Anil Kapoor Is Scared Being Grandfather: Actress Sonam Kapoor and her husband Anand Ahuja welcomed their first child on Saturday, August 20. His father Anil Kapoor was one of the first to share the news for fans with a note about him becoming a ‘proud Nana-Nani’. In an interview before the birth of her child, Sonam had revealed that Anil actually had ‘fear’ about the child as he did not see himself as a maternal grandmother.
In an interview given to Vogue before the birth of the child, Sonam had said, ‘I think my father is scared. He doesn’t see himself as a maternal grandfather – for a long time, he didn’t even see himself as a parent – but he got emotional when I told him I was expecting my first child.
The actor also revealed how Anil reacted to the news when he first told him. Sonam said, “Sometime before I informed him, he was shooting for ‘Jugjug Jio’ in Chandigarh and was going to some temples in the area with his mother. Now, Dad isn’t particularly religious or spiritual, so when Mom jokingly asked him what he was going to pray for, he replied, “A grandson.”
Sonam and Anand tied the knot in the year 2018 after dating for several years. Both divide their time between Mumbai, Delhi and London. This is his first child. Sonam was last seen in a full-fledged role in the 2019 film ‘The Zoya Factor’ opposite Dulquer Salmaan. He also made a cameo in the 2020 Netflix film ‘AK vs AK’, playing a semi-fictional version of himself. Sonam will next be seen in the crime thriller ‘Blind’.
