Anil Kapoor made his debut as an actor in "Woh Saat Din" in 1983 after doing small roles in some Hindi, Telugu and Kannada films.

Talking more about the days, he said: "I completed my acting course but I wasn't able to get any work so, there was a show which was going abroad. In that show, there was Zarina Wahab Ji, Padmini Kapila, Hemant Kumar Saab and Nutan ji. When they were ready to go that time, they needed some background dancers so, I went there as a background dancer and I think, I used to get 15 pounds for one show at that time. I am thankful to all of them who gave me the opportunity to work in those shows."
