Dr. Anmol Kapoor, who has produced some interesting films like Patiala Dreamz (2014), Phullu (2017) and many others, has received the Global Icon 2019 award and the prestigious award of Immigrant of Distinction from Immigrant Services Calgary in Canada.
A producer and doctor, Dr. Anmol Kapoor has always produced films that have a social message backing to it. His production venture and helmed by Abhishek Saxena, Phullu (2017) release also raised women’s health issues and it starred National Award Movie Filmistaan fame Sharib Hashmi in the main lead. It was critically acclaimed and it was the first-ever film that touched the issue of menstruation and sanitary napkins. Now he is all set to bring yet another society issue-based wedding drama Saroj Ka Rishta that revolves around the challenges of a fat girl to find a groom.
Originally from India, Anmol went to the medical school in Russia, later to Canada for more schooling in Lethbridge, Edmonton, and Winnipeg. In 2010, he arrived in Calgary.
He also partnered with International Platinum Selling Artist Raqhav and released a single with Abhishek Bachchan, Nelly and the video was shot in Africa, where they raised issues of lack of electricity in Africas continent and other countries. The video was very well received and Until the Sun Comes up was a hit song which helped raise awareness about this important issue.
This year, we are launching BioTech products amongst many of the products but many others that are in pipeline. It would help the doctors, who are starting the startups to help heart patients. In Los Angeles, an Indian website launched his magazine cover page of Passion Vista amid a grand ceremony in the presence of actress Neetu Chandra.
Expressing his emotions after receiving the award, Dr. Anmol Kapoor says, “My work focuses on heart disease prevention, particularly among the South Asian community and women. It is quite difficult and challenging to raise awareness.”
“Doctors in clinical settings aren’t used to looking at it from the patient’s angle. We’re always giving them advice and treatments but sometimes we fail to understand their background, their ethnicities, and their risk factors. Some have more demands from a heart disease point of view and some have less. The challenge also is making minorities and immigrants aware of the resources available for them. They only come in contact with health-care professionals when the damage is done. I want to make them aware earlier, so we can prevent disease and the damage,” he adds.
It is interesting to know that he helped in establishing a clinic in Marlborough run by nurses, that deals with some 200 heart failure patients, thereby taking the strain off hospitals. He’s also involved in developing an app that will allow patients to be triaged at home. It’s a groundbreaking project, deploying artificial intelligence that will undergo a clinical trial.
