Kapoor Haveli is a residential building in the city of Peshawar, in modern-day Pakistan. It was home of one generation of the Kapoor family of India. It was constructed before the partition of India, between 1918 and 1922, by Dewan Basheswarnath Kapoor, father of Prithviraj Kapoor, the first member of the family to enter film industry. Among the notable members of the family, Trilok Kapoor, Prithiviraj's younger brother and his son, Raj Kapoor were born in the building. The Kapoors are Punjabi Hindus. After the Partition of India in 1947, members of the family, like other Hindus, left the city and the building. It was purchased in an auction in 1968 by a local individual from Charsadda town in the North West Frontier Province under the settlement clause and then sold to a resident of Peshawar. It is now being converted into a museum by IMGC Global Entertainment in Pakistan with the support of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government.
