He is a confirmed MOTORMOUTH of Bollywood. Do you have any doubts?
He was the original chocolate boy of his times. He charmed his way into the hearts of ladies by his portrayal of an eternal lover boy in the seventies and eighties but who could known that behind his childlike, innocent smile lurked an angry, sassy individual? He has recently reinvented himself on Twitter and is ruffling quite a few feathers by his unapologetic rants on the micro blogging site.
His interviews too do not have an 'off the record' condition and he merrily speaks without ducking the questions with a glass of scotch in his hand and a zingier attitude to complement it. In case you don't know how Ranbir Kapoor's dad Rishi's (Oops he hates it when masses address him like that) fiery statements have caused a furore Here is a rundown on the same. Give it a read and get to know Rishi behind the facade of his iconic filmy characters.
From the recent controversial tweets taking off on Congress, his stand on Meat Ban to the honest confession on his strained relationship with son Ranbir Kapoor....Rishi Kapoor has revealed it all. Read on.
#Change Gandhi family assets named by Congress.Bandra/Worli Sea Link to Lata Mangeshkar or JRD Tata link road. Baap ka maal samjh rakha tha ?
#If it is the problem of slaughtering our "Gau mata"then the government should allow importing beef which was banned until now.All happy then
#Had a fight with Neetu last night. She doesn't understand that I am very scientific specially in the night after 8
#Please save Aarey greenery as this is the only place where celebrities can take their lovers in their car as not to be seen.I Protest for it
Another said that I’m a lousy actor and Ranbir is far superior. Thank you sir, I agree with you completely. Then there have been tweets suggesting that Ranbir should disassociate himself from his girlfriend. Excuse me! Ranbir’s private life is his, just like my father never butted into my private life.
Contrary to popular opinion, I don’t scan the scripts offered to him. I’m his baap, not his secretary. If at all I’m his finance minister, Ranbir doesn’t have a head for money matters. So I do check out the financial aspects of his contracts. Full stop.
As far as I’m concerned, Katrina has been very well behaved. I worked with her in Namaste London. She’s pretty and hardworking. A newspaper reported that she’s started calling me, ‘Papa.’ Rubbish, she wouldn’t dare to take such liberties with me.
I had to buy the Filmfare Award for my performance in Bobby… why’re you looking at me like that? That’s not off-the-record.
I know I've screwed up my relationship with Ranbir even though my wife kept telling me about what I was doing. It's now too late to change it; both of us will not be able to adjust to the change. It's like there's this glass wall, we can see each other, we can talk, but that's it.
I never made friends with Ranbir and though I regret it, I am also not one of those guys who would want to be on back-slapping terms with my son.
