Rishi Kapoor to play grandfather in Divya Kumar’s Sanam Re

en Bollywood News Rishi Kapoor to play grandfather in Divya Kumar’s Sanam Re

Divya Khosla Kumar, who made her directorial debut with Yaariyan, is all set to direct her second love story Sanam Re. For the first time, one will see Rishi Kapoor playing the role of a grandfather in her film.

Rishi Kapoor, who has been reluctant in the past to even play the role of a father, has now agreed to play a grandfather's role in Divya's film.

When quizzed Bhushan Kumar about Rishi Kapoor agreeing to play the role of a grandfather for the first time, he said, "Since I know Rishiji, Divya asked me if I would ask him to consider playing a dada's role in her film. My first reaction was that Rishiji, being a big star, would ask for big money and given that Divya's film is a small budgeted film, I was not comfortable asking him. Yet, I was at his house and reluctantly decided to ask him. Rishiji immediately said, 'Divya is like my daughter, being your wife and I would have done it for free had it been a father's role, but dada ka role main kissi keemat pe nahi karoonga.' I pushed my luck with him and said, 'Just for her satisfaction, can she please come and present her script to you?' A few days later, Rishiji came to our office, heard the script from Divya and then came into my room to say, 'I will play dada only.'"

When contacted, Divya said, "From the time I was working on the script, I had Rishiji in mind to play the role of a grandfather. I am happy that he loved the script and agreed to play grandfather's role for the first time in my film."

Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Sanam Re stars Pulkit Samrat, Yami Gautam and Urvashi Rautela.
