Annu Kapoor is a well-known face of Indian cinema. The actor has done it all. However, recently, Annu Kapoor, in an interview, talked about the times when he had taken up projects that he didn’t but had to do for money. Talking to Hindustan Times, Annu Kapoor said that he feels frustrated from the inside, but he can’t do anything and takes up projects that he doesn’t like.
“I have to run the kitchen; I have to look after my family. I am not Amitabh Bachchan or Shah Rukh Khan, or Salman Khan, I am just a very small, struggling actor, even after 40 years. And in this country, nobody is bothered about how talented or dedicated you are, as long as you are handsome, and you have done a couple of films as a hero. It’s fine,” HT quoted Annu Kapoor as saying.

I have no idea; I only know Crash Course,” said Annu Kapoor.
