Wishes are pouring in for Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor on his 64th birthday. On the occasion of his birthday, Kapoor’s movie AK vs AK will also be released on Netflix. The movie also features Sonam Kapoor, the eldest daughter of the star.
The Netflix original is directed by Vikramaditya Motwane and features Anurag Kashyap playing a negative role. Wishing Kapoor on his birthday, Anurag Kashyap posted a series of throwback pictures of him with the actor. Even though the Gangs of Wasseypur director has a love-hate relationship with the actor, the Instagram birthday post was a heart-warming one.
Anurag mentioned that when AK vs AK is releasing, he wanted to put out these pictures of their launch of the most prized AK, Allwyn Kalicharan, the film that never got made. The pictures were from the year 2003. Anurag thanked Kapoor and called him the “most secure (insecure actor) human being”. He also commended Kapoor’s perseverance and resilient spirit even at the age of 64.
Anurag said that Kapoor is the most healthy competitor and is as hungry as he was when he started out in the film industry. He further said that the man can teach a lot on how to make the best out of what one has.
