Despite being 50 years old and having been in the industry for almost three decades, actor Anil Kapoor has a lot in his lap — Bollywood projects, international success and production ventures. Here’s Mr India speaking about all that matters at the moment — his kids, films and more.
Talking about what’s kept him going, he says, “I just love acting. I have been lucky that I am getting to do great work.” Looking dapper in a shirt and grey-coloured waistcoat and a spiked hairdo, Anil, whose upcoming home production venture Aisha releases on August 6, said, “It’s a very young and fresh movie.Abhay and Sonam look so great together. I am very happy with the movie. I feel ki zyada se zyada kya hoga, mistake hi karenge naa, usse sikhengehi (at most they’ll make mistakes, but it’ll only help them learn more)." About his son Harsh, he says "He is quite young and is studying in Los Angeles. Though he wants to write and direct a film, let’s wait and watch."
With younger daughter Rhea getting into production, mean that he will do more home productions? “I can think of producing one or two films a year now. I used to produce films instinctively, but now all the productions that we will undertake will be original concepts. Moreover, I wasn’t careful about money
Now I’ll be,” he says. Talking about the success of TV series 24 and other international projects, Kapoor says, “It is a cult show and I’m very happy with the response. There are few things in the pipe-line with Sophia Loren's son and Ben Stiller, but nothing has finalised yet.”
On the Bollywood front, he says, “I am doing No Problem. It’s a fun film with Anees Bazmee. Then there is Race 2, No Entry 2 and probably Mr. India 2 — all sequels!
