Inder Kumar had started his Bollywood career with the movie Masoom (1996) and worked in around 20 movies as supporting actor. Though the actor had a promising debut in the industry with various hit movies in his kitty like Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Maa Tujhe Salaam and Wanted, later he faced various problems.
