There is another Kapoor on the block, ready to test his acting skills. Before you think of a 20-something star kid, let us tell you we're talking about producer Boney Kapoor. The filmmaker, who was recently seen in a cameo in brother Anil Kapoor's film AK vs AK (2020), will essay a full-fledged role in Luv Ranjan's yet-untitled next featuring Ranbir Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. He will play Ranbir's father in the romantic comedy. Interestingly, the actor's great-grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor and Boney's producer father Surinder Kapoor were cousins.

Recounting how the acting offer came his way, Boney says, "When Luv and his team were writing the script, they had a simple reference point for the character of Ranbir's father — 'somebody like Boney Kapoor'. One fine day, they thought, why not have Boney play the role?" When Ranjan approached him initially, the producer turned down the offer as he had his hands full with several projects, including Ajay Devgn's Maidaan, Tamil film Valimai and Telugu offering Vakeel Saab.
