Anil Kapoor On Why He Stopped Accepting Hollywood Projects

Must Read

Anil Kapoor is not just a star in the Bollywood industry, he has also acted in Hollywood movies. His 2008 release Slumdog Millionaire bagged ten nominations and won 8 awards at the 81st Academy Awards.

Despite last starring in Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol, the actor says he won’t accept Hollywood projects anymore. Speaking to Variety, the Mr. India star said, “There are shows, films, which are pitched to me. Sometimes things don’t work out, because of various reasons. It might be the role. It might be the script; it might be the timing when they approached me.”

“And sometimes it might be situations where I feel as if it is not worth my time to go there for this kind of film, or this kind of role. But I’m always open to jobs which challenge me, which will help me grow my craft as an actor. And I would love to work with filmmakers who can challenge me and can make me a better actor in the West. I’m looking forward to that,” added Kapoor.

Kapoor will soon be seen on the big screen in the upcoming movie Jugg Jugg Jeeyo alongside Varun Dhawan, Kiara Advani, Neetu Kapoor, Maniesh Paul and Prajakta Koli. Directed by Raj Mehta, the movie is a romantic comedy and will release on 24th June 2022.

Post Jugg Jugg Jeeyo, Kapoor will start filming for Sandeep Reddy Vanga’s Animal starring Ranbir Kapoor and Rashmika Mandanna. He also has Siddharth Anand’s Fighter starring Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone in his pipeline. Both the films are slated to hit the theatres in 2023.

Earlier this year, Kapoor was also seen in the Netflix production Thar directed by Raj Singh Chaudhary. The movie starred Fatima Sana Shaikh, Harshvardhan Kapoor, Mukti Mohan, and Mandana Karimi along with Anil Kapoor. The film released on 6th May 2022.
