Renowned Bollywood producer Boney Kapoor has ventured into a new territory as he made his acting debut in Luv Ranjan's film 'Tu Jhoothi Main Makkaar.' Playing the role of Ranbir Kapoor's Punjabi father, Boney Kapoor credits his children – Anshula, Arjun, Khushi, and Janhvi – for providing the motivation that led him to take this new step. According to Kapoor, his children encouraged him by insisting, "Papa yeh karna hi hoga" (Dad, you have to do this). Their support was the driving force behind his foray into acting, and he fondly remarks on his close and friendly relationship with his kids.
Kapoor refers to his bond with his children as both "friendly and tight," where he embraces multiple roles – being a father and a mother – for them. The open nature of their relationship allows them to share jokes, engage in serious discussions, and talk about anything and everything under the sun.ALSO READ: Boney Kapoor reveals the truth on rumors about Janhvi's birth
Despite his successful career as a producer, Kapoor admits that he hasn't yet mustered the courage to watch his acting debut due to his nerves. He expresses happiness over the mixed response his performance has garnered. Though he hasn't seen the film, he mentions that people reached out to him with appreciation for his work. Some even suggested that his role should have had more screen time in the movie. Responding to the criticism about his limited dialogues and screen presence, Kapoor humorously redirects the question to Luv Ranjan,saying, "Aapne itne achhe artiste ko waste kaise kar diya" the director, while playfully adding that he enjoyed the experience.
With his youngest daughter, Khushi Kapoor, preparing to make her acting debut in the web film "The Archies," Kapoor reflects on the generation gap and how the current generation is often self-sufficient and intelligent enough to navigate the industry themselves. He acknowledges that his kids are obedient and sensible, even though they may make occasional mistakes, which he believes are learning opportunities.
Regarding the state of the film industry in the aftermath of the pandemic, Kapoor acknowledges the fluctuations between flops and hits as part of the industry's nature.ALSO READ: Shraddha Kapoor's response to fan's question, 'Will you marry me?' cannot be missed
