Anil Kapoor is acting in his home-production finally. In his first two films Gandhi My Father and Shortkut – the actor was merely the producer,not the actor. “That’s because there was no role for me in those two films,” Anil tells me,”Why should I force myself in a project,even if it’s produced by me? If the director feels he needs to cast someone else,someone who suits the role more than I do,I wouldn’t hesitate one bit. In fact,I’ve never ever forced myself even in films produced by my father or brother.”
But there’s a role for Anil in his next home-production No Problem. This one stars Sanjay Dutt,Akshaye Khanna and Anil himself in principal roles. “Akshaye has starred in all my productions so far. He’s a wonderful artiste,” Anil says. Reportedly,Anil has signed three leading ladies for the film – Bipasha Basu,Kangna Ranaut and Neetu Chandra.
Anees Bazmee is directing No Problem. The principal shooting begins in July in South Africa.
