24 turned out to be popular among the Indian masses. Many people were glued to their television sets as the series unfolded because the conviction with which Anil Kapoor played the character of Jai Singh Rathod (a man with an army background who is torn between loyalty to his family and to his country, India) won everyone’s hearts in no time. It was also a whiff of fresh air from all the saas-bahu sagas and for once, people were ready to digress from senseless household dramas and switch from their favorite show to 24.
“I am not normal, I am a mad man before the camera,” said Anil Kapoor in one of his interviews. His statement bears testimony to his successful career stint of three decades in the film industry and his maverick ability to experiment with his roles, be it films or TV.
Off screen too, the actor is ready for challenges, even if they are spontaneous and he makes sure that he does full justice to it.
Don’t believe us?
All Access‘s host Garima Kumar barged into Anil Kapoor’s room and threw a challenge that he was certainly not prepared for.
He paid a surprise visit to few homes and the fans revelled in their once-in-a-lifetime moment when they met him in this unanticipated way, with unbridled joy on their faces.
Some of them indulged in the casual yet star-struck banters.
While some of them stuck to the old tradition of clicking selfies and getting autographs.
One of the daredevil aunties also invited him to cook theplas in her kitchen, an experience that she will most certainly cherish for a lifetime.
