Shakti Kapoor has acted in over 700 movies but, as a bad-ass villain or as a side kick!
Either of the two, his performances still are the topic of discussion amongst his fans. Shakti’s role of key villains in films like ‘Himmatwala’ and ‘Hero’ drew attention towards him. 80s and 90s have witnessed the reign of Shakti as the “ferocious” villain.
However, Shakti Kapoor didn’t restrict his talent of playing ONLY negative or villainous roles.
