While his son Harshvardhan Kapoor is gearing up for his big Bollywood debut, Anil Kapoor is currently busy with his TV series --24 season 2. However, the actor has revealed the details of his next acting venture with filmmaker Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra titled Fanay Khan.

Talking to the media recently, Anil revealed that his character in the film is that of a Muslim man from Mumbai's Bhendi Bazaar. He said:

Fanay Khan is expected to be a satirical film and the actor is supposed to portray the titular character in the film.

"Mehra has worked with my daughter and then my son. I am the last in queue. Maybe the last will be the best."

He also mentioned how difficult it will be for him to share screen space with his kids. He said:

"If all three of us came together in a film, it would be a war zone. We are three strong-headed individuals with antithetical opinions on how to act. Forget seeing eye-to-eye, we can't even look into one camera together."
