Anil Kapoor moved to tears after Fighter co-star Hrithik Roshan praised him

'This man puts so much of himself into one scene'


Hrithik Roshan, at a press conference promoting Fighter, complimented actor Anil Kapoor for a scene and the latter had tears in his eyes. Roshan, recalling an incident from the film's sets said that Kapoor's dedication and passion towards his work inspired him. 

He also said that he hopes to God that he can maintain that kind of power in him to be able to give that much of him as he (Anil Kapoor) has. "I worked as an assistant while watching you (Anil Kapoor) in many of my dad's films. I have modelled my process of how to get into the film as an actor by seeing you. I spent 3-4 years doing that," Roshan added.

“This man puts so much of himself into that one scene that he is getting tears in his eyes after hearing a compliment - it's after four decades of doing what he does. Still he has that power to give that much into a scene. That day I again turned into an assistant and watched him," he said.

His Fighter co-star Deepika Padukone said, “Every actor of our generation aspires to be like you." 

The Siddharth Anand-directed film, which was released today, was given a U/A certificate by CBFC. The CBFC suggested two cuts, one of which encompasses ‘sexually suggested visuals’.
