Anil Kapoor has two calling cards on a global level: ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ and ‘24′. His portrayal of Omar Hassan, President of the fictional Islamic Republic of Kamistan in the winning telly series ‘24′ has fetched him wide appreciation.
Kapoor, Brand Ambassador of South Africa, was in the country on government invitation for the FIFA World Cup Finals, and learnt that he had a celeb visitor waiting to meet him at his Johannesburg hotel.
Naomi Campbell, that is.
And reportedly, when the duo did meetâ€¦ the ex supermodel kept addressing AK as “President”. It took a while for Kapoor to figure out that she was referring to him as his character in ‘24′!
Apparently, Campbell introduced Kapoor to her boyfriend Vladislav Doronin; the two exchanged numbers and email ids and promised to keep in touch. And yeah, when she learnt that his daughter Sonam Kapoor was shooting in London, she took down her number too and promised to meet her in person too.
