Popular actor, Anil Kapoor is one of the hottest fathers in the film industry, however, it was on August 20, 2022, when he was promoted to one of the most dashing grandfathers in the film industry after his grandson, Vayu Ahuja's birth. The actor was on cloud nine when his gorgeous daughter, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja had given birth to an adorable baby boy, making him a grandfather for the first time in his life.
The renowned actor, Anil Kapoor has already revealed the emotions he had experienced after he was told about Vayu's birth in many of his interviews. However, in a recent media interaction, he talked about his growing connection with the little munchkin, leaving everyone in awe of his bond with little Vayu.
During an event in Mumbai, Anil Kapoor joined iconic Hollywood actor, George Clooney for a candid conversation about international cinema and much more. During the course of their conversation, the Hollywood star asked the Bollywood icon to shed some light on his grandfather duties. Opening up about the same, the doting nana admitted that he is enjoying every minute of being a grandfather to his two-month-old grandson. After telling George that the meaning of his grandson's name, Vayu is wind, Anil recalled his growing bond with him. The actor admitted that his bonding with Vayu is way faster than the speed with which he had connected with his kids, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Rhea Kapoor, and Harshvardhan Kapoor, when they were young. He said :
"When I became a grandfather, I couldn't process it. It took me some time to process it. I am still in a process. I was in Austria, I started slowly connecting with my grandson. His name is Vayu, means wind. I am slowly and steadily connecting with him, much quicker than I connected with my children."
Going further in the conversation with George Clooney, the Bollywood actor recalled one of the strolls with his grandson, Vayu and shared how that particular stroll was quite memorable than the rest so far. Opening up about the same, Anil Kapoor shared that once when he was on a stroll with Vayu, the munchkin tried eating the sun. The hilarious yet cute revelation left everyone in splits, and sharing more details of Vayu's first interaction with mother nature, Anil said:
"I took him for a walk, (there was) beautiful weather. He was looking at the sky and the sun and trying to eat. That was his first exposure to the universe, to the planet, to the nature. It was wonderful to see how he was reacting to it."
A few weeks back, on September 27, 2022, the dapper grandfather, Anil Kapoor had taken to his Instagram handle and had shared a rare family picture to wish his mother, Nirmal Kapoor, on her birthday.
