Rakesh & I shared special director-actor pairing: Anil Kapoor
Mumbai: Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor on Monday said he shared a special director-actor pairing with Rakesh Roshan as together they had delivered many hit films.
"Like there was this hit jodi (pair) of Amitabh Bachchan and Manmohan Desai, Karan Johar-Shah Rukh Khan…the same way, I felt Guddu and me were also a jodi," Kapoor said.
"…But Hrithik came in the way and broke our jodi," he said in a lighter vein.
Kapoor and Roshan worked together in films like 'Kala Bazaar', 'Kishen-Kanhaiya', 'Khel' and others. Hence, when Roshan asked Kapoor to launch the 'Krrish 3' event and introduce the star cast, he immediately agreed.
"I feel privileged and honored to launch or anchor or whatever you call it the trailer of 'Krrish 3'. Guddu (as Rakesh Roshan is fondly called) has a 100 per cent track record as a filmmaker. He is a great father and a husband, a fantastic friend…his friendship goes on for years and years no matter if anyone achieves box office success or not and that is what I admire about him," Kapoor told reporters here.
"I hope to be part of 'Krrish 4'," the actor added.
Roshan thanked Anil for coming to the event at such a short notice.
"This gesture of him will always remain in my heart.
Hrithik says when he started his career, everybody who observed him said he performed like Anil Kapoor…that is because he worked closely with him while he assisted me on Kapoor's films," he said.
"My model of acting was based on Anil Kapoor…he is a fantastic person and actor. He is so young today that I can't even call him uncle," Hrithik said.
Kapoor introduced the film's trailer and actors-Hrithik Roshan, Vivek Oberoi and Kangana Ranaut.
"The poster of the film has already got 10 lakh hits and created a history. The trailer looks amazing, it is unbelievable, I am speechless…I don't know what to say," Kapoor said.
'Krrish 3', the third instalment will take forward the story of the superhero, played by Hrithik in 'Koi Mil Gaya' and "Krrish". Starring Hrithik, Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranuat and Vivek Oberoi it is set for a November 4 release.
