Everyone in the film industry knows that Rishi Kapoor doesn’t work at nights. This clause, often made clear to the makers at the signing stage, is non-negotiable. So when the actor gladly continued shooting for a film post his stipulated deadline (around 7 pm), the director was left a bit shocked.


I can't do the stereotypical father's roles: Rishi Kapoor

"He believes in the character, and it made him work till late," says

Sanjay Chhel

, who is directing Kapoor in this currently-untitled film. He adds, "Rishiji is like a child. If he enjoys the work, then he stretches his hours. When he gets bored, he tends to leave by 7 pm. One day, he even worked as late as 11 pm."

This film is a quirky comedy. Although Chhel says nothing about the film, he does talk about Kapoor’s character, "He is a happy-go-lucky kind of person, and he has a typical way of speaking."

Speaking about the title, he adds that the makers have shortlisted a few options and will conduct a poll and then decide on the final one.
