Anil Kapoor is one of the finest actors in Bollywood. From his unique dance moves to his famous word jhakaas, Anil Kapoor has made a cult of his own. Moreover, he keeps inspiring us with his amazing acting skills and his dedication to fitness. Over the years, he has entertained us with some exceptional films like Beta, Ram Lakhan, Tezaab, Mr India, Judaai, and more.
Apart from his professional life, Anil Kapoor often makes it to the headlines because of his personal life. The doting father of three, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Rhea Kapoor, and Harsh Varrdhan Kapoor has now become a grandfather. And he couldn't be any happier than this. For the unversed, Anil Kapoor's elder daughter, Sonam Kapoor and her husband, Anand Ahuja embraced parenthood after the birth of their baby boy on August 20, 2022.
Now, in an interview with ETimes, Anil Kapoor opened up about how it feels to be a grandfather. Elaborating more on it, the Dil Dhadakne Do actor revealed that becoming a grandfather is the best feeling in the world. Talking about his grandson, Anil Kapoor said he would always be by his side. In his words:
"Nothing can be better than this feeling. I would like to say my dialogue – 'I feel on top of the world'. I am busy wrapping up my assignments. There's Sunita (his wife), Sonam and Anand, who are looking after the baby. I am always there by his side. It is great to see him every day. He's so small right now, let him grow up a bit."
Earlier, on March 21, 2022, Anil Kapoor had taken to his Instagram handle and shared a series of pictures of his daughter, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja and her husband, Anand Ahuja. Sharing the pictures, the Judaai actor had expressed his happiness over Sonam embracing motherhood. In the photos, Sonam could be seen flaunting her baby bump. Atop it, Anil had written:
"Now preparing for the most exciting role of my life - GRANDFATHER!! Our lives will never be the same again and I couln't be more grateful! @sonamkapoor and @anandahuja you have made us happy beyond measure with this incredible news!"
A few months back, in an interview with Vogue, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja had talked about her father, Anil Kapoor's reaction to her pregnancy. Talking about the same, the Neerja actress had revealed that her father got emotional after hearing the news. Elaborating on the same, Sonam had said:
"I think my dad is scared. He doesn't see himself as a grandparent—for a long time, he didn't even see himself as a parent—but he was the one who got emotional when I told him I was expecting. He was shooting for Jugjugg Jeeyo in Chandigarh sometime before I broke the news to them and Mum and he were visiting some temples around the area. Now, dad isn't particularly religious or spiritual, so when Mum jokingly asked him what he was going to pray for, and he responded, A grandchild."
On the work front, Anil Kapoor will be next seen in Siddharth Anand's film, Fighter.
