The Eighties heartthrob Karan Kapoor may have turned 56 today but he seems timeless. Born on January 17, 1962, to actor Shashi Kapoor and his wife Jennifer Kendal, Karan is surely blessed with smoldering looks. After a brief stint in modeling and films, Karan took up professional photography and went on to live a low profile life in Chelsea, London with his wife Lorna and children Aliya and Zach. Karan Kapoor started his career modeling with Bombay Dyeing and it turned him into one of the most sought out models in early Eighties and he followed it up with a career in films.

But more about that later.

On Karan Kapoor's birthday, take a look at some of his best pictures, courtesy social media (you can thank us later):

Karan Kapoor, while growing up in and around Mumbai, had closely watched the life of the Anglo-Indian community. And, before fixating over this series, Karan had done a lot of research during which he traveled through various parts of India, capturing the fading Portuguese influence.

Of his Bollywood journey - Karan Kapoor's mainstream Bollywood debut was alongside Dharmendra, Sunny Deol, Sridevi and Juhi Chawla in 1986 release Sultanat. Before that, when he was all of 16, he featured in 1978 film Junoon alongside his parents and siblings - (father) Shashi Kapoor, (mother) Jennifer Kendal, (sister) Sanjana Kapoor, and elder brother Kunal Kapoor.

In 1981, he assisted and also acted in 36 Chowringhee Lane produced by father Shashi Kapoor and also starring his mother Jennifer Kapoor, grandfather Geoffrey Kendal and sister Sanjana Kapoor. He acted in two more films, Loha, and Afsar, then bid adieu to Indian cinema.

Happy birthday, Karan Kapoor!
