New Delhi: He has been in the film industry for almost four decades, but award winning actor-producer Anil Kapoor says he is not ready to open his own acting school yet.

“Anybody who wants to do something like that...education is something for which you need to leave everything else and focus on it. You can’t do five things at a time. You are doing this and that and running a school too...I think that doesn’t work.
“If you see globally, those who have got into education or philanthropy, they have left everything else. And I am not ready yet,” Anil told IANS.
Meanwhile, the 58-year-old has his eyes set on the release of his next film “Dil Dhadakne Do”, which will also be screened in Kuala Lumpur during 16th edition of the International Indian Film Academy (IIFA) Weekend and Awards in June.
Also starring Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Shefali Shah, Farhan Akhtar and Anushka Sharma, Anil is looking forward to the screening of the Zoya Akhtar directorial at the film extravaganza.
“This year, I think one of the high points of IIFA will be the screening of ‘Dil Dhadakne Do’. The entire star cast will be there and it’s a huge star cast. There will be surprises on the awards night which is on June 7. It will be great,” said the ‘friend” of IIFA.
Seen with salt and pepper look in the film, the father of actress Sonam Kapoor likes essaying the role of patriarch in movies.
Talking about his character, he said: “He is the patriarch. Patriarch is an exciting role to portray. In ‘Virasat’ (1997), I played a patriarch in the second half of the film. All the decisions are controlled by the patriarch, which makes the role exciting.”
