"I was very pleasantly surprised and happy (when it was announced that 'Dil Dhadakne Do' will have a gala screening in Kuala Lumpur)," Anil said against an overwhelming view of the iconic Petronas Towers, which he first remembers seeing in Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones's 1999 film "Entrapment".

"Dil Dhadakne Do" is said to function around a dysfunctional Punjabi family on a cruise trip, and Anil has been cast in the role of the patriarch of the Mehra family. A look at his character tells that he's an urbane chic dad -- much like his real self!But not ready to give out much detail about his character, and the film, the 58-year-old simply said, "What can I say about a film directed by Zoya Akhtar. I don't have to say much. Everybody knows the kind of films she makes and the scripts she writes. Her last one was stupendous. Hopefully, this time will be better."
