Rishi Kapoor is easing into work after recovering from illness. While the health issues may have put a break on acting in films, they haven’t changed the way Kapoor approaches his work.
In an interview with The Asian Age, he said, “I am my own competition; I have to challenge myself. Jo aadmi chota hota hai woh aise thinking karta hai (A small man would think like this). I always feel that in whatever I may be doing, I am the best and I am doing good work. I may be a zero in reality, but I think like that.”, adding that he tries to not be too critical of himself, “I can’t watch my films, nor can I watch my son Ranbir’s (Kapoor) films. I can’t judge a film. Neetu (Kapoor) is very practical and she watches every film of both husband and son and gives us feedback. I have not seen ‘Tamasha’ (2015), ‘Anjaana Anjaani’ (2010), or ‘Rockstar’ (2011). I have no perspective on my films and Ranbir’s films. I can watch other people’s films, just not my own.”
On the work front, he is currently in talks for a film co-starring is wife Neetu Kapoor, “We are doing a film where we get separated on our 40th wedding anniversary, and that’s the beginning of the film. It’s a remake of an Indian film, and I am thinking of doing that. But I do not wish to give away the title of the film.”
