Rishi Kapoor Launches His Autobiography With An Interesting Foreword By Son Ranbir Kapoor!

Author : Author At BB

Bollywood is full of dark secrets and diplomatic answers. And in a world filled with ‘No Comments’, Rishi Kapoor is unapologetic about his opinions. The veteran actor launched his autobiography and the name is the perfect reflection of his personality – “Khullam Khulla – Rishi Kapoor Uncensored”

The book has been co-authored by Meena Iyer and was launched at an event in New Delhi yesterday. An overwhelmed Rishi Kapoor spoke to the media and described his experience of writing the book –

 “The most difficult part while writing this autobiography was to remain honest, and I and Meena had very verticals. So, we had to choose as we had to reflect on cinema, family, career etc. She assembled it all part by part and we took it forward. We took three and a half years to write this book.”

One of the interesting parts of the book is the foreword written by his son Ranbir Kapoor. He wrote about the relationship he has with his father and the one he hopes to have with his kids:

“I am closer to my mother. I feel that Dad modeled his relationship with me on the one he shared with his own father. And it is true that I have never crossed a certain line with him. But there is no sense of loss or vacuum here. I do wish sometimes that I could be friendlier with him or even spend more time with him.”

“I wish I could just pick up the phone and ask him, ‘Dad, how are you doing?’ But we do not have that. We do not have a phone relationship. When I get married and have children, I would want to change that dynamic with them. I don’t want my relationship with my children to be as formal as the one I have with my father. I want to be friendlier, be more connected, spend more time with them than he did with me.”

His thoughts on the validation he needs as an actor from his dad:

“I love my father dearly and have immense respect for him. I’m inspired by him and never want to let him down. I know he has only my best interests at heart. He also takes care of the financial side of my work. So we are more connected now. His confidence in me and my work makes me take pride in it. I persevere that much harder because of this. His belief and his encouragement are important to me.”

Interesting, right?
