Rishi Kapoor Finds Himself Too Expensive To Play The Role Of A Hero’s Father

Rishi Kapoor, the veteran superstar is ruling several hearts till date. Rishi Ji never bid adieu to the movies and played some memorable roles in the past few years and spread his charm. Apart from his film career, Rishi has always been in news for his opinionated nature. The actor has often landed in several controversies for his bindaas attitude and being judgemental about various things.

On the work front, the veteran star is all set to reunite with megastar Amitabh Bachchan after 27 years in 102 Not Out and fans are pretty excited about it. The actor will be playing a 75-year-old in the movie. On being asked whether he as any issues portraying roles more than his actual age onscreen, he said, "I am very happy to tell you that I am 65 running 66 and I have no qualms about it. I don’t think I have had a better period in my life ever and I am enjoying every bit of it. If you say that age is just a number, then you should see Amitabh Bachchan who is telling the same thing to his son in the film."

He further added, "I have no interest in portraying roles of hero/heroine’s father as I am too expensive for such roles. I only want to do characters irrespective of the length of the role. I don’t want anyone to pat my shoulders but you guys never realise the fact that I make all my characters look different and there is no Rishi Kapoor in it. In those days, even if there were hatke films being made by Gulzar or Hrishikesh Mukherji, they used to opt for other actors and never gave me a chance. Its only because of Mr Bachchan that actors of my age are getting work as by 45, you are supposed to retire."

Well, we are super excited to see Rishi Ji and Big B on screen after ages.

The film is directed by Umesh Shukla and is slated for 4th May release.
