Boney Kapoor confirms Khushi Kapoor’s Bollywood debut; to kickstart shooting from THIS month

Earlier we had informed you all about Sridevi’s daughter Khushi Kapoor’s Bollywood debut. Now after a year, Khushi’s father and Bollywood filmmaker Boney Kapoor has finally verified the news and also opened up about her debut film. Recently in an interview, Boney Kapoor said, “She will start shooting for her film in April. Can’t tell you more, you will know more about it soon.”

Last year in January, Boney Kapoor had spilt beans on Khushi’s acting career. He said, “I have the resources, but I would rather have someone else launch her because I am her father and one tends to get indulgent. You can’t afford to do that as a filmmaker and nor is it good for the actor. Anil (brother Anil Kapoor) was still an established actor, so it didn’t affect him much, but I think I became an indulgent brother with Sanjay (Sanjay Kapoor) when he made his entry into films.”
Talking about Boney Kapoor, the filmmaker is all set to make his debut in acting with Luv Ranjan’s next along with Ranbir Kapoor. Talking about the film Kapoor said, “Luv Ranjan wanted me to work in the film as Ranbir’s father and insisted that he had written the role keeping my personality in mind. He flattered me, though I wasn’t sure if he really meant it or not (laughs). I was still not sure, so after hearing him out, I conveyed my decision to not do the film. There were logistic issues too, as they required me to shoot for some 25-30 days, and it would have been impossible for me, as I travel for work in Chennai, Mumbai and even Hyderabad. Eventually, Luv split my 25-day shoot over a span of 50 days and promised me three breaks,” he says.

“I was yet not sure, but then, my kids and brothers pushed me into it. I am glad, I did it because I worked with a very good unit. Luv Ranjan is mini-Asif (K. Asif). Ranbir is a fantastic actor, Dimple (Kapadia) is a fantastic co-star. There are some newcomers too, like the lady who is playing my mother – she is full of life and a fine actor. There’s also a kid, who is great. Then there’s a girl who plays my daughter, it’s her first film too. We have a bunch of fine actors, and the only question mark is Boney Kapoor. Let’s hope, I come across decently,” he concludes.
