Anil Kapoor to collaborate with Jeremy Renner for Disney's 'Rennervations'
Actor Anil Kapoor is on a roll! After earning acclaim for his role as the family patriarch in Raj Mehta's JugJugg Jeeyo, he is currently basking in the success of the limited series The Night Manager on Disney+ Hotstar. Now, Kapoor is in no mood to slow down and has confirmed his next project, Rennervations, which will feature Marvel regular Jeremy Renner.
Why does this story matter?
- International projects aren't new for Kapoor since he has previously worked in Slumdog Millionaire and Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol. Renner, too, was a part of the latter, but the duo didn't have scenes together.
- That disappointment will now finally wane with Rennervations.
- Moreover, Renner enjoys tremendous fan-following in India due to his Marvel movies, so the series already has immense buzz surrounding it.
Kapoor confirmed project on Twitter
Kapoor confirmed his next project was Rennervations while conversing with Mr. India director Shekhar Kapur. When Shekhar asked Kapoor about his upcoming work and expressed hope for an international project, he replied, "OTT is a whole new beast and I love it. As for what's next international I am looking forward to Jeremy Renner's Rennervations for Disney...Hopefully I'll continue living up to your words!"
