Anil Kapoor never skips a chance to be in the headlines both for his personal and professional lives. The actor was recently in the news when his son, Harshvardhan Kapoor was trolled after the latter advised people to purchase branded sneakers instead of their copies. The young actor received a lot of criticism, and some people even dragged his daddy, Anil, into the matter. However, Anil never gave any attention to such criticism as he has been in the industry long enough to know how to deal with these sticky situations.
This time around, Anil Kapoor finds himself right at the centre of a controversy as a Reddit user claimed that he liked an Instagram video about his niece, Janhvi Kapoor’s alleged plastic surgery. The Reddit user even shared a screengrab of the video, and Anil Kapoor’s official IG handle can be seen in the likes column. Although the video wasn’t trolling Janhvi, but it was speculating that the young actress has probably invested some bucks for going under the knife. However, the video is no longer available on social media.

As soon as the thread gained some engagement on Reddit, many users started taking a dig at Anil Kapoor for not watching things properly before liking it. However, some people mentioned that it could be a human error and Anil Kapoor would’ve liked it by mistake. One user even went ahead and started speculating about a rift between Boney Kapoor and Anil Kapoor. Not only this, the user also stated that Anil was trying to take revenge on Boney by liking such posts about his daughter. The comment can be read as:
"And Janhvi is promoting his daughter film on Instagram everyday . If he has issue with boney Kapoor, he should solve it to him and not involve the kids."
Despite all the fuss around Anil Kapoor and Janhvi Kapoor, there’s no denying the fact that they share a friendly bond with each other. Time and again, we have seen Anil praising Janhvi for the way she’s rising in Bollywood. However, there’s a famous incident which speaks volumes about Anil’s lovely bond with his niece, Janhvi. Once, in an interview with Film Companion, Anil was spotted appreciating Janhvi for her performance in Mili.
However, what left everyone in splits was the fact that Anil Kapoor mistakingly renames Janhvi Kapoor’s film, Mili as Frozen. It was probably the best segment of the entire interview, and when everyone started laughing, Anil corrected himself by saying, ‘Hindi Frozen’, which was even more funnier. After the video of the interview was posted on YouTube, Janhvi posted a clip of the same on her IG story and shared how her uncle, Anil Kapoor forgot the name of her film. She even took a funny dig at him, and it clearly showed how friendly their bond is. Below the clip, Janhvi hilariously penned:
"As a family we’re all very involved and invested in each others work, clearly."
