Sanjay Kapoor on Thursday shared a special throwback post on Instagram much to the delight of Bollywood fans. The image is from the actor’s first photoshoot ever. The photograph clicked at Mumbai’s Madh Island dates back to 1987. In the frame, he is seen posing with actress Amala Akkineni. While Sanjay Kapoor looks dapper in his striped, blue shirt and a pair of white pants, Amala is seen in a chic deep blue dress. Sanjay Kapoor, in the caption, revealed that Amala would have been his first co-star, but their film, unfortunately, fell through. “Throwback to my first photo shoot ever with the beautiful, talented Amala, who would have been my first co-star, but our film unfortunately fell through,” read the caption. It was accompanied by hashtags such as great memories, 1987, and JP Singhal.
Amala Akkineni, who is married to actor Nagarjuna, started off her acting career with a Tamil film titled Mythili Yennai Kadali, directed by noted filmmaker T. Rajendar. The film was released in 1986, a year before her photoshoot with Sanjay Kapoor.
On the other hand, Sanjay Kapoor made his acting debut in 1995 with the film Prem, co-starring Tabu. Reacting to the post, Sanjay Kapoor’s wife Maheep Kapoor mentioned that at the time of this photoshoot, she was just 14 years old. “1987 !!! I was 14 yrs old at the time,” she wrote. Actor Sham Mashalkar also commented on the post: “Bahut badhiya (well done) Sanjay Ji.”
