35 Years of Eeshwar: Anil Kapoor celebrates K Vishwanath directorial

Actor Anil Kapoor celebrated 35 years of his popular and classic film Eeshwar, which was released in 1989. The actor took to his social media handles in which he revisited his memories of the film with a poster and a movie still. Interestingly, Eeshwar is a Hindi remake of a Telugu film titled Swathi Mutyam.

The actor had previously spoken about how the foundation of his career was built on films, which were a remake of movies made in Tamil and Telugu. Anil Kapoor has also often remembered the late director-writer K Vishwanath, who directed Swathi Mutyam as well as Eeshwar. He recalled how K Vishwanath was one of the directors who contributed to his career. “I got to learn a lot from him and he was truly one of the greats of his time,” the cinema icon had said.

On the work front, Anil Kapoor was last seen in Fighter, which went on to become a box-office hit with a collection of Rs 352 crore. He recently received the Dadasaheb Phalke Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Animal. Directed by Sandeep Reddy Vanga, it was released on December 1, 2023.
