Anil Kapoor Confirms His Hindi Remake of Modern Family Has Been Shelved

Anil Kapoor will be next seen in Anees Bazmee's Pagalpanti opposite John Abraham, Ileana D'cruz, Kriti Kharbanda and many others

Bollywood superstar Anil Kapoor has been in the industry for over 4 decades now. Making his debut in the 1979’s Hamare Tumhare, the actor has come a long way. Some of his films such as Mr. IndiaTezaab, and Taal went on to become superhits and it seems like there's no stopping to the actor as he can still be seen essaying very crucial roles in films. But apart from acting, Anil has also been very keen in producing films. He produced Aisha, Khoobsurat and Veere Di Wedding amongst many others, and he was also planning to create a Hindi version of hit TV series, Modern Family, however, latest reports reveal that the idea has been shelved.

Anil made the announcement of a Hindi remake of the show back in 2015. However at a recent event when he was asked when the audiences would be able to watch it, he replied, "It’s not happening. Unfortunately it didn’t materialise." This was not the first time the actor wanted to create a Hindi adaptation of an American show. Earlier, Anil had bought the rights of a terrorism drama 24 and also starred in the Hindi remake of the same name. The show aired back in 2013.

While the Modern Family remake didn't work out for the actor, he still has a busy few months to look forward to. Anil will be next seen in Pagalpanti opposite John Abraham and Ileana D'cruz which is all set to hit screens on November 22. Next, he will begin shooting for Karan Johar's multi-starrer Takht in which he will be essaying the role of a Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan. He will be sharing screen space with the likes of Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan and many others. It will also mark his first project with niece Janhvi Kapoor. Later, Anil will also star in Mubarakan 2, Malang and No Entry Mein Entry.
