Also starring Ranveer Singh, Priyanka Chopra, Shefali Shah, Farhan Akhtar and Anushka Sharma, 'Dil Dhadakne Do' (DDD) is a family film, said the 58-year-old veteran.

"It is a family film. It is a Zoya Akhtar film so it has a distinct style. It is a film which you can easily say is world-standard," Anil said here on Sunday while promoting the film.

Set for a June 5 release, DDD also has another character - a dog named Pluto - which, according to Anil, is the real hero of the flick. "Pluto is the real hero of the film. We all make up the ensemble around him. He is the real rock star," said Anil, the father of actress Sonam.

Talking about his role, the "Slumdog Millionaire" actor said people will notice a difference in his look.

"I am tired of people asking me about there being no difference over the ages. In this film you will notice the difference and this is why I did the film. You will see the difference (faraq in Urdu) and you will be proud of it (faraq)," said Anil who sports a salt and pepper hairstyle.
