Having a child artist in the film is something that adds a pinch of cuteness and innocence in the movie! Right from the beginning of the Indian cinema, there have been innumerable child artists who had worked in the cinema and entertained the audience with their innocence.
Though many of them grew up and went on to make it big in the industry, but some spread their magic on screen and vanished from the industry. But today, we are going to introduce you to the cutest child artist in the film Judaai.
The child artist who played the son of Anil Kapoor and Sridevi in the 1997 film Judaai, is the actor Omkar Kapoor. He has worked as a child artist in several movies like Judwaa, Hero no.1, Ghoonghat, Masoom, Mela, etc.
Kapoor has started his career with Masoom, where he has received immense popularity as a child artist and become the most favorite child artist of that time. Later, he got a chance to work with several big stars in the Indian film industry, like Govinda, Anil Kapoor, Urmila Matondkar, Salman Khan, and Sridevi.
His dance and naughty looks on the song “Chhota Bacha Jaan Ke” is still afresh in the minds of people and his performance was loved by all. This was perhaps the most loved song of the movie Masoom.
Apart from this, Omkar played the childhood character of Salman in the iconic film Judwaa. His heart throbbing performance in the movie was praised and loved by all.
Omkar Kapoor had also assisted Bollywood directors like Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Farah Khan, and Ahmed Khan, but he really wanted to be an actor and hence gave many auditions, of which he bagged Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2.
It was a 2015 Indian Hindi-language romantic comedy film and a sequel to the 2011 film Pyaar Ka Punchnama and was directed by Luv Ranjan. He played the character of Tarun Thakur in the film and his performance was well-received by all and made the drool over him!!
He was also seen sharing screen space with veteran actor Rishi Kapoor in the 2019 Hindi-language comedy-drama film ‘Jhoota Kahin Ka’ directed by Smeep Kang, which also starred Lillette Dubey, Manoj Joshi, and Sunny Singh. It reunited Omkar with Sunny, with whom he starred in Pyaar Ka Punchnama 2.
Omkar was born on 31 October 1986 in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India into a Hindu family and has a brother Vikas Kapoor who is said to have worked as Salman Khan’s manager for around 8 years. Omkar did his graduation from Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics, Mumbai.
