Actor Ben Kingsley, famous for his portrayal of everyone from crime lords to Gandhi, has an estimated net worth of approximately $40 million dollars. But his net worth didn't just come from Gandhi and Schindler's List - he has an impressive and eclectic resume spanning many years in Hollywood and elsewhere. Kingsley's career began on the stage, and he's remained loyal to the theater even after becoming a big movie star. He's appeared in productions with the Royal National Theatre, and with acclaimed theatrical director Peter Brook. His first film was in the year 1972, entitled Fear is the Key. A decade later, his biggest claim to fame came in the form of Gandhi, an old-fashioned historical epic which found Kingsley completely disappearing into his role, seeming to embody Gandhi in the eyes of audiences everywhere. Since Gandhi, Kinsley has not been content to rest on his laurels, appearing in such diverse projects as the Sherlock Holmes spoof Without A Clue, the gangster comedy Sexy Beast, and the stoner-nostalgia film The Wackness. But his most famous post-Gandhi performance would have to be in Schindler's List, as Schindler's loyal accountant and moral compass. Ben Kingsley is one of the best actors in Hollywood (or anywhere), so it's a sure thing that he will provide his fans with many more memorable characters in the coming years.
Sir Ben Kingsley, CBE (born Krishna Pandit Bhanji;Gujarati:?????? ????? ?????; 31 December 1943) is an English actor who has won an Oscar, BAFTA, Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards in his career. He is known for starring as Mohandas Gandhi in the film Gandhi in 1982, for which he won the Academy Award for Best Actor. He is also known for his performances in the films Schindler's List (1993), Sexy Beast (2000), House of Sand and Fog (2003), and Hugo (2011).
Kingsley was born Krishna Pandit Bhanji in Snainton, North Yorkshire, England, the son of Anna Lyna Mary (nee Goodman), an actress and model, and Rahimtulla Harji Bhanji, a medical doctor.
Kingsley's father, born in Kenya, is of Gujarati Indian descent; Kingsley's paternal grandfather was a spice trader who had moved from India to Zanzibar, where Kingsley's father lived until moving to England at the age of 14. Kingsley's mother, born out of wedlock, was "loath to speak of her background". Kingsley's maternal grandfather was believed by the family to have been a Russian or German Jew, while Kingsley's maternal grandmother was English and worked in the garment district of East London.
Kingsley grew up in Pendlebury, in Salford. He was educated at Manchester Grammar School, where one of his classmates was the actor Robert Powell. He later studied at the University of Salford and at Pendleton College, which later became home to the Ben Kingsley Theatre.
Kingsley began his acting career on stage, but made a transition to film roles early on. Despite this focus on film, he continued to act on the stage, playing Mosca in Peter Hall's 1977 production of Ben Jonson's Volpone for the Royal National Theatre, and in Peter Brook's acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night's Dream. At about this time, he changed his name from Krishna Pandit Bhanji to Ben Kingsley, fearing that a foreign name would hamper his career; he took his stage surname from his paternal grandfather's nickname, "King Clove".
