Rishi Kapoor Gives Out Insights From Ranbir’s Life And Their Relationship Every Fan Needs To Know, Says I Am Uncomfortable With Some Of The Things He Does
Rishi Kapoor is a well known face not only as an actor, but also as a strongly opinionated person on different matters. In his time, Rishi Kapoor was famous for his heart winning performances, and even now he is quite an active social media star for his views and opinions.
For all those who did not know the news, Rishi Kapoor recently launched his autobiography “Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored” which has a collection of many inside stories and revelations.
Here are the most interesting excerpts from the book which reveals the father-son relationship!
“Ranbir was also always clear about what he wanted to do, though he would only talk to his mother about it, never to me. He wasn’t fixated on acting or being a star. He was ready to be a cameraman or a director or a set designer or an editor, as long as it had to do with films”.
He further talks about his son’s debut in Bollywood and says, “Neetu and I will forever be indebted to Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the spectacular manner in which he launched Ranbir‘s career as an actor with Saawariya. However, I do have a bone to pick with him. But then the film was released and it bombed. When we saw it for the first time, I was aghast. If only Bhansali had told me, I would have dissuaded him.”
Rishi opens up some old chapters and decided to clear the air about Ranbir’s controversial whereabouts, “In January 2014, social media and print publications were agog with the news that he had gone to New York to ring in the New Year with Katrina Kaif. What nobody knew was that he had gone to New York to enroll himself back in school to learn how to stammer for a role in a forthcoming film”.
Rishi Kapoor adds some insights from Ranbir’s life for the delight of his fans, “There has always been a thin barrier that stands between my son and me. He is part of a new generation and I’m uncomfortable with some of the things he does. When he was younger and I noticed something that I didn’t like, I used to tell my daughter, ‘Tell your brother to take it easy, man, to have some respect for the elder in the house.’
Ranbir has strange likes and dislikes. When he’s home, he loves to start his day with scrambled eggs and caviar. I marvel at his indulgence. I grew up as Raj Kapoor’s son, but we never had scrambled eggs and caviar. And then, for someone who starts off his day with such a flourish, he starves the rest of the time.”
On his relationship with the him, Rishi, in a regretful tone says, “The distance that exists between us is similar to the one between my father and me. Ranbir and I see each other through this space, but can’t feel each other.
At least, I can’t.
There are times when I feel I’ve missed out on being a friend to my son. I was a strict father because I was brought up to believe that’s how a father should be.”
