When Catherine Zeta-Jones shook a leg with Anil Kapoor to Om Shanti Om
It was a night to remember for Hollywood star couple Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor. The actors recently attended the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in New Delhi and danced to the famous Om Shanti Om song.
New Delhi: It’s true that Bollywood fans are not restricted to just the Indian sub-continent and thanks to the magical power of the internet, the entire world is obsessed with our movies, our music and of course SRK!
Seems like even a superstar like Catherine Zeta Jones is not an exception when it comes to being a Bollywood fan. It was a night to remember for Hollywood star couple Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones and Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor. The actors recently attended the Hindustan Times Leadership Summit in New Delhi.
It wouldn't be wrong to say that the major highlight of the night was, when the Hollywood actress shared the danced floor with Anil Kapoor and the duo grooved to the song Deewangi Deewangi from Farah Khan's 2007 film Om Shanti Om.
The film's director Farah Khan shared a small video of Catherine and Anil Kapoor's performance at the event and she wrote: "Got my cast for OSO 2 (Om Shanti Om 2 ). Epic! Anil Kapoor and Catherine Zeta- Jones dance to my song. Jhakaas!."
Actor Catherine Zeta-Jones also confessed that she is obsessed with the 2007 Hindi musical Om Shanti Om, and knows it ‘verbatim’.
My friends Shah Rukh and Farah are going to be very happy,” Kapoor said, acknowledging the film’s lead actor, Shah Rukh Khan, and director Farah Khan. The film also served as the film debut of actor Deepika Padukone.

Meanwhile, Catherine Zeta-Jones and her husband Michael Douglas also shared pictures from the event on their respective Instagram profiles.
“My kids have been brought up singing Om Shanti Om,” Zeta-Jones said, while her husband, actor Michael Douglas, nodded next to her. “It’s true,” he said, and added, “On Christmas, everyone in our country sings Christmas carols, our house sings all the songs from Om Shanti Om.”
“I’m a big Bollywood fan,” Zeta-Jones said, adding that she would have loved to do a typical Hindi song-and-dance film in her career.
“I don’t think people understand my obsession with Om Shanti Om,” she continued, suggesting that it would have made for a wonderful Broadway musical. “But I can’t play it because I’m not Indian,” she said regretfully. “You look Indian; my niece looks like you” Kapoor said, which Zeta-Jones took as a compliment. “I’m very honoured,” she said, “Some of the most beautiful women are from India.”
