Tusshar Kapoor made his debut in the Hindi film industry in 2001, with a film called “Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai”, in which he played a boy next door and co starred with Kareena Kapoor. The film was a mediocre success and launched him as a young star son in the industry. But Tusshar could not really make it big in the industry, as he delivered an unimpressive performance in “Gayab”, a 2004 release. He had the potential but did not get offers which were good enough. However, his performances in movies like “Golmaal”, “Khakee” and “Shootout at Lokhandwala”, “Golmaal 3” and “Golmaal Returns” proved that he could really act. He particularly exhibited his stronghold in comedy with the films of “Golmaal” series and “Kya Kool Hai Hum”. One of the best roles of his career came in the super hit film “The Dirty Picture”, a movie from the home banner of his sister. He has worked in a number of films such as “Dhol”, “Life partner”, “Love U Mr Kalakaar”, “Hum Tum Aur Shabana” and “Shor in the City”, but has not received much success in the industry. Currently, the actor is not having much work in hand.
