MUMBAI: Bollywood’s most famous export to Hollywood, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ actor Anil Kapoor was recently spotted at Ketnav theatre in Mumbai.
The theatre has seen many a film screening, but it recently saw Anil Kapoor live and in action outside the theatre. He was accompanied by friend and Bollywood funny man Satish Kaushik.
The 50 plus actor looked dapper in a grey hooded sweatshirt and jeans, with a stubble on his visage. Satish donned a white tee and jeans. The duo happily posed for shutterbugs present at the theatre.
Anil Kapoor is all geared up for the Oscar race as well, and he feels that Anupam Kher-starrer “Silver Linings Playbook” is the front-runner for an Oscar nomination. “He (Anupam Kher) has been a kind of an actor who has been an integral part of so many films, like ‘Hum Aapke Hain Kaun’, ‘Ram Lakhan’, ‘Beta’, ‘Saaransh’, and ‘Daddy’. Then ‘Bend It like Beckham’ and now ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, which I am confidently saying is the frontrunner for nomination for the Oscar,” Kapoor said.
Of course, the man has himself been part of an Oscar buzz film like ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, and one must definitely take his Oscar prophecy seriously.
Anil has also played an Islamic leader Omar Hassan in the eighth episodes of the TV show “24”, the American political thriller. He is trying to fight piracy as much as he can, when he said, “Even I am, to a certain extent, trying to do whatever I can, in my own capacity because I am bringing ’24’ in India so obviously we have to try to protect the content as much as possible.”
“We are trying our best. There is technology in India…by the time it becomes digital, it will be much more easier to curb and control piracy,” he added.
