Ranbir Kapoor’s last two releases, ‘Roy’ (2014) and ‘Bombay Velvet’ (2015) certainly left the audience and the industry thinking. Kapoor was on the receiving end of the jokes at the recent IIFA Awards. Actor Arjun Kapoor let out a few jokes, but Rishi Kapoor has taken it in stride and feels its okay to run down his son, for his last career choices.
Kapoor senior said, as according to Bollywood Hungama, “ I don’t know what exactly Arjun said. But whatever it was, it’s all right yaar. It is okay to run down anyone for a few laughs in the industry. Ranbir is going through that phase in his career when he is facing flak for his choice of films, and rightly so. He has made some mistakes. Ranbir will emerge a stronger, wiser, and a more learned actor after his suicidal career decisions.”
He also doesn’t have anything against Arjun, adding, “Chill, yaar. All of us actors have to go through lean phases. It’s part and parcel of the process of growing as an actor.”
The director of ‘Roy’, Vikramjit Singh, who is also Ranbir’s childhood friend, didn’t take Arjun’s comment about ‘Roy’ to heart either, saying, “There is nothing to be said. It’s all in jest and good humor. I accept. My film should have been called ‘Destroy’ rather than Roy. But I much preferred the Bombay Velvet ‘rosie-roti’ joke.”
Kapoor’s next two releases are��being awaited with bated breath,��mainly ‘Jagga Jassoos’ with Katrina Kaif, releasing at the end of the year, and Imtiaz Ali’s ‘Tamasha’, with Deepika Padukone.
