Rakeysh Omprakash takes charge of Anil Kapoor


After directing his scions, it seems like Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra is all set to take charge of the ultimate ‘Jhakkas’ man of Bollywood, Anil Kapoor.

As per reports, a source said that the ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ director’s upcoming project is one of the three films that the 59-year-old actor has signed this year, apart from Mubarakan and Jugalbandi. “With Mehra, there is the trust factor, so Anil said yes, Anil truly believes that Rakeysh is one of the few Indian filmmakers who can spin sensible cinema into a box-office success,” the source said.

Reportedly, the move will be a commercial entertainer with the same depth that the 52-year-old director’s films carry.

Meanwhile, the Welcome Back actor’s son Harshvardhan is making his Bollywood debut with Mehra’s folklore drama Mirzya. Sonam too worked with the director in the award-winning movie Delhi-6.
