Bollywood Actor Anil Kapoor To Feature On FAMILY GUY!
While the politically incorrect and ridiculously brilliant ‘Family Guy’ is not unfamiliar for audiences all over the world, the Bollywood actor known as Anil Kapoor may be. However, most international audiences can recognize him as the Indian Regis Philbin in the Oscar winning ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ as well as playing supporting roles in Fox’s ’24’ and ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’. And now the two will be coming together, albeit, presumably for a brief collaboration.
Now it’s been reported that the actor will record a voice for a character to appear in Seth McFarlane’s animated, but adult orientated, TV series ‘Family Guy’! It’s still unknown exactly what character Kapoor will play, or any other details regarding his involvement, but this definitely makes Anil Kapoor the only Bollywood actor making significant strides within the commercially mainstream side of Hollywood. Sure, Irfan Khan may be more talented and has been involved in more Hollywood films that have been critical successes, but Kapoor can boast of more recognizably commercial roles and projects.
Here’s hoping that he’s not relegated to a mere 2 lines as a stereotypically racist Indian character. And given that this is ‘Family Guy’ we’re talking about, there is a high chance of that happening. Nonetheless, I am excited.
