Karan Kapoor (born 18 January 1962) is a former Indian film actor and model of British and Indian descent. He is the son of Shashi Kapoor and late Jennifer Kendal. His paternal grandfather was Prithviraj Kapoor and his paternal uncles are Raj Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor. His elder brother Kunal Kapoor and sister Sanjana Kapoor have also acted in some films but like him they were not very successful. His maternal grandparents, Geoffrey Kendal and Laura Kendal, were actors who toured India and Asia with their theatre group, Shakespeareana, performing Shakespeare and Shaw. The Merchant Ivory film, Shakespeare Wallah, was loosely based on the family, which starred his father and his aunt, actress Felicity Kendal. Karan later moved towards photography and decided to be a part of this profession though he worked as an actor too.
He made his debut in Shyam Benegal's critically acclaimed 1978 film Junoon which also featured his parents and both siblings. He had a minor part in his father's production 36 Chowringhee Lane (1981). He appeared in the British television series The Jewel in the Crown in 1984.
He made his debut in mainstream Bollywood films with Sultanat (1986) alongside Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Juhi Chawla. He later acted in Loha (1987) and Afsar in 1988 but did not have many offers as an actor. He also modeled major Indian brands including Bombay Dyeing.
