Biography by Nathan Southern

An Indian actor who specialized almost exclusively in Bollywood productions, Tusshar Kapoor debuted onscreen in the early 2000s and amassed a substantial acting resumé. From project to project, Kapoor seemed equally at home in everything from romantic comedies to crime dramas -- any material, in fact, that demanded a strong and compelling male lead. Early efforts included the 2003 Yeh Dil, the 2005 Insaan, and the 2006 Golmaal: Fun Unlimited. With two popular 2007 efforts, Om Shanti Om and Kya Love Story Hai, Kapoor achieved a substantial amount of international crossover appeal. He then teamed up with director Ashwani Dheer and co-stars Sunil Shetty and Paresh Rawal for the lightweight crime comedy One Two Three.
