Anil Kapoor used to be in his element as he came as a guest on The Kapil Sharma Show. He danced with Krushna Abhishek and Bharti Singh on his popular songs and even cracked a couple of jokes at his own expense.
In a promo shared online by Sony TV, host Kapil Sharma asked Anil, “Sir, ek afwa yeh hai ki aapne Abhishek Bachchan ke saath dosti sirf isliye kar rakhi hai taaki woh aapko andar ki khabar de ki Bachchan saab yeh movie nahi kar paa rahe hai aur aap uss producer ko phone karke bol de ki yeh mujhe de do (there’s a hearsay that you’re friends with Abhishek only in order that he can come up with within information approximately the films that Amitabh is unable to do and you’ll then call the producer and ask him to give it to you).”
Poking fun at himself, Anil said, “Nahi, nahi, not even Bachchan saab. Maine toh Abhishek ko yeh bhi kaha ki jo tu bhi na karega, woh bata de mujhe (Not just Mr Bachchan, I asked Abhishek to notify me approximately the films rejected by him).”

Anil used to be recently seen in AK vs AK, which also starred Anurag Kashyap. The two played exaggerated versions of themselves in the movie – Anurag plays a disgraced filmmaker who kidnaps Anil’s daughter, Sonam Kapoor, and films his search for her in real time.
Talking to Hindustan Times, Anil said that he put his entire career and image at stake when he took up the movie. He said, “Whether you (Vikramaditya Motwane) weren’t directing I would have never said yes. That’s your intuition, the choices you’re making. I’ve seen Vikram’s work up to now, and I knew that I’m in protected hands. So when you are taking most of these chances and put all your career at stake, and all your image at stake, which you have built, it doesn’t matter what happens, no matter how liberated (you’re feeling), no matter how broad-minded you are…”
