Actor Anil Kapoor says had Padmini Kolhapure not agreed to work with him in “Woh 7 Din”, he wouldn’t have been where he is today.
On Padmini’s birthday on Wednesday, Anil shared a photograph from the 1983 film “Woh 7 Din” and captioned it: “Happy birthday to my first leading lady Padmini Kolhapure! It’s because she agreed to do ‘Woh 7 Din’ that I am where I am today!”
Directed by Bapu, “Woh 7 Din” revolves around Dr. Anand who learns that his newly-wedded bride Maya loves someone else. He decides to reunite the two lovers at all costs and begins to search for the man.
Currently, Anil is working with actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the upcoming film Fanney Khan.
The musical comedy film is being directed by Atul Manjrekar.
Fanney Khan, being produced by Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, KriArj Entertainment, and T-Series, is the official remake of the Oscar-nominated 2000 Dutch film “Everybody’s Famous!”.
It is scheduled for a worldwide release on April 13, 2018.
After Shraddha Kapoor, Padmini Kolhapure and producer Pradeep Sharma’s son, Priyank Sharma, has emerged as the newest star kid on the block with big screen dreams. Mirror has learnt that the Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute alumnus is currently looking for roles. “As much as I tried to keep him away from Bollywood, it just didn’t work. At home the atmosphere was always non-filmi. Much before Priyank realised that his mom was a famous actress and his father a producer, he’d gravitated towards theatre in school. He was obsessive about it and everybody told us it’s in the genes so we didn’t try to dissuade him,” Padmini tells Mirror.
