Actor Anil Kapoor has turned idealistic. The 51-year-old, who has been actively involved with NGOs since the last six years, has now voiced concern for the tradition of human trafficking in Bharatpur. The actor visited the Capital recently as a partner for the CNN Freedom Project documentary, titled, Trapped by Tradition.
The documentary, that airs on Saturday, throws light on the practice that Kapoor says shook him to the core. “Human trafficking is unpardonable. We should do whatever we can to eradicate it. I was moved to tears when I heard about the plight of these women. We have to help them understand there are other options,” said Kapoor during a visit to the HT House on Wednesday.
Kapoor, who is also open to acting in a film that deals with the issue, put speculations to rest about his character in the highly awaited Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol, the fourth installment in the spy franchise. “I’m doing one of the sleaziest roles in Mission Impossible 4. He is a scum. Considering nobody knows me there, I thought I should do it, as I can’t do it in Bollywood,” says the actor.
I’m doing one of the sleaziest roles in Mission Impossible 4. He is a scum. I’ve had sleepless nights playing him.
