Veteran actor Anil Kapoor is currently busy promoting his upcoming movie ‘JugJugg Jeeyo’, and has a long line of projects in the pipeline. However, when asked, Anil says that he has no immediate plans of return to Hollywood.

Speaking in an interview, Anil said, “There are shows, films, which are pitched to me. Sometimes things don’t work out, because of various reasons. It might be the role. It might be the script, it might be the timing when they approached me. And sometimes it might be situations where I feel as if it is not worth my time to go there for this kind of film, or this kind of role.”

Anil is, however, open to working in the West if the idea excites him. He said, “But I’m always open to jobs which challenge me, which will help me grow my craft as an actor. And I would love to work with filmmakers who can challenge me and can make me a better actor in the West. I’m looking forward to that.”

On the work front, Anil will be seen in Ranbir Kapoor-starrer 'Animal’ and Hrithik Roshan and Deepika Padukone-starrer ‘Fighter’. He has Olympic gold medal winner shooter Abhinav Bindra’s biopic alongside his son Harsh Varrdhan in the lead. Anil will also be seen in the Indian adaptation of the successful BBC series ‘The Night Manager.’
