Famous actor of yesteryears Anil Kapoor.. who’s still going strong, is playing an autistic guy in his new movie ‘Yuvvraaj‘. If you have seen the trailers of the movie, you’ll agree with me that he’s doing a very fine job! Check one out after the text.

Says a source, “Anil plays elder brother to Salman and Zayed Khan. Subhash Ghai had been meaning to incorporate a physically-psychologically challenged character into his script for a long time. It was Anil who told Subhashji the story idea for Yuvvraaj.”

While he may seem crazy in the movie but you know the trend is like this. While Hrithik played one in Koi Mil Gaya (the movie went to become a huge blockbuster) and now I’ve heard even SRK is playing autistic in his upcoming movie Karan Johar’s My Name Is Khan.

Meanwhile, the buzz is that Anil’s latest Hollywood movie Slumdog Millionare is said to be a strong contender for the Oscars next year. The movie, which also stars Irrfan Khan, tells the story of a slum-dweller who wins a fortune on TV show. It’s based on a novel and was awarded the People’s Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival.
