Early life

Supriya was born to Kathiyawadi Gujarati theater artiste, and veteran actor, Dina Pathak and a Punjabi father, Baldev Pathak, dressmaker to the stars Rajesh Khanna and Dilip Kumar. [3] She has one elder sister, Ratna Pathak, also a theatre artist and a film actor. She grew up in Parsi Colony in Dadar, Mumbai, [4] and attended the J. B. Vachha High school. She has a bachelor's degree in Fine art, specialising in Bharatanatyam, from the Nalanda Dance Research Centre, University of Mumbai. [4] [5]

Career

Pathak's first foray into acting was under her mother's direction with the revival of the play Maina Gurjari, which Dina Pathak had acted in previously. [4] This was followed by a play with Dinesh Thakur titled Biwiyon Ka Madersa (based on a play by French playwright Molière), which was staged at the Prithvi Theatre. It was here that Jennifer Kendall (the late wife of Shashi Kapoor) spotted her and recommended her to Shyam Benegal for their home production Kalyug (1981), an adaptation of the epic Mahabharata . Her portrayal of Subhadra won her the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress. She then performed in Vijeta (1982), Bazaar (1982), Masoom (1983) and Mirch Masala (1985). She had a minor role in the biopic Gandhi (1982) and starred in the 1988 French film, The Bengali Night . She appeared in Raakh in 1989.[ citation needed ] In 1985 she played title role in Malayalam movie Akalathe Ambili. [6]

In 1994, her husband, Pankaj Kapur and she launched their own TV production house, Grass Company. Mohandas B.A.L.L.B was the first serial they produced and acted in, under the banner.[ citation needed ]

After an 11-year hiatus from acting, she starred in the 2005 film Sarkar , followed by its sequel, Sarkar Raj in 2008. She portrayedf a subservient mother who tries hard to fill the generation gap with her son in Wake Up Sid (2009). Filmfare magazine called her rendering of the sinister Dhankor Baa in 2013's Ram-Leela as the "watershed of her career". Carry On Kesar (2016) was her first Gujarati film. [8]
