Ranbir Kapoor dons his father’s avatar
After rendering his father’s iconic song, ‘Bachna ae haseeno’ successfully, Ranbir Kapoor will step into Rishi Kapoor’s shoes yet again.
While Ranbir will share screen space with his parents Rishi and Neetu Kapoor for the first time in director Abhinav Singh Kashyap’s Besharam, he will also give viewers a glimpse of his father’s yesteryear avatar.
Ranbir will don Rishi’s look from the popular song, ‘Om shanti om’ from the film Karz (1980). “He will remind viewers of Rishi’s song ‘Om shanti om’ in one of the songs from his next. He will sport a metallic outfit that is similar to the one worn by Rishi in the number,” says an industry insider.
"When it was composed and choreographed, the makers thought that a metallic dress would go best with it and they remembered that Rishi had sported something similar in the Karz song," says the source.
When contacted, Abhinav confirms the news, saying, "The resemblance in both outfits is uncanny. However, we had not planned this. When we realised the commonality, we laughed about it." Ranbir will play a thief in Besharam, while his parents, Rishi and Neetu, will be seen as cops. The film is slated to release on October 2.
