Anil Kapoor meets Super Model Naomi Campbell

On his recent trip to South Africa, Anil Kapoor met ex-supermodel Naomi Campbell and her billionaire Russian boyfriend Vladislav Doronin and was surprised to learn that she was a fan of 24, a TV series, in which he features in the final season.

Anil, who is the Brand Ambassador of South Africa, was invited by the government to watch the FIFA World Cup final.

He was at the presidential suite at the Soccer City stadium in Johannesburg with a few friends like industrialist Lakshmi Mittal and President Jacob Zuma's son, when a messenger told him that Naomi Campbell wanted to meet him.

It is learnt that the ex-supermodel recognised Anil from Slumdog Millionaire as well as his Hollywood TV series 24.

Says a source, "Naomi kept addressing Anil as President. He wondered why until he realised that it was because he had played the role of Middle Eastern peace-keeping leader Omar Hassan, President of the fictional Islamic Republic of Kamistan, in 24."

The actor and Naomi exchanged numbers and email IDs and promised to keep in touch. When she heard Anil's daughter was shooting in London, she also took down Sonam's number and promised to get in touch with her.

Naomi introduced Anil to boyfriend Vladislav and they spoke about how much they were enjoying their stay in SA.
