Bollywood veteran Anil Kapoor made his acting debut in the late 1970s and has starred in many blockbusters throughout his career. While the actor is still one of the most beloved stars of Bollywood, his 1987 film Mr. India is still considered one of his biggest hits. The actor's nephew Jahaan Kapoor, son of actor Sanjay Kapoor, recently recreated his iconic look and received praise from fans and his entire family.

Sanjay Kapoor recently took to his Instagram handle to share a series of photos of his son Jahaan Kapoor dressed as Anil Kapoor's iconic character Mr India for a fancy dress competition. In the photos, Jahaan Kapoor wore a brown coloured shirt underneath a matching coat, black pants and a brown hat to recreate the Mr. India look.

Sharing the photos, Sanjay Kapoor wrote, "Mr India @jahaankapoor26 fancydress Mogambo Khush Hua, Styling and idea @sanjaykapoor2500."
