Not that any other year is any different  for Anil Kapoor. But this year  this indefatigable actor’s life has been a whirlwind of  events. Son Harshvardhan and daughter  Sonam’s films being released on  the same day (Bhavesh Joshi and Veere di Wedding respectively) and  most important of all, daughter Sonam’s marriage.

Anil now has Race  3  coming up for release this Eid. Amid the frenzy, this is what he  has to say about the  film. “It has been one helluva  joyride for me. I’ve been a  part of the Race franchise from its inception. But this time there was Salman Khan on board. That made all the difference in the world. I’ve worked with Salman  in the past as an actor, but not as a producer. Salman and  (co-producer) Ramesh Taurani are  fantastic to work with.  The way Salman looked out for everybody in Race 3, be it Bobby Deol, Saqib Salim, Jacqueline Fernandez, Daisy Shah or me, made  the whole experience so much fun.”

So does Anil have a substantial  role in Race 3? “I’ve moved on. It’s done. I never dwell on what’s done. I’ve four releases coming up . Every release is like  the first  for me. Every day is  a new challenge for me. I feel  I am just starting out in life.” Does he  starve himself  to look so fit? “These are  myths about my diet. I eat well. In fact I’ve just  had a lavish lunch before speaking to you. The  idea is to burn the  calories, which I am doing these days by spinning. My  exercise  regimen varies according to my mood. Sometimes it’s swimming, sometimes cycling, sometimes  running or walking. Right now  it’s spinning.”

We end with Anil’s niece Janhvi’s  debut as an actress in Dhadak. “We are  all very excited. I was there  for her at the trailer launch. The  film looks good. Janhvi has the genes. And the boy(Ishaan Khattar) is also very confident. She already has a hit song in the  film. It all looks good. Fingers crossed.”
