How The Hindi Remake Of Bhagyaraj’s ‘Andha Ezhu Naatkal’, ‘Woh Saat Din’ Changed Anil Kapoor’s Life

Anil Kapoor’s career took off after he landed his very first leading role in the 1983 film Woh Saat Din. It was a remake of a film written and directed by veteran Tamil actor-director K. Bhagyaraj,  Andha Ezhu Naatkal which was a massive hit. The movie’s humour and music are still popular among audiences in TN.

Two years after Andha Ezhu Naatkal came out, Anil Kapoor acted in the Hindi remake and this movie ended up changing his life. A twitter handle dedicated to ‘Movies and Memories’ tweeted a still from the film yesterday.

Anil Kapoor responded to this with a tweet of his own, in which he shared his journey. “From 1977 to 1983 I had been working… struggling to get that one defining chance that would change everything and #Woh7Din was that chance! A life changing moment & role! And since then it’s all been a dream come true! Till date I feel so blessed to be doing what I do!” he said.
