He gained recognition in Bollywood with Yash Choprau0027s drama Mashaal (1984) as a Tapori, for which he won his first Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actor. His Tapori persona and stubble look was considered unconventional at the time, but would become fashionable in India many years later. Kapooru0027s 1985 releases included Yudh and Saaheb. Yudh featured him uttering his iconic line "Ek Dum Jhakaas". But it was Meri Jung (1985), wherein he played the role of an angry young lawyer fighting for justice that gave him his first Filmfare best actor nomination. So all of Anilu0027s films in 1985 were noticed and liked and he had truly arrived in the industry.

  • 1988

    Anil Kapoor had a title role in Shekhar Kapuru0027s sci-fi film Mr. India (1987), the biggest hit of the year. The film became one of his biggest box-office hits and shot him to superstar status. Anil Kapoor was equally impressive in the Mahesh Bhatt directed film Thikana. In 1988 he was rewarded with his first Filmfare Best Actor Award for his performance in the film, Tezaab, the biggest blockbuster of 1988. The same year also saw the release of Anil Kapoor starrer Kasam, an action drama and romantic film directed by Umesh Mehra.

The following year he delivered Ram Lakhan (which became the second highest box office earner of 1989) with the song One Two Ka Four. In the film Parinda, Kapoor played his role with conviction and his biggest achievement was displaying the vulnerability of his character so perfectly. In Rakhwala, Kapoor again played the role of a Tapori, and the film was declared a success. Kapoor excelled in his portrayal of an autistic person in the 1989 film, Eeshwar and this film proved his versatility as an actor.

  • 1990

    The year 1990 saw him play a dual role, as twin brothers in the highly successful Kishen Kanhaiya and in the same year he further attained reasonable box-office success with Ghar Ho To Aisa. Kapoor came up with a critically acclaimed performance in Awaargi. Many critics called that his best performance ever but the film flopped at the BO. Also films like Jamai Raja and Jeevan Ek Sanghursh both South remakes were major flops. This was a setback in his career as 1990- was supposed to be the year in which Anil would have been crowned Number one in Bollywood. But with these flops Anil was on the bad foot. This was followed by a restrained yet striking performance as a middle-aged man in Yash Choprau0027s romantic drama Lamhe, opposite actress Sridevi which won her the Filmfare Best Actress Award a landmark film of Indian cinema and Yash Choprau0027s best work to date. It was the first film in which he appeared without a moustache. Although the film was a box-office failure in India, it proved to be a success overseas. Anil Kapooru0027s 1991 releases, Benaam Badsha was accorded below average status at the ticket window.

  • 1992

    In 1992, Kapoor received his second Filmfare Best Actor Award for his hard-hitting performance in Indra Kumaru0027s Beta u2013 the biggest blockbuster of the year opposite Madhuri Dixit. Kapoor was highly impressive with his comic act in Khel and his comic timing was one of the highlights of the film. In 1993, Boney Kapooru0027s much delayed mega-budget, Roop Ki Rani Choron Ka Raja was a disaster at the box-office and damaged Kapooru0027s reputation as the industryu0027s biggest star at the time. The only major success in these years was Laadla again with Sridevi, a film produced by Nitin Manmohan. Kapoor gave a splendid performance as a simpleton lover in the hit musical 1942: A Love Story. His 1995 release, Trimurti was a box-office disaster, though Kapooru0027s performance was creditable. Kapoor came up with a decent performance in the average performer Gharwali Baharwali.

  • 2000

    Anil Kapooru0027s first release of 2000 was Bulandi, in which he played a double role, showing restraint and maturity as the elder Thakur. He won his first National Film Award in the Best Actor category for his role in Rajkumar Santoshiu0027s critically acclaimed Pukar in 2000. Kapoor again tasted critical and commercial success with Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai in 2000. Kapoor stole the show as Rajeev in the much delayed Karobaar, a film directed by Rakesh Roshan, where Kapooru0027s dialogue delivery was appreciated. He delivered a powerhouse performance in Shankeru0027s Nayak which is considered to be his best performance by many.

  • 2002

    In 2002, Kapoor gave an excellent performance in the role of a fat man in Badhaai Ho Badhaai, a takeoff from the Hollywood hit, The Nutty Professor. He notched up yet another glorious performance in the Indra Kumar directed film Rishtey. In Om Jai Jagadish, he gave an amazing performance. Kapoor shared the screen with Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan for the first time in Armaan, and played his character of a neurosurgeon superbly.In 2002, Kapoor produced his first film, the comedy Badhaai Ho Badhaai, in which he also starred. It was followed by My Wifeu0027s Murder (2005), and Gandhi, My Father (2007).

The film performed moderately at the box-office, grossing Rs. 155 million in its theatrical run.

  • 2003

    In his 2003 release, Calcutta Mail, he delivered one of his best performances. His character was defined with ample scope to perform in this screenplay-driven performance and in spite of the strong supporting cast, this really came out as Kapooru0027s one-man show. He ignited the silver screen with an authoritative performance in Musafir alongside Sameera Reddy, Aditya Pancholi, Sanjay Dutt and Koena Mitra. Kapoor gave an incredibly restrained performance as the stricken husband in the thriller My Wifeu0027s Murder, which he also produced. Anees Bazmeeu0027s super-hit comedy No Entry (2005), followed for Kapoor that year. The film went on to become the highest-grossing film of the year.

Anees Bazmeeu0027s Welcome, which released on 21 December 2007 was declared the biggest success of the year. Kapooru0027s understated performance in Subhash Ghaiu0027s Black & White was highly lauded. His first release in 2008, Abbas Mustanu0027s thriller, Race became a box-office hit. Vijay Krishna Acharyau0027s, Tashan marked Anilu0027s comeback to Yash Raj Films but failed to do well at the box-office.

Anil Kapooru0027s only release of 2012 Tezz earned him favourable reviews from critics; Taran Adarsh wrote that "...itu0027s a treat watching Anil Kapoor on screen. Though the actor has been an integral part of so many movies in the past, you can never accuse him of repeating himself. Besides, he may be in his early 50s, but that hasnu0027t deterred Anil from performing the high-octane action stunts with flourish."
