Mumbai: Anil Kapoor is proud of international success of Priyanka Chopra and the actor says he is happy with the way the actress is working on her career.
Priyanka has been creating waves on the international scene since her American TV debut “Quantico”. Heaping praise on his 34-year-old “Dil Dhadakne Do” co-star, Anil told reporters here, “Whatever I say about Priyanka will be less. I am so happy that today not only Indian audience but the whole world is singing her praise. She has become a global star today.”
The 59-year-old actor was speaking last evening at the launch of a song from Priyanka’s maiden Marathi production “Ventilator”. Anil said he came to launch the track for the actress and her mother Madhu Chopra.
“I am here for my friendship with Priyanka and her mother. Madhuji called me and I knew I had to come. Some bonds are like that, you don’t need to talk daily, but they are strong enough…,” he said.
“I got to know Priyanka closely after working on ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’ and I realised, she is not just a huge star hut a fantastic human being. It’s my honour to be here,” he said.
“Ventilator” will reportedly have a cameo by Priyanka.
It will feature several veteran Marathi film and theatre actors. The film has been helmed by Rajesh Mapuskar, who previously directed “Ferrari Ki Sawaari”, starring Sharman Joshi and Boman Irani.
