“My children are crazy about the show. They can’t believe I am doing a voice in Family Guy.”
Popular Bollywood actor, Anil Kapoor, will make a guest appearance in the American sitcom, Family Guy.
It has been reported the actor will be heading to Los Angeles at the end of April 2015, to dub for a character on the animated show.
His family is a big fan of the popular adult sitcom, created by actor and producer Seth MacFarlane.
Anil said: “My children are crazy about the show. They can’t believe I am doing a voice in Family Guy.”
But the Dil Dhadakne Do (2015) actor is one to keep the show’s fans in suspense, as details of his character remain a secret.
He said: “My character will appear with the Griffin family. It is a new experience for me. And you know how much I like going into new experiences.”
Indeed, he has taken on an interesting range of roles in Hollywood.
Anil played a TV show host in Slumdog Millionaire (2008). The film’s incredible success introduced him to audience around the world.
Anil followed up by scoring a major role in the eighth season of US series 24.
As the President of Kamistan, he was embroiled in an assassination attempt by his brother and a Russian terror plot against America.
He is also the lead character in the Indian adaptation of 24, playing Jai Singh Rathore – based on the death-defying CTU agent, Jack Bauer.
Now with a guest appearance in Family Guy, Anil will score a beautiful hat-trick in film, drama and sitcom.
The Primetime Emmy-winning animated show is known for its distinct adult humour that satirises American culture.
MacFarlane is a regular voice on the show. Other Hollywood actors, such as Seth Green and Mila Kunis, have also made guest appearances.
We cannot wait to find out if Anil will bring a twist of Bollywood to Family Guy!
