office, Karamchand, Mungerilal Ke Haseen Sapne, Zabaan Sambhalke, and others.
First marriage of Pankaj Kapur
Neelima Azim is Pankaj Kapur’s first wife. Pankaj and Neelima met when actors used to do theatre and Neelima wanted to make a name for herself in the dance world. She was a skilled Kathak dancer. Pankaj Kapoor and Neelima had become good friends from their first meeting, and they had no idea when this friendship turned into love. Soon after, both of them decided to marry. Both of them married in 1975, when Pankaj Kapur was 21 years old and Neelima was only 16 years old.
In 1981, Neelima Kapoor gave birth to her son Shahid Kapoor after their marriage. Pankaj and Neelima’s relationship began to deteriorate only after this. The fight between the two became so heated that they eventually decided to split up. Pankaj Kapur divorced from his first wife, Neelima, in 1984. Their marriage lasted only nine years before Neelima moved to Delhi with her son Shahid. However, Neelima now resides in Mumbai.
Supriya Pathak entered Pankaj Kapur’s life after he divorced Neelima Azim. The two first met on the set of the film ‘Naya Mausam,’ which has yet to be released, in 1986. Supriya was divorced when she met Pankaj Kapur. In such a situation, they began to enjoy each other’s company. Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak, on the other hand, did not rush their wedding. Both gave their relationship some time, and there were many meetings between Pankaj and Supriya during this time, after which both of them decided to marry.
Dina Pathak was displeased
Pankaj Kapur and Supriya’s relationship pleased everyone in the actor’s household. Supriya’s mother, on the other hand, was completely opposed to the relationship. Supriya, on the other hand, defied her mother and joined Pankaj Kapur’s hand. Both of them married in 1989, and after a while, Supriya’s mother adopted Pankaj Kapur. Pankaj Kapur and Supriya Pathak married and had two children, Sana and Ruhaan Kapoor. Supriya and Shahid Kapoor have a wonderful relationship.
