Anil Kapoor is one of the most successful, popular & prolific actors working in Bollywood today, with his fair share of roles in international features, such as Slumdog Millionaire and Mission Impossible. Needless to say, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to speak to the actor via Zoom, to mark the release of his latest production, comedy Jugjugg Jeeyo. The actor, who can even pull off shades indoors, discusses his enjoyment for comedy, and what it was like working with Neetu Kapoor, for the very first time, in the actresses first performance since the passing of her husband Rishi Kapoor. He also talks about Varun Dhawan, and whether he is, like his character, young at heart. We then discuss how exciting a time this is for Bollywood, with the rise of streaming services like Netflix, and he tells us how he stays grounded.
Watch the full interview with Anil Kapoor here:
A story set in the heart of Patiala and much like the city, it’s full of love and laughter, colour and drama. This story is all about family and its values, unresolved yearnings and unexpected reconciliations.
Jugjugg Jeeyo is released on June 24th
