When it comes to Anil Kapoor, one is bound to experience some great entertainment. And being the great actor that he is, it seem’s he is ready to take on any role; even if that means playing a senior to someone who is his senior.

With the news that he is all set to play a father to Salman Khan in the forthcoming ‘Race 3’, Kapoor was asked how he felt about it. “I don’t have a problem with it. I am also ready to play the role of Amitji’s (Amitabh Bachchan) father as I am an actor,” Times of India reports the actor expressing.

Despite having been a part of the first two films, Kapoor was sure to keep mum about the details of the third, as he explained, “I have signed a non-disclosure clause, so I won’t be able to give much details of the film, but all I can say is that I have been a part of both ‘Race’ (2008 – 2013) films earlier. But the story of ‘Race 3’ is very different and having said that, I think all elements of previous part of ‘Race’ are intact in this film as well for the audience’s entertainment.”

In the meantime, Kapoor has just wrapped his shooting schedule for the Atul Manjrekar directorial ‘Fanne Khan’ with Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Having working with her before, Kapoor spoke about working with her and the film. “I always had good relations with everybody. And I had a great experience working with Aishwarya in this film too. I finished shooting of my portions for the film (on Friday) and now the shoot of ‘Fanne Khan’ has been completed from my side.”

Set to release on 15th June, ‘Fanne Khan’ will also star Rajkummar Rao and Divya Dutta.
