Anil, Sonam not to share screen space


Anil has turned down a chance to co-star with his daughter Sonam in her second film — Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra’s much talked-about Dilli 6.

“It’s true Rakeysh Mehra offered me a role in Dilli 6, but I declined it,” Anil said.

For now, Anil has decided to stay away from offers to share screen space with his daughter. “Unless something really exceptional comes up, I wouldn’t like to work with my daughter at the moment. In fact, she is opposed to it much more than I am.” Sonam added, “I’ve done an AIDS feature with my dad. He was more worried about me than himself throughout the shoot. So, I don’t think it’s fair to him to have me as a co-star.” —HNS
