Boney Kapoor has received praise for his cameo in his brother Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap’s meta film AK vs AK (2020), which was released recently. The producer is now all set to play a full-fledged character in Luv Ranjan’s yet-untitled film starring Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
Boney will be playing Ranbir’s father in the film.
The producer revealed in a chat with the Mid-Day newspaper that it was his son, actor Arjun Kapoor, who convinced him to accept the offer. “Luv insisted I do the role. He reached out to Arjun, who persuaded me for it,” said Boney.
Boney added that the makers have planned the shooting schedule to suit him. “While the team will be shooting at a stretch in Delhi, they have given me the liberty to fly down to Mumbai and attend to my productions,” he said.
In AK vs AK, Boney played a version of himself. But in this film, he will be playing a fictitious character for the first time. Despite that, he said that he doesn’t have any jitters. “I don’t have butterflies in my stomach. I have been calm during life’s ups and downs, so why should I feel apprehensive now?” he added.
The film went on floors on 5 January.
