After chalking out Bollywood’s first family – the Kapoor’s family tree, we thought of doing the same for the other Kapoors of Bollywood who have also contributed to Indian cinema in a major way. Yes, we’re talking about Surinder Kapoor and family. Take a look at this good looking family –

1st generation:

Surinder Kapoor

He was the one who introduced this family to the world of Bollywood. Surinder Kapoor started his career as Geeta Bali’s secretary and went on to become a producer. He also happens to be a distant cousin of Prithiviraj Kapoor. A recipient of the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke award, he served as President of the Film & Television Producers Guild of India for 6 years. He married Nirmal Devi and has four children – Boney, Anil, Reena and Sanjay.

2nd generation:

Boney Kapoor

Like his father, even Boney decided to become a producer. He has produced super hit blockbusters like Mr. India, Pukar, No Entry, Wanted and many others. Boney married Mona Shourie with whom he has two children – Arjun and Anshula. The couple got divorced after a few years. Boney then got married to the glamour queen of those times, Sridevi. The duo has two daughters – Jhanvi and Khushi. Mona Kapoor was the CEO of Future Studios and a film producer. She died after a long battle with cancer at the age of 47.

Anil Kapoor

The true flag bearer of this Kapoor khandaan, Anil Kapoor was a superstar of his times. Having completed almost 30 years in the film industry successfully and having given many memorable performances – Anil is one jhakaas star! He married Sunita Bhavnani and the couple has three children – Sonam, Rhea and Harshvardhan. He recently started his production house, Anil Kapoor Film Co. which produced Aisha and is now all set to introduce 24, the TV series in India.

Reena Kapoor Marwah

Surinder Kapoor’s daughter, Reena stayed away from the limelight. She got married to Sandeep Marwah of Marwah Films and Video Studios. The couple has two sons – Mohit and Akshay.

Sanjay Kapoor

Unfortunately, Sanjay’s career never took off the way his brother’s did. Even though he gave a few hits in the beginning of his career, he slowly disappeared from the scene. He then ventured into production and is seldom seen doing cameos. Sanjay married Maheep Sandhu and the couple has two children – Shanaya and Jehaan.

3rd generation:

Sonam Kapoor

Sonam Kapoor led the way for the youngest generation of this Kapoor family. She made her debut with Saawariya and has been on the road to success ever since. Bollywood’s fashionista and actress, Sonam also happens to be the spokesperson for the French beauty brand L’Oreal.

What is Ranveer Singh doing here you ask? Well Ranveer’s father is Sunita's (Sonam’s mother’s) first cousin which makes Ranveer and Sonam second cousins! A small world, indeed!

Arjun Kapoor

Boney’s son, Arjun made his debut as an actor with Ishaqzaade after assisting in movies like Kal Ho Na Ho and Salaam-E-Ishq. Termed as Bollywood’s newest angry young man, Arjun made a promising debut and has often been compared to his Anil chachu. His sister Anshula recently graduated from Columbia University and now works with Google.

Rhea Kapoor

Anil’s second daughter, Rhea is a producer and has also designed Sonam’s costumes in the past. Even though the two sisters are as different as chalk and cheese, they are very fond of each other. Her father and sister are famous actors but Rhea’s happier staying behind the scenes!

Harshvardhan Kapoor

Anil’s 21 year old son, Harshvardhan recently returned from the US after studying screenplay writing and acting. We hear that he has turned down offers by directors like Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra and Vikramaditya Motwane in the past and might consider directing instead. Currently, he is focusing on assisting Anurag Kashyap for his next film, Bombay Velvet.

Mohit Marwah

Sandeep and Reena’s son, Mohit is all set to make his Bollywood debut. Recently spotted in many occasions, Mohit garnered attention due to his good looks. He has already acted in a short film produced by Karan Johar and has managed to impress as well! It won’t be too long until he joins his cousins in Bollywood!

They had divorced. For few yrs she stayed with her FIL n then bought her own place...get ur facts straight.
.----------------
mona refused to give divorce to boney that's why boney and sri's marriage was not legal until mona died.
------------------------------------------------
Darling they were very much divorced. She bought her own studios later on. pLus she too was involved with some businessman. its just that they were not public. no one is saint in this world.

They were not divorced. rest what u said is true..

Harsh, mohit n jhanvi are too good.

Best are mohit n jhanvi...can't wait for them.
--------------------------
agree

There was no divorce between mona and boney ever. They were only separated. Boney did her funeral rites along with the kids. She died within a year of having cancer.

I don't find any of these guys good looking. and only sonam is pretty, the rest of the females are average

Nice family! My fav Kapoor from this khandan is Anil. I love him from my childhood days!
BTW I didn't know that Ranveer is Sonam's relative. It means she can't do a romantic movie with him.

Harsh is gonna be a superstar

both families have their embarrassing personalities..but this one does not have as much of a legacy..
____________________________________
This one has more producers and less actors. Anil is the only one from the previous generation who acts and if you don't consider him an iconic and great actor, then I really don't know what to say? As for the new gen, Arjun is just 2 films old and Sonam has just recently tasted success and critical acclaim(Although she is a fashion icon). Sridevi is also a great actress. So yes they don't have legacy like the family of Raj kapoor but they have a unique place of their own and they seem very happy in it. I know the moment they wrote the post that people will be screaming some nasty things and I was right. People actually won't be at peace unless they have said something offensive about these Kapoors although most of these people have stayed out of major trouble.

Mohit Marwah is sooo sooo hawtttt

nice post

both families have their embarrassing personalities..but this one does not have as much of a legacy..

