Anil Kapoor’s excitement has no end
We all witnessed Anil Kapoor’s excitement and enthusiasm at the Oscar Award Ceremony yesterday and now the talented actor gives an interview in an equally excited mood. Read below..
• Did you think that the film would win so many
We were not thinking about winning at all. I just went to the awards and was enjoying it moment to moment. However once the film got the Best Sound, Best Editing and Best Cinematography award, I knew we would win further. The best part was that the entire America was rooting for the film and it was like a world phenomenon. The film has won every heart and even in India the film has gone on to make Rs 30 crore, which is huge.
• It seemed that you would go and dance when Rahman won the award…
Yes, of course. As a matter of fact when he was on the stage, Danny’s son and I were singing Jai ho loudly. I really had to restrain myself from going and dancing on the floor. The whole atmosphere was as if we were in Mumbai and we had invited some foreigners as guests.
• You rubbed shoulders with many Hollywood celebrities on the red carpet…
Yes, I met everyone. I was quite excited to meet Will Smith as he had also come over to my house when he was in India. Then there was Goldie Hawn; he is very good friends with her and we spent quite some time together. Everyone was so excited when the film won the Best Picture. In fact even before the red carpet, just meeting Sean Penn, Ben Kingsley and Michael Rourke was great. The awards were very well organized and getting all these five great actors for the best actor award was done very well and in a dignified manner. It was a very classy event and I was really thrilled to be a part of it.
• Did you mange to meet Angelina Jolie again?
Yes, I met her and Brad Pitt again on the red carpet and had this long conversation with them. They recognised me from far and came up to me. I complimented them for a wonderful speech they had given recently. I loved the way David Fincher directed Brad Pitt in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.
• You also attended quite a few parties…
Oh yes! From the Academy Governor’s Ball, where we had dinner, we went to Fox Searchlight’s party and from there to the Vanity Fair party and then came back to Four Seasons where we had breakfast and then we went to The Today’s Show. The entire star cast of the film was featured on the show.
• What is the feedback you are getting from India?
Everyone is calling my wife Sunita and Sonam. Mrs Raj Kapoor called my wife and my mother’s friends are calling and my father’s friends are calling. It’s just too amazing.
• What did you tell Rahman?
I think Rahman was looking very cute with one trophy in one hand and the other in the other hand. We just had early morning breakfast together. I went up to him and hugged him. He was there with his wife and I have never seen him happier.
• So, a grand celebration in India after you return?
I think a very, very grand party is due. Javed saab is throwing a party for all of us.
