Five Favorite Films with Slumdog Millionaire's Anil Kapoor

Summary

Slumdog Millionaire's American audiences were enticed to watch by the name of director Danny Boyle or the movie's kinetic exploration of an exotic, far-away underbelly. In India, the selling point very well may have been Anil Kapoor. Kapoor, who portrays the movie's shifty host of India's version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, is the movie's biggest Bollywood name, something fashioned over three decades of work, which includes Mr. India (an early work by Elizabeth director Shekhar Kapur for which Kapoor received great critical acclaim). The story of Kapoor's first international movie is a story we know well now -- the plot, the controversies, the international box office success, and ithe endless trophies (including an ultimate Oscar Best Picture and Kapoor's own share of a SAG oustanding cast award). As he pursues new projects in America, RT sat down with Kapoor to get his Five Favorite Films. Back to Article

Tom, dude thanks so much for that. You watch that and it's like...why do I spend so much time commenting online, caring about voicing my opinion and worse, mocking those that don't agree with me? This is my last comment. Thank you for saving me from this enslavement.

I was quite surprised when i asked some of my American friends about 'The Great Dictator'as 5 out of 10 dont see it as a great film,but in India 8 out of 10 people say that it is one of the greatest film made and its been inspiration to many artists and directors

Mr Kapoor just might well have selected all Chaplin's movies instead of three different movies by Chaplin. That would have given him two more movies to select for his list and show his taste for movies. Nonetheless, his top five list are good but not the very best. Godfather excluded.

Anil Kapoor is a solid actor. You're posting and you haven't even seen Slumdog? Genius. Talk about an informed opinion. Watch Kapoor in My Wife's Murderer. Not every Indian movie has singing and dancing.
