Mumbai, Nov 1 : Actor Anil Kapoor says had Padmini Kolhapure not agreed to work with him in “Woh 7 Din”, he wouldn’t have been where he is today.

On Padmini’s birthday on Wednesday, Anil shared a photograph from the 1983 film “Woh 7 Din” and captioned it: “Happy birthday to my first leading lady Padmini Kolhapure! It’s because she agreed to do ‘Woh 7 Din’ that I am where I am today!”

Directed by Bapu, “Woh 7 Din” revolves around Dr. Anand who learns that his newly-wedded bride Maya loves someone else. He decides to reunite the two lovers at all costs and begins to search for the man.

Currently, Anil is working with actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the upcoming film “Fanney Khan”.

The musical comedy film is being directed by Atul Manjrekar.

“Fanney Khan”, being produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, KriArj Entertainment and T-Series, is the official remake of the Oscar-nominated 2000 Dutch film “Everybody’s Famous!”.

It is scheduled for a worldwide release on April 13, 2018.(IANS)

Kick Yourself out of Your Comfort Zone: Anil Kapoor

Actor Anil Kapoor doesn’t want to get comfortable with his position in the industry, and says he has a simple plan, which is to be better than yesterday.

“I don’t think I ever want to be completely comfortable for fear of complacency. It’s only when you put yourself in uncomfortable situations that you grow and learn,” Anil told IANS.

“So when you find yourself getting too comfortable and too much at ease, kick yourself out of your comfort zone and try something new,” he added.

Anil entered the industry with a small role in 1979 with Umesh Mehra’s “Hamare Tumhare”, and then went on to carve his niche by balancing his stature as a respectable actor and his popularity as a saleable star, with performances including “Woh 7 Din”, “1942: A Love Story”, “Mr. India”, “Tezaab”, “Ram Lakhan”, “Lamhe”, “Beta”, “Taal”, “Nayak: The Real Hero” and “Pukar”.

His versatility is proved by the fact that he was equally at home in these international projects as he was in out-and-out Bollywood outings as “No Entry”, “Welcome”, “Race”, “Dil Dhadakne Do”, “Mubarakan”, “Fanney Khan”, “Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga” and “Total Dhamaal”.

“Strangely enough, my goals haven’t changed much at all! I’m a simple man with a simple plan — to be better than I was yesterday. So that’s what I continue to strive towards,” said the actor, who recently became part of a panel discussion by Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films in Kolkata to decode “what makes films powerful”, as part of a six-city tour.

Next, he wants some “time off”.

“Then we dive into ‘Malang’ promotion mode and of course Karan Johar’s ‘Takht’,” he said. (IANS)
