Anil Kapoor’s Iconic Dialogue 'Jhakaas' Turns 38: Celebrating the Legacy of 'Yudh'

Anil Kapoor is a name that has been synonymous with the Indian film industry for over four decades now. He has starred in numerous successful films, won multiple awards, and left an indelible mark on the hearts of millions of moviegoers. One such film that cemented his place as a bonafide star and introduced us to his iconic dialogue 'jhakaas' is 'Yudh.' This year, the film has clocked 38 years in Hindi cinema, and it's time to celebrate the legacy of this cult classic.

The Plot of Yudh

In 1985, producer Gulshan Rai’s son Rajiv Rai made his directorial debut with the release of 'Yudh'. The movie features a star-studded cast, with Anil Kapoor in a double role, Jackie Shroff, Hema Malini, Shatrughan Sinha, Danny Denzongpa, Nutan, Pran, and Tina Munim. The film's storyline revolves around a courageous police officer portrayed by Anil Kapoor, who makes the ultimate sacrifice while trying to protect Savitri and her twin boys from a vicious gangster.

The Iconic Dialogue 'Jhakaas'

'Yudh' gave Bollywood one of its most iconic dialogues, 'jhakaas.' The word, which roughly translates to 'fantastic' or 'amazing,' has since become synonymous with Anil Kapoor's screen persona. His character in the film, despite facing numerous hardships and challenges, never loses his sense of style and humour. Anil Kapoor delivered the line 'jhakaas' with his trademark charisma, and it stuck with audiences, who still use the word today.
