“After that (Satte Pe Satta), I was involved in a film named Mawaali in the year 1983. Kadar Khan slapped me hard when I was giving my first shot in the film; I fell to the ground. In the second shot, the same thing happened to me: Aruna Irani slapped me, and I fell to the ground. “A similar incident happened to me a third time,” Shakti said. Shakti was accompanied on the show by Goofy Paintal, Asrani, and Tiku Talsania.

Shakti Kapoor then turned nervous and upset because he thought he was not fit for Bollywood. “The film’s director was K Bapaiah, and Kader Khan was in the lead role of that film. Then I went to Kader Khan and asked him to book my evening ticket. I don’t want to work further on this film. It seems my film career is over, and I am still unmarried as well. Shakti further added that he stayed in the industry due to the advice of Veeru Devgan.

Shakti also talked about how he got the film. “I played the role of a comedian in the film Satte Pe Satta with Goofy Paintal. It was a remarkable film, so when Raj Sippy contacted me for a comedy role, I felt like, “If I am being praised for my villainous roles, then why are they liking me?” “A comedian as well?”

Shakti Kapoor ruled the Hindi movies in the 80s and 90s for his different kinds of roles, such as negative roles and comedian roles. The evergreen Shakti had an impressive career in Bollywood and worked with all the top stars of the industry. He was recently spotted in the Malayalam film Lucifer and also featured in the web series Guilty Minds, released earlier this year.
