Following his stint in Hollywood, Anil Kapoor’s career seems to be at an all time high. And filmmakers are not wasting any time to approach the actor. Mumbai Mirror has recently learnt that the actor has been offered his first role in a Dharma Production, which will be directed by Rensil D’Silva
A source close to the film revealed, “After the way MI 4 was touted, Anil has been regarded as a big star in the industry. And since his career has taken off as well as it has, he brings a lot of value to a project. That’s why Karan Johar and Rensil D’Silva decided to get Anil on-board.”
According to the source, Anil is yet to sign the film, however, the modalities are currently being worked out. Rensil’s untitled venture reportedly stars Emraan Hashmi in one of the male lead roles. “The rest of the cast including the film’s leading lady is yet to be finalized,” added the source.
When contacted, Rensil said, “Well, I can’t talk about casting right now. I will make an announcement shortly.”
Anil and Karan remained unavailable for comment.
