If latest reports are to be believed, actor Anil Kapoor, who was last seen in ‘Mubarkan’ (2017) with nephew Arjun Kapoor, is all set to join forces with actor Saif Ali Khan for an upcoming untitled film to be based on a war. Though nothing has been officially confirmed by the makers, some insiders reveal that Kapoor has been roped in to play the role which R. Madhavan was supposed to essay in the movie. The ‘3 Idiot’ (2009) actor was quite psyched up about reuniting with Saif Ali Khan after ‘Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein’ (2001), but he had to bow out of the project due to his shoulder injury. After Madhavan put his papers down, the makers approached Anil Kapoor to fill his shoes.
To be directed by ‘NH10’ fame Navdeep Singh, the film stars Saif Ali Khan in the role of a Pathan. “Saif is playing a Pathan who takes revenge after his family gets killed when he was a kid. It is also heard that Anil Kapoor might play a pivotal role in the film,” reveals a source.
Reportedly, the regular shooting of the film has commenced as Saif was recently spotted in Rajasthan on the film’s sets. While Anil Kapoor’s association with the movie is yet to be confirmed, ‘Mukkabaaz’ (2018) actress Zoya Hussain and well-known film and television actor Manav Vij are confirmed to play pivotal parts in the flick.
Meanwhile, Anil Kapoor is shooting for his upcoming film ‘Race 3’, which also stars Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah, Bobby Deol and Saqib Saleem in principal roles. Besides ‘Race 3’, he will also be seen in ‘Total Dhamaal’ with Madhuri Dixit and ‘Ek Ladki Ko Dekha Toh Aisa Laga’ with daughter, Sonam Kapoor.
