Anil Kapoor, who made the critically acclaimed Gandhi My Father and Subhash Ghai’s Black & White, decided not to make serious cinema for the time being as those two films fared miserably at the box office. His mass masala films Welcome and Race raked in lot of moolah.
Anil is currently producing a comedy film, Shortkut starring Akshaye Khanna, Arshad Warsi and Amrita Rao. Anil and Sanjay Dutt appear in an item number. His next production stars Sanjay Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh and himself in the lead to be directed by Anees Bazmee. This film will also be a comedy.
