NewDelhi: Anil Kapoor is mighty impressed by his daughter Sonam and Hrithik Roshan’s music video “Dheere Dheere”, a new version of the popular track from 1990 block-buster “Aashiqui”.
The song is said to be a tribute to late T-series founder Gulshan Kumar. It is sung and composed by Yo Yo Honey Singh.
The original track was sung by Kumar Sanu and Anuradha Paudwal, and composed by Nadeem-Shravan.
“I loved the video. It is fabulous and fully commercial.
It is fantastic and the song is also nice,” Anil said in an interview.
The 58-year-old actor is looking forward to the release of his his next movie “Welcome Back”, which will see him reprise his role of don Majnu Bhai from the 2007 original movie.
The film, also starring John Abraham, Shruti Haasan, Nana Patekar, Paresh Rawal, Naseeruddin Shah and Dimple Kapadia, will release tomorrow.
“It is always better to have a combination of old and new actors. Then it becomes really a family film, a good family movie. Naseer Saab has a separate fan following. Everybody loves and respects him.
“Nana also has a different following., Anees (the director) too… He made films like ‘Welcome’, ‘No Entry’, ‘Singh Is Kinng’, which were very successful.”
Anil always gets complimented for looking younger than his age but the actor said he knows where he stands today. The actor, who was last seen playing a father in Zoya Akhtar’s “Dil Dhadakne Do”, said he is prepared to do similar roles in future.
“I am a father. One of the reasons I look younger than my age is that because I am not delusional. Some people take themselves too seriously, thinking that ‘I am so young and so good looking’. but I know where I stand. That’s why I did ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’… I am securing my future,” Anil said.
“So, that people get to know that I will play such roles too (of a father) and Majnu Bhai too. I don’t have any misconception about myself. I am very blessed that I am here and I am a very happy person. and I love making people happy.
