Anil Kapoor talks about the success of Mubarakan
The complete entertainment package of Bollywood Anil Kapoor is very happy with the success of his recent release Mubarakan says, that he has never run after instant success in his life.
The actor says that this is not his individual fame but an effort of team work. Talking about the same, Kapoor said, "I feel any film is a team effort. There are so many films with an ensemble cast featuring me where others have been liked more. After 'Slumdog Millionaire', all of us stood on that stage receiving that Oscar.That is the team spirit in which Mubarakan was made. Sure, my character was liked. And it contributed to the film's success. But my nephew Arjun has also been liked. I was surprised by how dedicated and focused he is at his age”, said Mr.Kapoor in an interview.
This is the first time he has essayed a full-fledged Sikh character, Kartar Singh.
Talking about the character he said,"I loved getting into a turban. I really enjoyed my character. Kartar Singh is destined to be iconic just like my characters in 'Mr. India', 'No Entry', 'Nayak', 'Ram Lakhan' and my TV series '24'. I played characters in these films that are remembered to this day. Even now people call me Lakhan from Ram Lakhan or Kishen from No Entry."
When asked about the opening collection of the movie at the box office Anil quickly reverted by saying that Mubarakan is not his first film that had a slow and a low start at the box office. His other films like 'Judaai', 'Taal' and 'No Entry' also had a subdued start. They went on to become big successes later. It is known that he has never looked for instant success. Nor has he ever craved to be the pivotal character in my films.
