Anil Kapoor reveals that his wife Sunita was “supposed” to play AK vs AK but backed out, “She is the one we were scared of.
Actor Anil Kapoor has stated that his wife Sunita was supposed to be a part of AK vs AK but decided not to do the film. He said that she was the one everyone was afraid of when they were making the film.
Almost all of Anil Kapoor’s immediate family appears in the film AK vs. AK, but conspicuously absent is his wife Sunita. In the film, Anil and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap play exaggerated versions of their public personas, with appearances by everyone from Anil’s sons – Harsh Varrdhan and Sonam Kapoor – to his brother, producer Boney Kapoor.
In an interview, the actor said that Sunita was included in an earlier draft of the script, but he decided to sit out of the project to fulfill a decision he made long ago.
Anil said, “Sunita was the one we were all afraid of, that’s all.” He said she has been part of the industry for many years, but made the decision that she didn’t want to be “a familiar face.” Director Vikramaditya Motwane said that at one point they tried to broach the subject of appearing in the film with her. “We were at her house one day, still arguing, she had already said no, and you put me in front of her and said ‘Baby, Vikram wants to ask you something’.” He said before he could finish his sentence, she shot him a look and that was the end of it.
