Sanjay Kapoor recently received an award at the House of Commons, Parliament of the United Kingdom, for being the Most Inspiring Indian Bollywood Actor.
Sanjay Kapoor has been a part of the industry for almost three decades, and was recently seen in The Zoya Factor. On receiving this award, he said,
Every actor feels great while getting an award and when you receive awards after 25 years of being around, it’s reassuring that people still love you and like your work. It particularly recognises my work in the last two years, starting from Dil Sambhal Ja Zara, to the web series and my recent Bollywood release Mission Mangal. I’ve always believed that sometimes, a 30-minute short film can do wonders to your career. The kind of platform the series gave me was heartwarming.
While this is great news for the Kapoor family, netizens were... confused, to say the least.

The appearance of Sanjay Kapoor in the Bollywood movies is still greater than the expressions of Katrina Kaif in her acting in her entire Bollywood career though. #SanjayKapoor— Udit (@udit_buch) October 1, 2019
Without his existence you cannot relate the success of stars, he fulfills dichotomy of success and failure! Pandma bhusham is minimum.— pundlik (@pundlikbhosle92) September 30, 2019
Inspiration comes from the fact, that if he could be in Bollywood, anyone can inspire to be in films😊— SachinVij (@sachinvij) September 30, 2019
