For the first time in his three-decade long career, Kapoor plays a Sikh character in a full fledged role, in his next!
Anil Kapoor never says die…or dye. In his 35-year career as a leading man, the ever-young Kapoor, who has played everything possible from an autistic man in Eeshwar to an obese man in Badhaai Ho Badhaai to the Chief Minister in Nayak, now embarks on yet another untried path.
In the forthcoming Mubarakan, Anil plays a turbaned Sikh for the first time. Says the excited actor, “It would be an honour to play a Sardar. I have a fabulous role in Mubarakan. I go into this film right after I complete the shooting of my television serial 24. It would be the ideal stress-buster after the intense action and drama in 24.”
Anil has great regards for director Anees Bazmee. “He has made some of the biggest hits in the comedy genre without resorting to vulgar double entendre. Mubarakan, too, is completely free of any crudity, and that’s what I love about it. It is one of the most brilliant scripts I’ve come across in the comic genre.”
Significantly, this time, writer-director Bazmee won’t be directing his own script. Says Anil, “This is a rare occasion when Anees is not directing his own script. It’s also the first time I am acting with my nephew, Arjun Kapoor.”
It would be quite interesting to see these two Kapoors come together for a film. Currently while Anil Kapoor is caught up with 24 TV series, Arjun is busy shooting for Half Girlfriend with Shraddha Kapoor. What are your thoughts on seeing Anil with a turban?
