Late actor Rishi Kapoor’s last movie Sharmaji Namkeen was released today on Amazon Prime. The late actor had an immense passion for movies and food. During a recent intervie, Ranbir Kapoor said that even though he wanted to emulate his father, they did not share much similarities.
Ranbir Kapoor talks about being more like his father Rishi Kapoor – “He speaks his mind, he is not a hypocrite”
Ranbir told NDTV, “As much as I want to emulate him, be like him, he’s just such a passionate man about films, about his family, about food, about his whiskey, about politics, about India. He is so alive. It means something to him, he cares for these things.”
In another interview with Film Companion, Ranbir said, “I hope I have some traces (of him) because to me, I see him as a great person, not just as an artist, but also as a human being. I think his value system is very correct. He speaks his mind, he is not a hypocrite, when he loves something passionately, he loves something.”
He further added, “My understanding of passion has always been my father because to see that kind of interest, excitement, anxiety, nervousness, and also insecurity. I have never seen that level of insecurity even at that stage of his career.”
Ranbir also recalled his father’s time transitioning from a lead actor to character actor, “Being the tremendous actor he is, he had the opportunity to have a second innings, and what a second innings he had. The kind of characters he picked, the kind of performances he gave. It made him so excited to sign a good film, not the result, if it did well or not.”
Ranbir also shared the love for food Rishi had. Recalling an incident during Rishi Kapoor’s treatment in New York, Ranbir said, “When he was meeting with doctors in New York for his treatment, he made up some wrong story which was not even true that ‘I don’t get sleep at night’, which is not true. So he made the doctor believe that ‘I don’t want to take sleeping pills so can I at least have 2 drinks’ and because the doctor said 2 drinks, he used to tell my mother at home I can have 3 drinks, matlab agar 2 se kuch nahi hoga, 3 se kya hoga (If 2 drinks are okay, then 3 are also okay.)”
