‘I will never make a reality show’

If it were someone else, bringing together a host of international artistes, TV and film actors would seem like a distant possibility. But with the roller-coaster ride his career is currently taking, Anil Kapoor is positive about making it happen.
“That is my ultimate aim,” says Kapoor, adding, “To do a film with all the people I have worked with, like Danny Boyle, Tom Cruise or Kiefer Sutherland. And it’s not difficult. Why shouldn’t it happen? I am 100 per cent sure it will happen. I want to bring talent from there to be part of our productions.”Kapoor expressed keen interest in initiating a television production house in India a few months ago. But, according to him, they are all in the initial stages. "I have a lot of plans, but I can’t really spell them out," says Kapoor, who was last seen in Anees Bazmee’s No Problem. "But I am definitely doing something because television is my next step. There is so much content, but I can tell you one thing for sure that it is not going to be a reality show! Nor will it have any judges. That’s for sure."
Though he does admit that the amount of fan mail he received after he featured on TV shows like Koffee With Karan and Yes Boss, was more than what he usually gets for his films. “I wish I would’ve got that after so many other things I have done. It was quite phenomenal. That’s because I feel my job is to entertain and to make audiences happy, which might not always mean making people laugh. When you entertain, it can be anecdotal, emotional or funny.”
For now, he is taking some time off. As for his future plans in Hollywood, that will only be decided by January 20. “I have set up meetings in Los Angeles in January because I have been so busy for the last two to three years. For now, I am taking a 15-day break, and that is enough for me to go on for two more years,” he concludes.
