Mumbai: Veteran actor Anil Kapoor describes the experience of screening his 1987 film ‘Mr India’ for students and staff members of Indiana University in the US as amazing.
He flew all the way to Indiana on October 7 for the special screening of the iconic movie in which he played a man who could become invisible.
The film was screened for the students, teachers and staff of Indiana University. The audience watched the Shekhar Kapur-helmed fantasy-comedy with rapt attention. This was followed by an interactive session with the audience where Anil was made to answer innumerable questions. Anil sat with the students and the faculty to watch the film.
“It was three hours long! I asked the students whether they were exhausted for the question and answer session after watching the film for three hours. They not only sat glued watching the film but stayed on for the interaction session as well.
"The Indiana University students were amazed that my character's home in the film was a set. They said it looked too real to be a set," said the actor.
Anil said he was as curious about the students as they were about him.
"I had as many questions for them as they had for me. Understandably, they were not only asking about 'Mr India', but also about my other films, about my life and career. They wanted to know if we were going to do a sequel and who would play the roles,” he shared.
