Anil Kapoor still considers himself a Chembur boy. He has fond memories of growing up in Tilak Nagar.

As ambassador of the Swachh Bharat initiative, Anil Kapoor will be launching Swachh Chembur, Swachh Mumbai project in collaboration with civic authorities. The actor will be attending an event near Chembur railway station tomorrow. Not that he needs a reason to go to the eastern suburb of Mumbai.

Besides having an appetite for experimental roles, Anil Kapoor doesn’t shy away from experimenting with his looks either. The actor recently unveiled his look from his next, Fanney Khan. While the first look showed the actor sporting salt-and-pepper hair, those in the know say that he is sporting a lean look in the Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra film.

The physique didn’t come easy for the 60-year-old actor. A unit hand informs that ahead of the film going on floors a week ago, Kapoor had to adopt a special diet to step into the role of a struggling musician. “Anil was required to achieve a haggard look for the musical. To perfect the look, he completely went off salt and sugar for 20 days,” reveals the source.

Considering the actor suffers from bursitis (inflammation of the tendon near his ankle) — a condition that aggravated during the shoot of Mubarakan in April this year, it was difficult for him to hit the gym with a vengeance. “Anil had to adopt methods other than a regular gym routine to lose weight, as he was nursing an ankle injury at the time. So it was suggested that he go off salt and sugar. He did light workouts twice a day.”

Many drew parallels between this look and the one he sported in Dil Dhadakne Do (2015). Kapoor says, “Fanney Khan’s similarity with Kamal Mehra [his character in Dil Dhadakne Do] ends with the salt-and-pepper hair. The difference in their personalities and circumstances, makes these two characters poles apart.”

Anil Kapoor took 50 hours to finalise his salt-and-pepper look in Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s production, Fanney Khan. The actor recently began shooting for the musical, which has Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as his co-star.

The makers claim he spent five days at a suburban salon, clocking 10 hours daily till he was happy with the grey strands near the temples and forehead. Considering Mr Jhakaas had a full crop of grey hair in Dil Dhadakne Do (2013), we wonder how many days and hours he spent finalising that look?

There was talk of R Madhavan being part of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s production ‘Fanney Khan’, starring Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.

The actor says he could not commit to the project due to date issues. But a birdie close to the project chirps to say Maddy asked for a whopper. As a result, the makers roped in Rajkummar Rao. Mehra and Bachchan were keen on Maddy though.

The movie will be directed by Atul Manjrekar and will also have actor Anil Kapoor in the lead.

Talking about the film’s leading lady, Rao said, “She’s the most beautiful woman in the world. It’s a great story, there’s a lot of love, and the content is not just entertaining but is detailed and different. There will be lots of workshops and readings once I am back.”

After all, he has given us some of the best comedy films that we can watch over and over again.

And here are few reasons why you should watch this film.

A Good Family Entertainer

The year 2017 hasn't started on a good note for Bollywood films. There is hardly a film that was released this year that could be called as a family entertainer. And for how long can we keep obsessing over 'Baahubali 2'? We hope 'Mubarakan' sets the record straight!

Arjun & Anil's Jodi

It is for the first time that we will get to see real life 'chacha-bhatija' Jodi of Anil Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor making an appearance on screen. They both portray the same relation even in the film, so it goes without saying that we will get to see their real chemistry and bond which makes us all excited to see Anil and Arjun together.

From giving us films like 'No Entry', 'Welcome', 'Ready' and 'Singh is King', Anees Bazmee is one of those directors who surely knows how to tickle your funny bone. Every film he has made has been loved by the viewers, well you might not be a very big fan of his but he totally makes you laugh. And looking at the trailer of his latest film, it looks like Mubarakan will be a good watch too.

Going by the track record, for every film that Anil and Anees has collaborated together, it has been loved by the viewers. How can one forget Anil Kapoor's character in 'No Entry' and 'Welcome'? You can watch these films anytime without getting bored. And now we can expect the same from this duo in 'Mubarakan' as well.

Double Role Hit Formula

It is a noted trend in Bollywood that we love a film where actors are seen in a double role. From 'Sita Aur Geeta', 'Chalbaaz' to 'Judwaa', every film has proven to win our hearts. In 'Mubarakan' too, Arjun Kapoor will be seen as Karanveer Singh and Charanveer Singh, giving us a double dose of him. Watch the trailer and it will be difficult for you to pick who is your favourite.

A Complete Package

Going by the trailers of the film, it wouldn't be wrong to say that the whole star-cast is all set to take your blues away and leave you in splits. From exotic locations, one liners, comic scenes of Anil Kapoor to songs, this film has every ingredient to prove to be a completely entertaining film.

The ‘Mubarakan’ trailer dropped today and the only thing we miss in the movie is probably having a real life Diljit ! Arjun Kapoor and Anil Kapoor play the roles of quintessential Punjabis in London. Arjun is seen in a double role as Charan and Karan.

Anil is the super cool bachelor uncle who is the masala to bland dish. We still cannot believe that this man has touched 60! Because he sure as hell shows no signs of slowing down.

The female leads have Athiya Shetty who is mostly expressionless and Ileana D’ Cruz, who is cruising to some rehashed music.

Rhea KapoorRhea Kapoor

Film producer and fashion stylist Rhea Kapoor, daughter of actor Anil Kapoor and sister of actress Sonam Kapoor, says during her initial days people expected her to be an actress and didn’t take her seriously.

After producing two Hindi films, “Aisha” and “Khoobsurat”, Rhea along with her elder sister Sonam has launched a new high street fashion brand — Rheson.

“Well, I think since I am daughter of Anil Kapoor, in the beginning, people expected me to be a actor like Sonam, but I didn’t as that was never my dream. Since my choices were unpredictable for critics, they did not take me seriously.

In fact, I believe, when you start young, people assume that you are undeserving,” Rhea said here. Such things don’t affect me”, she said here.

Though Rhea has grown up watching films, the glamour world never attracted her as she believes she is “too chilled out to be an actor”.

“I cannot sit holding a crossed lagged poster; I am clumsy person and a control freak. I would be a disaster as an actor! In fact, my personality also reflects on my collection” said the 30-year-old stylist.

The label Rheson has a collection of clothes that highlight daily, comfort and casual wear.

“I’m the first consumer for my product, so I have to create things with conviction. You know I love wearing a sari, but I cannot sit on the floor, with my folded legs, especially when sitting for puja or in Diwali, along with elders. It’s so uncomfortable. So I made that palazzo sari, graceful but as comfy as one can wear like a track pants,” she said.

Rhea is also busy with the production of “Veere Di Wedding” and “Battle for Bittora”, both starring Sonam.

Sonam-Kapoor-1Looks like things are getting serious between Sonam Kapoor and rumoured beau, entrepreneur Anand Ahuja. Over the last few months, the actress has shared a good number of snaps with Anand on social media, including those from their Amsterdam vacay and Anil Kapoor’s 60th birthday bash.

At a recent event in Delhi, the duo stepped out together and even posed for the flashbulbs. Now, in an interview with a fashion glossy, Anand has admitted to have a crush on the Neerja star — well, almost. Asked who his millennial style crush is, he named (who else?) Sonam Kapoor. We are now waiting for Sonam to reciprocate the love.
