Rishi Kapoor: Ranbir Doesn’t Want To Be A Father Like Me

Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who is known for his outspoken nature, says he has always tried to maintain a gap between him and his son, actor Ranbir Kapoor when it comes to talking about personal life. He says Ranbir has never liked it and doesn’t want to be like him as a father.

Rishi on Tuesday launched his autobiography, titled “Khullam Khulla – Rishi Kapoor Uncensored” in Mumbai. He was joined by his wife Neetu Singh and daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni.

In his autobiography, Rishi has revealed some of the unknown aspects of his life, right from his late father Raj Kapoor’s affairs with co-stars to his belief on father-son relationship and his passion for acting.

Ranbir doesn’t want to be a father like me: Rishi Kapoor

“For me Raj Kapoor was not only a father. He was my guru, whatever I am today is because of him. When we were kids we knew that we were children of someone very important because wherever we went people looked at us as Raj Kapoor’s sons,” Rishi said at the launch.

“I never argued with my father and it so happened that unfortunately the same kind of relationship passed on with me and Ranbir. I really want that there should be love and respect between us. But I am not the type of guy, who will ask him (Ranbir) to share secrets of his girlfriends and all that. I am sorry. It’s my failure. I want there to be a wall between me and him where I can see him, but can’t feel him,” he added.

Rishi revealed that during Ranbir’s childhood, he was busy working, due to which Ranbir got closer to Neetu.

“Probably he felt that he needs his father, but I’m sorry I just can’t,” he said.

“Ranbir feels that when he is going to have kids, he is not going to be like me. It’s a generation gap. I cannot be a friend to a son. You must accept me the way I am,” Rishi said.

SRK Doesn’t Carry His Stardom On Set, Says Raees Co-Star Nawazuddin Siddiqui

National Award winning actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who has worked with Shah Rukh Khan in the forthcoming film Raees, says the superstar comes to the set devoid of any airs. That, he says, helped him to act well in some crucial scenes of the film.

Nawazuddin has worked with all three Khans of Bollywood — Aamir, Salman and SRK.

Talking about his experience of working with them, Nawazuddin told IANS: “I have worked with all the Khans, whether with Aamir ji in Talaash, Salman bhai in Kick, and Shah Rukh sahab in Raees. All of them have different styles and I had a great time working with them.”

“When it comes to Shah Rukh Khan, I enjoyed working with him a lot because he works like an actor on set. In addition, that reflected on our performance as we have some crucial scenes in the film. He does not carry his stardom on set. He is very humble.”

SRK doesn’t carry his stardom on set, says Nawazuddin Siddiqui

In “Raees“, Nawazuddin plays a police inspector named Jaideep Ambalal Majmudar, who is on a mission to arrest Raees — a bootlegger played by Shah Rukh.

An ‘outsider’ in the film industry, Nawazuddin started his film career in 1999 with “Sarfarosh“, and he went through a long struggle period before getting visibility with films.

Asked what kept him motivated during those days of struggle, the acclaimed actor said: “See, my aim was not to get a huge role in every film. I just wanted to act in films.”

“I did not get depressed thinking why am I not getting the role of a hero, but just one scene. I did not have any high expectations, but the wish to continue my journey as an actor. I am thankful to Bollywood that finally they are giving me some good roles. Having said that, I must say that there are so many talented actors here and they also deserve equal opportunity.”

Directed by Rahul Dholakia, “Raees” is releasing on January 25.
