‘The Last Envelope’ will be released soon, and Annu Kapoor is preparing for it. Sheeba Chaddha is a contributing actor. On October 12, the movie will be shown at JioCinema Film Fest. In an interview with Garima Das of Outlook India before the release of “The Last Envelope,” the seasoned actor discussed his career path, his assertion that he is not a “superstar,” and much more.
Kapoor expressed his disappointments and appreciation as he looked back on his journey of more than 40 years. I was never interested in acting, and I am not one of the fortunate individuals whose goals may be realized. That’s OK. Indian society is inextricably linked to the film industry. So there are many opportunities for individuals to make money, get notoriety, or gain recognition in this nation via anything relating to film or its branches,” the actor remarked.
Annu Kapoor previously said in an interview that he is not Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, or Salman Khan. As a “very small and struggling actor,” he described himself. The “Dream Girl 2” actor said, “Because I am not a superstar and I had to slog a lot and work very hard to prove my worth in the film industry,” when asked why he stated that. Unfortunately, it is a common indicator of a society that values success over talent, where people are judged and evaluated on the basis of their social success rather than their talent.
”So, Amitabh Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Aamir Khan, or Akshay Kumar are superstars,” he said. They are in God’s hands, and I am not a superstar, plain and simple. Nothing incorrect about that. You can’t brand me a sinner or claim that because I’m not a star, I’ll have to spend eternity in hell while they are, and have every right to be, in paradise.
“This is not a topic that is significant to me. I don’t have the time or desire to think about this issue much. It doesn’t really matter or matter much to me. I have every right to voice my ideas and beliefs as long as I do not hurt society or my nation,” Kapoor said.
He chuckled and said, “Everything is free determined whether you will achieve or become successful after doing hard work or you will be a flop man even after doing the hard work,” when questioned about the harsh realities of the profession. Film industry is part and parcel of Indian society. Cinema has great effect not just today but even 50 years ago too. We have many opportunities for young people to make money and gain notoriety, particularly in this age of rapid technology advancement. In this regard, Indian society has changed dramatically for the better and no longer exhibits the conservatism it did a few decades ago. Now we have welcomed affectionately and warmly heroines like Sunny Leone or Jacqueline Fernandez. In this subject Indian society has grown ahead and that’s fantastic.”
