Actor-filmmaker Anil Kapoor is happy to see that women are finally getting their due in male-dominated Bollywood. And one girl in particular is making him proud — younger daughter Rhea, who has just wrapped up her maiden
production venture Aisha.
“I’ve always believed in different qualities between men and women; I have always found women superior to men. I am not saying it for the sake of it,” he said. Anil has two daughters, Sonam and Rhea, and a son, Harsh. “The way girls are coming up, taking charge, calling the shots... just at the age of 23, Rhea made the whole film. I am very happy, not only for Sonam and Rhea, I feel happy for all girls,” he added.
Elder daughter Sonam, too, is shining on the silver screen ever since she made her debut in Saawariya. Rhea, on the other hand, worked as an assistant on the movie Wake Up Sid and decided to remain behind the camera.
Anil, who has been in showbiz for three decades, says: “What I like the most is to see how times have changed. Years ago, in the film industry and show business, there used to be only men. I used to feel bad about why girls were not treated equally. Now things have changed all over the world, specially in India.”
Anil himself rarely ventures into production because he is more passionate about acting. After British director Danny Boyle’s Slumdog Millionaire, he is doing an American TV series, 24.