Anil- sonam, harsh
Boney- jhanvi , arjun
Sanjay- his daughter
Reena- mohit

Mohit marwah
Harshvardhan
Jhanvi

Love all three...

no offense but Jhanvi, Khushi and Sridevi are not kapoor material.

I like these Kapoor's better!

one word: NEPOTISM

---> 'hahahahahaha,no wonder people hate salman fans'

I mentioned Ranveer because this post initially had Ranveer too as a cousin of Sonam's mom, which Ranveer always deny and claims to be an 'outsider'. calm down anon.

The only person who caught my attention was Anshula who ' Gradutaed from Columbia & working for Google" ...now that is some achievement !!!!

Owaid's picture

lol at Ranveer, he thought he could get away with the "outsider tag".
..........................................................hahahahahaha,no wonder people hate salman fans

For those who says Ranveer 'didn't make it on his own'.. Seriously, you don't know anything about his journey.. He was attending auditions to auditions and competed with other hundreds of people. He got rejections but finally his hardwork paid off. Have connection or not, he began his steps in the industry with his own effort.

Beside, after Band Bajaa Baraat everyone started to recognize him just with his name.

I dont think Ranveer would have got help from Kapoor's
Mohit and Harshavardhan look so much alike !

There was no divorce between mona and boney ever. They were only separated. Boney did her funeral rites along with the kids. She died within a year of having cancer.

There were rumours that Ranveer's dad had partly financed Band Baaja Baraat for the Chopras to launch him as a leading man. It may not be true ,but u need to be affluent with a few crores to throw around on a movie ... He will certainly not be from a middle class family. For some reason these Kapoors were never acknowledged by the other Kapoors.

Reena Kapoor looks EXACTLY like Sanjay Kapoor.

"Anshula recently graduated from Columbia University and now works with Google."
Cool!

Woho! Thank you for the post .. It's awesome

And there was me thinking Ranveer had made it without any connections... hmmm! I knew he didn't bad that Yash Raj deal without any help.

I want to see more original, unique, totally no connections young people given a chance in bollywood in the vein of SRK, Akshay and Vidya.

----------

You forgot Priyanka

bollywood first family way better looking!! I don't even know any of them expect sonam Anil

But ... So... Ranveer didn't "make it on his own"? Cuz I find it hard to believe that you can be related to the Kapoors and have edge over others. Ranveer is working with Arjun in Gunday and in interviews, he's spoken like it was the first time they met!
________________________________________________________________________________

It says that Ranveer is related to Sonam through her mom's side, so no he's not related to Arjun at all actually, and Gunday could have very well been the first time they met because technically while they are both related to Sonam, they are not related to eachother

both Sonam and Harsh look like a mix of their mom and dad, while Rhea is a copy of Reena Kapoor !!
and OMG Sridevi is Arjun's step mother ???? this is very new to me.

The "other" Kapoor family lol, so there is only "the" Kapoor family which Kareena and Karishma belong to... everyone else is leftovers

@And there was me thinking Ranveer had made it without any connections... hmmm! I knew he didn't bag that Yash Raj deal without any help.

Yes, Ranveer will still be called an outsider. Don't think Sunita Kapoor has any clout in YashRaj movies. If her recommendation of a second generation relative to Yahraj matters, why wouldn't she recommend her own son? Harsh has yet to make a bollywood debut

Anshula recently graduated from Columbia University and now works with Google.

Great achievement!

@anon
Uhm..Better in which sense
1st family is more talented,older and they all are better looking than these weirdos(apart from sonam)

Sonam looks cute but her brother Harshvardhan doesn't have the good looks like Anil had.

Ranveer is working with Arjun in Gunday and in interviews, he's spoken like it was the first time they met!
________________________________________

How is that surprising. I mean, do you know your second cousin's cousin from her father's side??!

Ranveer got cast in BBB after many auditions, and because he paired well with Anushka. I doubt being such a far relative of Sonam's helped.

Guys, I doubt him being Sonam's second cousin helped Ranveer. I mean, do you think he went to YRF studios, pronounced he was Sonam's cousin and bagged the role?? Please!

He got the role in Band Baaja Baaraat because he was the BEST Bittoo Sharma.

If he was cast as the lead in Anil Kapoor's home production at a younger age, then I would say nepotism helped.

But in this case, I still think he got the role due to talent.

I know who wrote this comment!!!

oh man I remember having a conversation with harsh kapoor once.. he seemed shy :P

This kapoor family is better than the other so-called "first family of bollywood".

Sridevi had her eldest daughter when Boney was still married to his first wife Mona. In fact they divorced because of Sridevi.

oh man I remember having a conversation with harsh kapoor once.. he seemed shy :P

Cool.

Love this family anil is the best

Is that Arjun, Jhanvi, Khushi, Sri & Boney all in the same pic with the rest of Kapoors I see?

Shanaya Kapoor will be a tall stunner when she grows up. She is beautiful actress material.

And there was me thinking Ranveer had made it without any connections... hmmm! I knew he didn't bad that Yash Raj deal without any help.

I want to see more original, unique, totally no connections young people given a chance in bollywood in the vein of SRK, Akshay and Vidya.

In whole generations I found only Sonam a little bit pretty
others have so much weird noses

But ... So... Ranveer didn't "make it on his own"? Cuz I find it hard to believe that you can be related to the Kapoors and have edge over others. Ranveer is working with Arjun in Gunday and in interviews, he's spoken like it was the first time they met!
