'I don't watch my own films-I have this complex': Annu Kapoor

Popular Bollywood actor-anchor-orator-radio-show-host-musicologist Annu Kapoor (of ‘Vicky Donor’ fame) was in his elements, wearing a flamboyant ‘hat’, at the trailer launch of his latest film ‘Mr.Kabaadi’ (scrap-dealer), which is the last film of the ‘late’ iconic actor Om Puri who plays the ‘sutradhaar’ of  the movie directed by his ex-wife Seema Kapoor.   

Annu revealed,“ It’s a Chaplinesque satirical comedy with a strong social message and I am cast in the film in the title role because of my earthy looks. Incidentally, I don’t watch my own films, it’s my phobia complex that I feel I lack the photogenic looks. Regardless of whether I am considered a bad or a good actor, one of the sentimental reasons why I acted in this film was because the dedicated director Seema also happens to be my sister. And as a worthy brother, I had to honour her command.”

The movie also stars Vinay Pathak, Saarika, Brijendra Kala, charming newcomers Kashish Vohra and  Dr. Apurv Nain.

Producer-singer Anup Jalota who has sung a hilarious theme bhajan in the movie which is picturised on him said, “Om Puri was a proactive life-line for our film. Fortunately, we had ‘sync-sound’  for his dialogues and hence, no dubbing was required. We really miss Om-jee’s presence and hence this film is dedicated to his memory. Our family entertainer ‘..Kabaadi’  also conveys a strong  message of social hypocrisy and the class-struggle and also promotes the ‘swachh Bhaarat mission’.”

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
