Sonam Kapoor’s doting dad, actor Anil Kapoor, has often openly admired his daughter’s acting skills. Now the 57-year-old wants to share the screen space with Sonam, however, not as her father.
“We keep getting a lot of offers but nothing great has come our way. We really want to work together in a film but I don’t want to play her dad... I mean, won’t that be really boring?” asks the actor, adding, that he’s looking for something more interesting.
“It should be something very dramatic. If I end up playing the obvious role (of her dad), then what new are we offering to the audience?” he says.
The actor is also co-producing the remake of the 1980 Hrishikesh Mukherjee hit, Khoobsoorat, with Sonam in the lead. “I think Sonam would do a great job with that role. I am really looking forward to seeing her in that role. she is a brilliant actor,” says Anil, who has acted in over 100 films, including Hollywood flicks such as the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionnaire (2009), and Mission Impossible — Ghost Protocol (2011).
