Annu Kapoor, who was applauded for convincingly playing Dr Chaddha in ‘Vicky Donor’ last year, describes himself as a choosy actor.
“I am choosy because what will I do until there is a good script? I am not a star, I am an actor. If an actor does not get to show his acting, then what will he do in a film?” the 57-year-old questions.
Annu is all praises for Ranjit Kapoor, the director of his next film, Jai Ho Democracy — who, he says, has brought together both entertainment and information in one film. “It will be entertaining and informative. To make an informative issue entertaining is what Ranjit Kapoor does. He has proved it in his theatre work,” Annu says.
“Usually, to keep a film entertaining, a film-maker forgets about the realism. Similarly, realistic film-makers forget about entertainment. But in this film you will get both,” he adds. Jai Ho Democracy also stars Om Puri, Satish Kaushik, Annu and Adil Hussain.
