Shakti Kapoor is one of the most comic actors to grace the Bollywood screen. Since the start of his career he has done more than 300 films. He had been often nominated for the Filmfare Award in the most comic performance category. His on-screen pairing with another comic actor Kader Khan as the latter's son has often led to laughable comedies. When the Mumbai film industry competed with its American counterpart in serving the audience the 'show must go on' formula of 'sex and violence' this actor became one of the most recognized faces of the hodge-podge filmdom. His very notable performances include Nandu of the David Dhawan masterpiece Raja Babu.
