The Parent Trap: Anil Kapoor's Impending Fatherhood

Anil Kapoor will play Ranveer Singh and Priyanka Chopra’s father in Zoya Akhtar’s next.

Highlights

  • Anil Kapoor has quietly re-invented himself, almost without anyone noticing, over the last few years. The 24 alumnus is now a face that Hollywood recognizes, with films like Slumdog Millionaire and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol on his resume.
  • You might think there isn’t much left that the Mr India star hasn’t done on-screen – but you’d be wrong. Sonam’s dad is now going to be a first-time father on celluloid, playing paterfamilias to actors Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh in Zoya Akhtar’s in-progress film Dil Dhadakne Do.
  • Mr Kapoor’s character in the film will also reportedly have grey hair – a fact that we cannot confirm since the actor has gone to some lengths to keep his look under wraps.
  • Actors like Jackie Shroff, Mithun Chakraborty and Rishi Kapoor – all contemporaries of Anil Kapoor - have already been playing their age on the silver screen for a while now.
  • Mithunda played a father in Golmaal while Jackie was the menacing Rana Jyotivardhan in Eklavya.
  • Even Govinda has decided to play father to Ranbir Kapoor in Jagga Jasoos.
  • Now, with Anil Kapoor going grey, Bollywood has another dapper daddy in the offing.
