Papa, Anil May Share Screen with Daughter, Sonam

Bollwood directors and producers always try to bring something unique on the set, unique cast to make their flicks hit on the floor. News is that, this father, Anil Kapoor and daughter, Sonam Kapoor, are coming together under Yash Raj Films.

Finally Yash Raj Films and Aditiya Chopra have convinced Anil Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor to do a film together. Anil Kapoor, said about the news,

“Aditya has narrated an idea for me and Sonam in a film together. And I really, really like it. In fact, this is the first time that I’ve liked something which has been offered to both of us.”

Refusing to tell more about the role and the film, he says,

“I can’t tell you if it’s the role of father-daughter. But I can tell you that ideally when I do a film with Sonam, I don’t want us to be cast in real-life roles.”

Anil also added that he don’t want to present real-life story in his on-screen space with Sonam, when Thank You was offered to Sonam, he opted to quit from the film as his role was that of Akshay Kumar’s buddy who encourages him to be flirtatious.

“I was supposed to do a role in Anees Bazmi’s Thank You which Sonam is doing. At that time, Katrina Kaif was supposed to do the part. Once Sonam stepped in, I opted out. I wanted our combination to be really special when it happened.”

“All I will say is, it was a role I wouldn’t have been comfortable doing with Sonam in the picture.”

Same time, daughter and father also facing big competition to each other as Anil is promoting his forthcoming film, my series 24 as a huge film.

“That’s right,” he chuckles. “My home production Aisha with Sonam will be released in August, at the same time that my series 24 will be aired in India. We’re promoting 24 like any big film. You could say it’s Sonam versus me.”

Anil believes that he doesn’t want to type cast in his roles, and says, Aisha was not designed for Sonam. He says,

“It was an idea that Sonam and my younger daughter Rhea came up with. If I hadn’t liked it, I wouldn’t have produced it. In our production company, no film will be made to provide a chance to any of us. If I wanted to do that, I’d have produced a film for Sonam as a launch vehicle and not handed her over to Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Ideally when I do a film with Sonam, I don’t want us to be cast in real-life roles.”
