Anil Kapoor takes off to US for charity event

Anil Kapoor was suddenly gayab from Mumbai, nobody knew where he is and why is he not seen in the ocasions where he was supposed to be ?

According to sources,

This week Anil was supposed to be in Mumbai for two very important occasions. Super-cop Isaque Bhagwan (whom Anil will portray in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout At Wadala) had personally gone to Anil’s home to invite the star for his son’s wedding on Nov 25. Anil had assured him he would be there. Then there is Anil’s dear friend David Dhawan whose son Rohit keenly wanted Anil to be at the special screening of Desi Boyz on Thursday. Anil had categorically assured his presence at both the events. Both Isaque and David received calls from Anil with profuse apologies.

A close Fried of Anil Kapoor said,

All he told us was that he had to leave for the US suddenly. He didn’t tell any of us why. I’m presuming it is to fetch Tom Cruise for the Mission Impossible 4 premiere in Mumbai.

When tracked down, Anil said,

Arrey nahin, no mystery at all. I had to leave suddenly because I was called for a charity event in LA for Pratham, the child literacy organization that I’m closely associated with. I thought that was more important than anything else. I am sure David and Isaque would understand. In fact I’ve assured Isaque I will visit

his home to bless the couple the minute I land in Mumbai. As for David, he’s a dear friend. I’ve had great fun working with him. I am really eager to see his son’s Desi Boyz.
