The worm seems to have turned for Kapoor, finally. After a string of flops-his last big hit was Kaminey in 2009-his December 2013 release, R... Rajkumar, was well received by the audiences, earning about Rs 60 crore in the second week of its release. And though it does not fall within our time period, his 2014 film Haider-a modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare's Hamlet set in insurgency-hit Kashmir-has been a commercial success. Most experts call it the actor's career-best performance.
Fast Fact: Kapoor uses the last name Khattar, his stepfather's (Rajesh Khattar) surname, on his passport.
