Anil Kapoor-Jackie Shroff on screen together after 15 years
Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff will share screen space for the first time in 15 years in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout At Wadala. The pair were seen together in some major hits like Ram Lakhan, Karma and Parinda back in the 80s and 90s, and last featured with Pooja Bhatt in Priyadarshan’s Kabhi Na Kabhi (1998).
Talking about his co-star, Shroff said to IANS: "No, I didn't see any change in him. He is as enthusiastic as he was earlier. I hope he remains like this always. He works so passionately in front of the camera that I get inspired by him."
"Whenever we have worked together, I myself get very serious after seeing his passion and sincerity," added the 53-year-old.
The Slumdog Millionaire star too enjoyed working with Shroff and after the shooting, they caught up over lunch.
"We were so engrossed in the work that our first priority was to do our scene well, so we prepared for the scene first and then shot it. After that we had lunch together, we cracked jokes, laughed with each other, and forgot our dialogues. It was exactly like the way we used to work earlier. There was no change," said Kapoor, who is also 53.
While Kapoor is playing ACP Ishaque Baghwan, Shroff will be seen as a police commissioner in the film.
Shootout At Wadala also stars Sonu Sood, Tusshar Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut, Manoj Bajpayee, Ronit Roy, Mahesh Manjrekar and John Abraham as gangster Manya Surve. It releases on 3 May 2013.
