Riding high on the critical and commercial success of SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (SM), Anil Kapoor is looking forward to an eventful and creatively satisfying year. The 'jhakaas' actor has been showered with praises for his unique portrayal of the host of a game show in SM, a role enacted to perfection (on television) by the likes of megastar Amitabh Bachchan and Bollywood's global super star, Shah Rukh Khan (in their own styles), in the highly popular TV game show, KAUN BANEGA CROREPATI. But Anil not only walked away with a lot of critical acclaim but also provided the star value to SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE, thus enhancing its box office potential to an extent.

CHECK OUT: Anil Kapoor better than Big B, SRK?

Well, what comes as a surprise is the fact that Anil Kapoor's character in the film is not inspired by Amitabh Bachchan or Shah Rukh Khan. In fact, it was modeled more on the British host of WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE, Chris Tarrant. Anil watched the tapes and read the literature on hosting the show that the producers sent him, but the difficult part was that he had to appear to be a seasoned host, chairing his 1,000th show! And for that he contacted the producer of KAUN BANEGA CROREPATI, Siddharth Basu, who was gracious enough to help Anil put up a mock set in his office, where he would go to rehearse everyday.

So, it was sheer hard work that resulted in a stellar performance by the seasoned actor, whose longevity and dedication to his craft has made him the subject of admiration amongst all his colleagues and fans!
