He’s just made a comeback of sorts, after a seven or eight year’s hiatus, in Sajid Khan’s Housefull as a Sindhi businessman. Randhir Kapoor is elated at the very mention of the film. “It was a fantastic production to be a part of. They’re a fun-loving bunch. Though mine wasn’t a huge part, I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the revelry,” gushes Kapoor.
The actor has recently started shooting for Rahul Dholakia’s Society with Dimple Kapadia and has nearly wrapped up work for Vipul Shah’s Action Replay with Akshay Kumar and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. He plays a jaat in the former and a madcap scientist who creates a time machine in the latter. “I was being lethargic about taking on films for the past couple of years. But when these three films came my way, I felt the urge to start working again,” he states. Buzz is that Randhir Kapoor plans to start work on RK Productions’ next film in association with brothers Rishi and Rajeev Kapoor soon. He admits that plans to revive the banner are on, and the brothers would love to see one of the two leading Kapoor children — Kareena and Ranbir — in the film.
“Both Kareena and Ranbir’s date diaries are full. But I’m sure they’ll make room for their own banner somewhere. Personally, I’m proud of Kareena. She’s made a mark on her own and I’d love to see her in the movie. Ditto for Ranbir. He’s a real Kapoor, and he’s made us proud,” says Kapoor.
