Anil Kapoor received positive reviews for his role in Zoya Akhtar’s ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’. However, he recently revealed that initially, he was quite hesitant to play the role of Priyanka Chopra‘s father in the film.
Spilling the beans about the same, Anil Kapoor reportedly told a news portal that he has been ‘quite brave’ from the beginning of his career, and played an older character in ‘Lamhe’. However, playing father to Priyanka Chopra was awkward for him because they were earlier supposed to do films where he was romantically paired with her.
Elaborating further, Anil added that it was his son Harshvardhan Kapoor who convinced him to take up the role. Harsh reportedly told Anil that he is not actually her father and that he is just playing a role.
‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ had Anil playing a business magnate on the verge of bankruptcy, with Priyanka and Ranveer playing his children. The film also featured Anushka Sharma, Farhan Akhtar, Rahul Bose and Shefali Shah in key roles.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Anil will next be seen in Raj Mehta’s ‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’ co-starring Neetu Kapoor, Varun Dhawan and Kiara Advani in lead roles.
Apart from this, Anil is also a part of Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s upcoming film, ‘Animal’. It also stars Ranbir Kapoor, Parineeti Chopra and Bobby Deol in lead roles.
