Does Ranbir Kapoor fit into dad Rishi Kapoor’s shoes?

Ranbir is a doting son, so much so that the actor wants literally to follow in Daddy dearest’s footsteps…

We saw Ranbir Kapoor emulating the Kapoor khandaan biggies in his debut film Saawariya and he did a good job. Now it looks like the actor has been so thrilled with the praise he received that he wants to do it again…and again. The young actor’s look in his debut item song in Chillar Party was inspired by Papa Rishi Kapoor’s tapori look in Amar Akbar Anthony. Ranboo mimicked his father’s dancing style on the IIFA stage in 2012, when did an act, even switching jackets for it. RK Jr danced to Bachna ae haseeno, a song from Hum Kisise Kam Naheen that originally featured his father. Now it seems that Ranbir wants to do a Rishi again, this time for Anurag Kahyap’s Besharam that, in fact, also stars both his parents, Rishi and Neetu Kapoor as bumbling cops. The Barfi! star will sport a look that will be very close to RK’s in that veteran actor’s hit number from the 1980 movie Karz.

Ranbir is not the first one to walk this re-do-of-Rishi path. Shahrukh Khan did a similar act in Om Shanti Om – in fact, the 2007 film had a slightly rejigged portion of a song from the original Karz (1980) as the title track. Now we wonder, what with Ranbir doing a similar act, will he be pitted against dad Rishi or will he have to match up to SRK’s OSO act?
