This is about entertainment. I feel very reluctant to say this, but the chief guest (Kapoor) at the IFFI opening ceremony was dancing on stage? Is this an intention to make the film festival another arm of Bollywood, to entertain?” Anil performed his trademark jhakaas act on stage to songs filmed on him like One Two Ka Four and Dhak Dhak along with co-host Aditi Rao Hydari.

For the actress, it was a moment to remember as she was recreating Madhuri Dixit’s iconic moves.

Anil was felicitated for his contribution to cinema. Though the audience loved Anil and Aditi’s act, it looks like it did not go down well with some veterans at the festival.
