Sanjeev Kapoor Is Ready To Make His Bollywood Debut With Lunch Box and Super Nani
From cooking to dancing, renowned chef Sanjeev Kapoor has done it all and now he is all set to prove his acting mettle. Buzz states that Sanjeev will be soon making his acting debut with two films Lunch Box and Super Nani.
‘Lunch Box’ is directed by Anurag Kashyap’s protege Ritesh Batra and stars Irrfan Khan, Nawazuddin Siddique and Nimrat Kaur. It’s a love story set in Mumbai between a young housewife and a middle aged man. Reportedly, Kashyap has got foreign producers to collaborate on the project.
‘Super Nani’, based on women’s empowerment, shows how a grandson inspires his grandmother to do something worthwhile in life. Actress Rekha will be seen playing Sharman Joshi’s grandma in the Indra Kumar-directed movie.
“By default or otherwise I have ended up in a Bollywood movie. Currently I have two movies on the floor — Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Lunch Box’ and Inder Kumar’s ‘Super Naani’. Both are very talented and respected directors from the industry. I will be playing a cameo,” Kapoor told PTI.
The Chef also said that he won’t mind taking up a big role as well. He shared, “If I am offered a big role I would definitely consider it. I had never thought that I would end up being the first chef in the world to own a television channel (he has launched the channel Food Food). I think one can’t predict the future but the chances of me turning into a film producer in the future must not be ruled out”.
