As a sea of memes hit the social media world on how Anil Kapoor is reverse ageing in terms of his looks, the veteran actor says the secret to his youthful look at 62 is happiness ‘inside and outside’.
Kapoor recently posted a photograph of himself along with the cast of his upcoming film, Malang. The actor looked so fresh and agile that he could give any of the younger actors a run for their money.
The photograph became fodder for social media users, who went gaga over how the Dil Dhadakne Do (2015) star is de-aging. In fact, some users drew a comparison between his old and new pictures, saying how he looks younger now than his younger self.
When cricketer Harbhajan Singh joined Anil’s fans in asking what the actor eats to look like a 26-year-old at the age of 62, Anil tweeted: “Happy on the inside and outside! The secret is dedication and hard work (and a few cheat days.)”
The memes haven’t stopped still.
Some fans pointed out how Kapoor is ‘growing younger’, others said he may soon act with Kareena and Saif Ali Khan’s son Taimur and still look younger and some found humour in calling him a real-life version of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008). One user commented on how the actor could perhaps be seen as his daughter Sonam’s son in a movie.
In Mohit Suri’s Malang, Kapoor has teamed up with Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, and Kunal Kemmu. The film is scheduled for release on February 14, 2020.
