Favorite Quotes from Sanjay Kapoor

“Shekhar Kapur was initially supposed to direct ‘Prem.’ But the problem with Shekhar is that he is a very lazy guy, which is why he has made such few films over 30 years. He never wanted to start it, and that led to my frustration. We then decided on Satish Kaushik to direct it, who started the film in 1989.” – Sanjay Kapoor
“There are many things that I had learned from our father. Chimpu would always go abroad and bring us Batmans and strawberry rubbers. So when I was in class X, I took a promise from my dad that if I came first class, he would send me abroad. I studied really hard and came first-class, but coincidentally, one of my dad’s films did not do well at that time.” – Sanjay Kapoor
“There was a period when I was not doing much as an actor and was trying to become a producer. I wanted to do a film with Anil. I spent 3-4 years discussing everything with him and even going with the director he wanted.” – Sanjay Kapoor
“Everyone would say that Boney was a manipulator, but the fact is that he has always done things without any harm to anybody. He chose and decided the price for both Anil and me. I had a bank account, but till 12 years back, he managed all my money. In the beginning, I did big shows and got a lot of money, and he managed all of that.” – Sanjay Kapoor
“We used to live in Chembur in a two-bedroom hall. We were so connected with the Kapoors that Dabboo (Randhir Kapoor) would joke that we are related via satellite. My mom and Krishna aunty were best friends, and Chimpu (Rajiv Kapoor) and I grew up together. My father, Surinder Kapoor, used to work for Shammi Kapoor, and his first wife was my dad’s rakhi sister.” – Sanjay Kapoor
