Talking about Anil's love for Hollywood films, he told Film Companion, “I am looking forward to Christopher Nolan’s (Oppenheimer) — I always look forward to all his films. I look forward to Tom Cruise’s films, the kind of action he’s done. These are the people whom I really look up to. I was very fortunate when I did (Ghost Protocol), and when I spoke to my then colleagues, they said ‘Nahi nahi yaar, woh baat nahi hai (he isn't that great).’ I said, ‘Pata chalega aapko (you will find out).’ Now everybody’s a fan after Top Gun: Maverick.”
In the same interview, Anil also shared that he encouraged his friends from the industry to go for international projects. “I told them ‘International kaam bhi karo (try international projects),’ they said, ‘Nahi hum India main theek hai (we are fine in India).’ Later I realised that everyone secretly went to Los Angeles, everybody went to Netflix and Amazon,” Anil added.
Anil was last seen in The Night Manager part two where he reprised his role as dangerous arms dealer Shailendra Rungta. It is a remake of the 2016 British television series of the same name, adapted from John Le Carre's novel. Besides Anil, the series also stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Sobhita Dhulipala, Tillotama Shome, Ravi Behl and Saswata Chatterjee.
