Anil Kapoor dons Big B’s cloak in ‘Slumdog Millionaire’

Veteran Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor has agreed to do an ‘Amitabh Bachchan’ for the movie ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, which is roughly based on ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati'.

The upcoming movie is scripted on the bestseller ‘A and Q’ by Vikas Swarup. The story revolves around a Mumbai slum-dweller, a good-for-nothing tyke, who ends up winning in ‘Kaun Banega Crorepati’.

When one comes to think of a quizmaster, who can match the charm of the Big B, so for obvious reasons, Amitabh Bhachchan was the first choice to host a quiz show in the film. When he opted out due to certain reasons, Shah Rukh Khan was offered the role. But SRK also had date problems and could not accept the offer. And this is where Anil Kapoor stepped in as the quizmaster.

Besides Anil Kapoor, Irrfan Khan will also play a major role in the flick.
The highlight of this movie, which is bound to make viewers sit up and take notice, is big international names associated with it. It has been directed by acclaimed Hollywood filmmaker Danny Boyle.
The distributors are the big-banners: Fox Searchlight and Warner Bros.

What’s more, the composer for the film is AR Rehman, and lyricist the ever-mesmerising Gulzar. No wonder now that the flick is scheduled to be premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.

If not for Irrfan Khan, it is the first lucky international venture for Anil Kapoor. For decades, the Indian audience has cherished the entertaining and memorable characters played by Anil Kapoor. Now it’s the turn of overseas viewers to be wowed by his charm.
