HT Exclusive: Interview Of Bollywood Actors Sonam Kapoor And Anil KapoorDirector Shelly Chopra who is making her directorial debut with ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ is feeling ecstatic about her film and finds the father-daughter duo, Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor endearing.

Real-life father-daughter Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor will be seen sharing screen space for the first time in the film.

Shelly shares, “On their first day together, I gave the clap and called it a historical shot as it was the first time we had two big stars who are also father and daughter. Anil is a typical dad who asks us to take Sonam’s shots first; I find it endearing. We have been shooting at night and it gets nippy at times, so Sonam is constantly checking up on her father.”

The film’s shoot commenced last month, where Anil Kapoor and Madhu Malti started to shoot in Patiala while Sonam Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, and Juhi Chawla joined the sets later.

The film will also revive Anil Kapoor’s cult song ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ and interestingly, even the films title is based on the song.

The film ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ will mark the directorial debut of filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s sister Shelly Chopra Dhar.

Produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra under the banner Vinod Chopra films, ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ is directed by debutante director Shelly Chopra Dhar and is slated to release on 12th October 2018.

As she kicks off 2018 with a hit, Sonam Kapoor on teaming up with Anil Kapoor after a decade in Bollywood and being in a ‘happy space’ professionally

“It has taken me 10 years to work with my father,” says Sonam Kapoor, overjoyed to be sharing screen space with Anil Kapoor in Shelly Chopra’s Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga. The actor recalls watching him enact scenes when she would visit his film set as a child, never pausing to think that she would share the frame with him someday. 

Having already shot for a week in Patiala, Sonam says of her father-cum-co-star, “I’m more excited than nervous to be working with him. We never interacted in a professional capacity, not even during the shoot of our productions Khoobsurat (2014) or Aisha (2010).”

Considering the years of experience Anil brings with him, one can’t help but wonder if he gives her advice after a shot or helps her better a scene. “My father is never critical of me. My mother is [critical], but not him. He thinks Rhea [Kapoor, sister] and I are the best, and loves the way we handle our work. Dads are usually like that with their daughters,” she smiles.

The opportunity to perform with her father aside, Sonam has much to cheer about — her latest outing, Pad Man, has set the cash registers ringing. But the actor says that success, to her, isn’t just about box-office numbers. “To me, it’s the satisfaction of a job well done. Not many people get to live their passion. I have that privilege and have never taken it for granted. It is an amazing experience to be someone else for the camera, to make someone else’s mistakes, and empathise with their joys and sorrows. I am in a happy space currently.”

She insists that her championing the cause of menstrual hygiene doesn’t end with the film’s release. “I’m grateful to the viewers for coming out in such numbers to watch a film based on a subject that is considered a taboo in India. It signifies that we are ready to talk about things that have not been easy to discuss for ages. That is what movies do. If my voice can bring attention to a cause, I will gladly use it.”

Everyone’s favourite Anil Kapoor is the one and only constant actor in Bollywood. He has been around for almost four decades and is still going strong. While in B-town, actors keep changing in various franchises, Anil Kapoor happens to be the directors’ favourite.

Be it his equation with the people or his acting, the man knows how to give his best in both. Talking about the ‘Race’ franchise, the ‘Jhakaas’ actor is the constant factor and we are not complaining. While people are anticipating for the third instalment of the film, we got hold of some leaked pictures that give us a glimpse of Anil Kapoor’s character.

The look has gone viral as you spot Anil in a prisoner’s avatar. What has left us intrigued is what has detective Robert D’Costa aka R.D. of ‘Race 2’ done to land up in a prison? From being a detective to a prisoner, that’s quite a twist we must say.

Exclusive first picture of #AnilKapoor from the sets of #Race3 at Film City, Goregaon.

Just recently, Anil was spotted with the white beard and everyone was stunned to see that. But now we know why he got that grandpa beard after all.

Anil Kapoor clicked on the sets of Race 3…. . . . . Follow @bollyworld.tellyworld . . . . . #anilkapoor #salmankhan #jacquelinefernandez #bobbydeol #race3

Well, Anil is the perfect example of versatility and keeping him intact in the ‘Race’ franchise is the best decision ever. Even Salman agreed with it after all he welcomed the 61-year-old actor saying, “Inke aane se Race3 ka cast aur ho gaya jhakas”. And there is no one who can say otherwise.

In fact, the actor recently also celebrated his birthday onset with Salman Khan and shared the pictures on Twitter. He captioned it saying, “Who says an on-set birthday has to be boring?! My Birthday was made extra special by the @SKFonline & @tipsofficial teams! Thank you all for your love & wishes!”

Apart from Salman and Anil, ‘Race 3’ also has Bobby Deol, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Saqib Saleem and Freddy Daruwala playing some pivotal roles. The film is expected to hit the screen on Eid 2018.

Just recently, even Bobby Deol’s transformation for the film created quite a stir on the Internet. As for Anil’s look, all we can say is ‘Jhakaas!’

We noticed an uncanny similarity between Ranveer Singh’s cop look in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film Simmba and Anil Kapoor’s 1994 film Mr Azaad – the twirled moustache

We noticed an uncanny similarity between Ranveer Singh’s cop look in Rohit Shetty’s upcoming film Simmba and Anil Kapoor’s 1994 film Mr Azaad – the twirled moustache. Ranveer is a fan of Mr Jhakaas and the two seem to believe in Big B’s iconic line from Sharaabi (1984) – moochein ho toh Nathulal jaise ho, warna na ho.

Earlier, it was reported that R. Madhavan may be cast opposite Aishwarya, and subsequently, it sparked talks that the actress was upset over it as she was keen on Rajkummar instead. The film is an official remake of the Oscar-nominated Dutch film ‘Everybody’s Famous’, ‘Fanne Khan‘ will be directed by Atul Manjrekar and will star Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao. While Anil Kapoor’s first look from the film 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, for, which he had gone off salt and sugar.

After spending two weeks at a spa in Austria, which is B-Town’s favourite destination, Anil Kapoor is now in Munich

After spending two weeks at a spa in Austria, which is B-Town’s favourite destination, Anil Kapoor is now in Munich. Yesterday, the actor shared a snapshot and wrote, “I’m not lost, I’m exploring.” Mr Jhakaas was keen on a holiday after going through the strict detox regime. Civic officials recently demolished illegal cabins in his office. There’s lots waiting for him when he is back in Mumbai apart from the next schedule of Fanney Khan.

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?
