Shekhar Kapur’s Picture Appearance
Anil Kapoor and his children can be seen in a white and brown filter in a photo from the movie Mr. India that Shekhar Kapur released. Anil Kapoor is depicted in the image wearing a shirt and pants, gazing upwards, holding a cute girl in his hand, and surrounded by some young children.
Shekhar Kapur captioned his post, “Mr. India was not the only ‘invisible’ person on the set. There was an 11-year-old kid constantly with me, that no one else could see, except me. I called him ‘mini me’ for he was my alter ego as an 11-year-old. With the curiosity, enthusiasm, restlessness, and attention span of an 11-year-old.
After every shot I would turn to ‘mini me’ and ask for approval .. and unless I saw the joy or emotion or excitement on ‘mini men’s face .. I would reconceive the shot ..I guess that’s why Mr. India still lives and still feels fresh and youthful.. it’s because ‘mini me’ hasn’t grown a day older .. and is still dancing joyfully in every frame ..”
