Don’t marry for the sake of it: Anil to daugh­ters

While par­ents of­ten want their kids to set­tle down as soon as pos­si­ble, ac­tor Anil Kapoor, who has two daugh­ters — ac­tor Sonam Kapoor and film­maker Rhea Kapoor, says he is in no hurry for them to tie the knot.

Anil says the im­por­tance given to mar­riage has changed now and he wants his daugh­ters to marry only when they feel they are ready. “Things have changed now. It all de­pends on what makes them happy. I tell them to only think of mar­ry­ing when it makes them happy and not any time soon. Don’t marry for the sake of mar­ry­ing,” he says.

Mean­while, Anil is all praises for Sonam, who he feels han­dles her­self very well in the pub­lic eye. “Ev­ery year she has im­proved and be­come bet­ter. And I think she han­dles her­self pretty well,” he says, adding that he can­not pre­pare her for all the pub­lic scru­tiny that comes with the ter­ri­tory.

“That is the most dif­fi­cult part of this pro­fes­sion and that is what I have al­ways told her. But no mat­ter how much I men­tally pre­pare her, there will al­ways be ups and downs and highs and lows. That’s a part of life. You have to deal with it,” he says.

While they have no plans as of now, Anil says that he would love to work with Sonam. “At the mo­ment we are not work­ing to­gether. In fact, as ac­tors we have never worked to­gether. There is no fu­ture project at the mo­ment where I can say that we are work­ing to­gether. But we hope to work to­gether. The films which she has done for the com­pany, like Aisha, were pro­duced by my younger daugh­ter. So it’s they who have worked to­gether, rather than me,” he says.

Mean­while the ac­tor is also work­ing on mak­ing a desi ver­sion of Amer­i­can show Mod­ern Fam­ily.
