The wide impact of Fawad Khan‘s role and performance in Shashanka Ghosh’s Khoobsurat has made Sonam’s father Anil Kapoor very proud.
“Fawad was already a star before Khoobsurat. Now he’s a superstar. Sonam is very lucky for her heroes,” says Anil pointing to the fact that some of the heroes Sonam has worked with have gone to the next level in their career.
Anil credits his daughter producer Rhea with the insight to cast Fawad. “I am proud of Rhea. She is turning out to be exactly like her mother, my wife Sunita. A no means no and a yes means a yes to both these ladies in my life.”
Anil is happy with the box office outcome of Khoobsurat. “We set out to make Disney’s first Hindi fairytale romance. And we succeeded in doing that. Also, we didn’t flood the theatres with too many prints. We have 800 prints in the first week. We hope to sustain the audiences’ interest in the second week.”
Both his daughters are proudly self-made individuals.
Says Anil, “Sonam Kapoor has never worked with any of the superstars except Salman who had a cameo in her debut film and now in Prem Ratan Dhan Payo. She has achieved what she has achieved on her own steam.”
