MUMBAI: Yash Raj Films and Aditya Chopra, having finally convinced Anil Kapoor and his daughter Sonam to work together in a film, achieved a casting coup which earlier Rakeysh Mehra failed to do in Delhi 6.
Anil Kapoor doesn't deny the buzz. He says, "Aditya has narrated an idea for me and Sonam in a film together. And I really, really like it. In fact, this is the first time that I've liked something which has been offered to both of us."
Refusing to divulge any more details, Anil says, "I can't tell you if it's the role of father-daughter. But I can tell you that ideally when I do a film with Sonam, I don't want us to be cast in real-life roles."
Anil further reveals that he came close to sharing screen space with Sonam recently. "I was supposed to do a role in Anees Bazmi's Thank You which Sonam is doing. At that time, Katrina Kaif was supposed to do the part. Once Sonam stepped in, I opted out. I wanted our combination to be really special when it happened."
Anil adds that Aisha was not designed for Sonam. "It was an idea that Sonam and my younger daughter Rhea came up with. If I hadn't liked it, I wouldn't have produced it. In our production company, no film will be made to provide a chance to any of us. If I wanted to do that, I'd have produced a film for Sonam as a launch vehicle and not handed her over to Sanjay Leela Bhansali."
