Pankaj Kapur birthday special: The versatile actor’s Jalwa continues at 59!

In his three decade long career, one of the most cherished thespians of B-town has acted in over 40 films and continues to charm us even today with his jalwa… or shall we say, histrionics!

Born on May 29, 1954, Pankaj Kapur turns 59 today. Over the years, the Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron star has been known for his versatile acting and squeaky clean image. And just like his image, his movie titles too come across as quite clean except a few. When we convert these Hindi film titles into English, some of them get dirty (sorry Pankaj ji!) and both the meaning and the sense here got lost in translation.

Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron
Going too two friends



Ek Doctor Ki Maut
One doctor’s death

Ram Jaane
Lord knows


The Blue Umbrella
Woh neela chatri

Halla Bol


Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola
Matru’s Bijlee’s Mandola

BollywoodLife wishes the veteran actor great luck in his work, loads of happiness in his life and a very happy birthday!
