In course of the discussion, Karan Johar asked Anil Kapoor about his views on nepotism in the industry. At first, the veteran actor stated that he ignores such comments and prefers to focus on his work. But later revealed feeling insecure about Jackie Shroff’s success.


Anil Kapoor said that he felt insecure about Jackie Shroff. He said, “Jackie Shroff was an outsider in a way but still he got the first break from Subhash Ghai. So he himself became like an A-lister just with that one announcement. I, at that time, was doing bit roles, I was doing south Indian films. I did feel kind of, not feeling good about it. I felt insecure as he became a huge success. But the day I signed Yash Chopra’s film, I felt, ‘Oh now I’m fine.

Anil added, “I remember so well that and he was such a sweet guy. We would be shooting and whenever any autograph book would come to him, he knew they are taking his autograph. But (gestures Jackie passing the autograph book to Anil) ‘Sign Karna (Sign it)’. I knew that actually all of them had come for him but he would give it to me. Then I would sign and then he would sign.”

Anil and Jackie featured together in Andar Bahaar (1984), Yudh (1985), Karma (1986), Kala Bazaar, Kabhi Na Kabhi (1998), Ram Lakhan and Parinda (1989), 1942: A Love Story (1994), Trimurti (1995), and Lajja (2001) among others.
