Bollywood’s popular film producer Boney Kapoor is all set to make his acting debut at the age of 67. Belonging to a filmy family he never became an actor instead he opted to produce movies. Whereas his brothers Anil Kapoor and Sanjay Kapoor are successful actors. Well, he will be soon seen as an actor in Luv Ranjan’s next movie starring Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor.
In an old interview from 1999, Boney Kapoor revealed why he did not become an actor. Starting with his journey the anchor asked him how beneficial it was to be a son of Surinder Kapoor in this film industry. To this, Boney said, “Bohot zayada faydeman tha, mujhe apne aapko introduce karne ki zarurat nhi padhta tha, isse waqt bhi bachta tha (It was very beneficial, I was not supposed to introduce myself, it actually saved time).”
Further, he spoke of whether he did not give a thought to becoming ‘a hero’. He said, “Puri tarah nhi aaya tha kuch kuch aaya tha but kyuki Anil ka khayal mere se zayda tha pakka tha, mujhe backseat leni padi, uss khayal ko pura karne ke liye kissi ko peechne bhi rehna tha (Little bit yes, but not entirely because even Anil wanted to become an actor and was really firm with his decision, so in order to fulfil his dream, I had to take a back seat).”
He further added, “Fayda hi hua hai. meri aaj tak jitni filme bani hai, since Sanjay and Anil have started their career, me and Anil started their careers together, initially, woh mere saath haath batata tha, fir woh hero bana, Hum Paach meri pehli independent film thi. We had our family concerns. Anil helped me with every aspect and every department, he provided inputs.”

The shooting of the first schedule was wrapped up in Spain later the makers continued filming the second leg in Mumbai. The film title and release date remain unknown.
