Rishi Kapoor admires son Ranbir's work in biopic movie 'Sanju'
Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor said he is proud of the hard work that his son Ranbir Kapoor has put in for his role in the Rajkumar Hirani-directed upcoming biopic movie "Sanju". Ranbir took six weeks off to make up his body and grew hair, Rishi said "One thing that I have passed on to him is my passion for work and films," he added.
Ranbir's last outing "Jagga Jassos" had failed to garner much attention from the audiences but Rishi believes an actor should not succumb to failures. "Some films will work, some won't. No actor has 100% track record. But the fire within you as an actor should always keep burning. That should be the mantra for any good actor," he said.
Rishi said Ranbir is a risk taker and the fact that he does one film at a time makes things even tougher for him. "He doesn't have a film to fall back on or to prove his mettle. That is a huge risk an actor can take. What I admire about Ranbir is his choice of films," he said.
Rishi will be seen in a cameo in Nandita Das's "Manto" but the actor said he doesn't like doing special appearances. "I have 15-second-long role. Nandita was hell bent on me to do it. So, it is a small gesture that I did to them," Rishi said. However, Rishi said doing a cameo in Manto was a mistake and he won't repeat it again.
