- Anil Kapoor wants to be completely focussed on his character
- "Not carrying cell phones was a conscious decision," he said
- Fanney Khan also stars Aishwarya Rai Bachchan
For Anil Kapoor, 60, the no-phone policy was a conscious decision. "Not carrying cell phones was a conscious decision so that I don't get distracted for even a second. Every character requires the same amount of commitment and that is what I am doing with this one," he told mid-day.
It's a widely known fact that Sanjay Leela Bhansali forbids his entire team from using their cellphones on the sets of his films. This came after a few images from Ram Leela, featuring Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh were leaked.
Fanney Khan marks Anil Kapoor and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's third collaboration. The actors have previously worked together in Taal and Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai. Of the cast, Mr Mehra earlier said, "We have a great cast and it is a dream film for me. The music is by Amit Trivedi and Irshad Kamil and I am absolutely dawning a producer's hat with such a wonderful team," he said." Actor Rajkummar Rao joined the cast earlier this week.
Anil Kapoor was last seen in Mubarakan, co-starring nephew Arjun Kapoor.
