We got a chance for a quick rendezvous with Anil Kapoor, when he arrived in Dubai for the launch of Malabar Gold and Diamonds 136th showroom in Al-ain, United Arab Emirates.
It was an overwhelming moment to meet the Jhakkas hero. More than 25 years in Indian cinema, Anil Kapoor is one of the most successful Indian actors who has made his presence felt in Hollywood, Bollywood, Indian & American TV.
Anil Kapoor says, “Something positive always happens every time I visit Dubai”.
UrCuppaLife : Being father of 2 very successful daughters, how did you empower your daughters?
Anil Kapoor : For me it’s beyond empowering them. I feel they are superior. I don’t even think about it. For me women are superior. Since the time I have met my wife, my approach towards life has changed – I consider women completely superior to men in every way. I look up to them, especially my family – all 3 of the women they control our lives.
UrCuppaLife : What is that one event that has changed your life completely?
Anil Kapoor : There is as such no event that has changed my life. I think I just keep on absorbing, observing, enjoying and experiencing and being grateful to almighty for giving me life. So I try to improve myself and evolve myself and learn from life and enjoy life. Life is everything – I am so grateful to God for every breath, I have. For me I feel, every breath is eventful.
UrCuppaLife : What keeps you coming back to Dubai?
Anil Kapoor : Sometimes, I feel that there are certain places – the feel of the country – the soil of the land – just suits you. Somewhere my destiny, my stars are such, that I feel some kind of connect. Something positive always happens every time I come to Dubai. I don’t plan my visits, they keep on happening, opportunities keep coming like shooting for films, like today (8th Oct 2015) I am here for the opening of Malabar Gold and Diamonds.
I have visited Dubai for attending the Dubai Film Festival, shooting for my films like Mission Impossible, Race, Welcome Back. I have also come to Dubai for my film premiers. It keeps happening.
I remember there was a picture of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum , ruler of Dubai, putting his hand on my shoulder, blessing me. The picture was there as soon as I entered the airport. Dubai gives me a feeling of home away from home.
UrCuppaLife : What is your fitness mantra?
Anil Kapoor : I think for me it’s become a way of life and like the way I drink water, I breath– Family and being healthy and fit is a way of my life. There is no mantra to fitness – it is just a way of life.
I just get up in the morning and I do it. It’s like brushing your teeth, you don’t get out of your house without brushing, I don’t go out with out exercising. My work also motivates me to be fit, my work my has given me so much, the least that I can do is to keep myself fit and fresh to do my work.
Last year, he celebrated his birthday in Dubai with his family. UrCuppaLife wishes that our very own Superstar Anil Kapoor keeps coming back to Dubai with his family for his special moments and celebrations. UrCuppaLife had great time interviewing the Superstar Anil Kapoor & hopes to see him soon.
