"I must say if you don't work hard in your life, then you can't become an inspiration for others. In fact, our daughters, Ananya and Shraddha, have become popular faces in the film industry all because of their hard work and struggle. It is not because they are daughters of Chunky Panday and Shakti Kapoor," he said.
Recalling how the Ek Villain (2014) actress worked hard for Remo D'Souza's directorial film ABCD 2 (2015) Kapoor said, "Remo is sitting next to me, and he knows that it was not easy for anyone to do ABCD 2, but my daughter actually pulled it off. I remember she used to come back home with cuts and bruises on her foot, she used to have back pains after rehearsing for so many hours, so clearly, she has done a lot of hard work for her movies and has earned stardom and respect."
