Boney Kapoor is a 69-years-old (born on 11 November 1955) Bollywood Film producer. He was born as Achal Kapoor to a Punjabi family of filmmakers, who migrated to India from Peshawar, Pakistan. His family initially stayed at Raj Kapoor’s car garage when they landed in Mumbai. In those struggling days, his family even lived at the ‘chawl’ area of Mumbai.

He inherited the production skills from his father, who himself was a renowned film producer. Though his brothers – Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor became actors, he carries forward the legacy of his father by choosing to become a producer.

Family, Caste & Wife

Boney Kapoor hails from a Punjabi-Khatri family with roots in Pakistan. His father, Late Surinder Kapoor, was a renowned producer and his mother, Nirmal Kapoor was a homemaker.

He has 3 younger brothers – Anil Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor, and a younger sister, Reena Kapoor.

He had his first marriage with TV Producer, Mona Kapoor in 1983. Everything went well till Sridevi started staying at Boney’s house and used to consider Boney as her brother.

But destiny had some other plans, as with time Boney and Sridevi came closer and she was got pregnant with Boney’s child.

This was an obvious shocker for Mona, whose marriage broke down after it. In 1996, Boney married Sridevi after leaving his first wife, Mona and kids, Arjun and Anshula.

The couple were later blessed with 2 daughters, Janhvi Kapoor, and Khushi Kapoor. It was once reported that Janhvi was born out of wedlock; however, Boney Kapoor denied such claims in an interview later. While talking about this, in an interview, Boney Kapoor said,

My second marriage, my marriage with Sri (took place in Shirdi). We got married on June 2. We exchanged vows, we spent a night there and it was only in January when her pregnancy was seen that we had no choice, but to marry publicly. It took place in Shirdi, on June 2. (But), in public, we were married only in January (1997). That is why some scribes still write she (Janhvi) was born before marriage, something like that.”

His married life derailed on 24 February 2018, when Sridevi passed away in Dubai after suffering a massive cardiac arrest.


Like his father, he always wanted to become a producer and started his career as an assistant editor in the 1970s. Later, he started working as an assistant director under Shakti Samanta. His first production, Hum Paanch (1980) was a multi-lingual remake, which later became a trendsetter in Bollywood.

He reached the heights of his production career with his sci-fi film Mr. India starring his brother Anil Kapoor and his future wife Sridevi. The film became a cult classic in India cinema for various reasons, such as – Sridevi’s song “Hawa Hawaii”, Amrish Puri’s one-liner “Mogambo khush hua” (Mogambo is pleased), and the concept of an invisible man.

Some of the biggest hits include – Mr. India, Judaai, Pukar, Company, No Entry, and Wanted.


Silverware Linked to Boney Kapoor

On 8 April 2023, at the check post near Hebbalu toll in Karnataka’s Davangere, the Election Commission of India (ECI) seized 66 kg silverware worth Rs 39 lakhs allegedly belonging to Boney Kapoor.

A Suspect in Sridevi’s Murder

Boney Kapoor was clouded in controversy following Sridevi’s death in Dubai on 24 February 2018. He was interrogated by the Dubai police regarding Sridevi’s death as he was the main suspect in the case. While talking about this, in an interview, Bonney revealed that he went through multiple tests including a lie detector test that was conducted by the Dubai police; however, he was not found guilty. In the interview, he revealed that Sridevi used to follow a strict diet to be in shape and look good on screen. While calling Sridevi’s death an accidental death, he added that she had initially fainted many times, and a doctor had said that she was having a low BP issue. Bonney mentioned that actor Nagarjuna had told him that Sridevi once fainted on the set of a film. Boney Kapoor, in the interview, said,

It was not a natural death; it was an accidental death. I had decided not to speak about it because I spoke about it for almost 24 or 48 hours together when I was being investigated and interrogated. In fact, the officers said we had to go through this because there was a lot of pressure from the Indian media. And they discovered there was no foul play. I went through all the tests, including lie detector tests and all those things. And then, of course, the report which came clearly stated it was accidental.”
