Anil Kapoor Opens Up About Thank You For Coming

Anil Kapoor will be having a cameo appearance in Thank You For Coming. The film stars Bhumi Pednekar in the lead role.

The recently released film Thank You For Coming is living up to its tagline Rise-Rebel-Repeat. The movie has attainted global recognition owing to the phenomenal early international reviews and overwhelming audiences response at the 48th Toronto International Film Festival.

The evergreen actor Anil Kapoor will be seen in a special appearance in the film which is headlined by five actresses Bhumi Pednekar, Shehnaaz Gill, Dolly Singh, Kusha Kapila and Shibani Bedi.

Elated for the overwhelming response Thank You For Coming is receiving, Anil Kapoor speaks about how it is important to make films which are female-forward. The actor shared, “Bollywood needs to make more movies by and for women that will connect with international audiences. I’ve done a lot of films that were led by women, where I was a supporting actor, and I just liked the stories”.

Directed by Karan Boolani, Thank You For Coming tackles themes of female friendship, single women risking shame and criticism for wanting to remain unmarried and independent, and the pursuit of sex and pleasure by modern-day women.

Expressing her excitement, Bhumi had earlier shared, “This is my first time at TIFF. I am ecstatic that I am going there with a film that is so close to my heart, Thank You For Coming. What makes it more special is that we’ve been selected for a Gala Premier at the prestigious Roy Thompson hall. As an official selection and with the viewing we will have, I am extremely excited for the experience to come. I’ve never experienced watching a film of mine with such a large and diverse audience. To be walking that red carpet with my co actors, director Karan Boolani and our producers Anil kapoor and Rhea Kapoor is going to be memorable.

Produced by Balaji Telefilms Limited and Anil Kapoor Film Communication Network Pvt. Ltd, directed by Karan Boolani, and written by Radhika Anand and Prashasti Singh, Thank You For Coming will be released in theaters worldwide on October 6th, 2023.
