Not too many actors get the privilege of playing themselves in a film. Recently, Bobby Deol played himself in Nanhe Jaisalmer. Now it's Rishi Kapoor's turn.
"It's a film called HaddBehadd. It's a super social comedy and I've a great role. Yes, I play myself, Rishi Kapoor," Rishi told IANS.
HaddBehadd is the directorial debut of theatre personality Ranjit Kapoor who had scripted films like BanditQueen and MangalPandey.
"It's great to work with a young, enthusiastic team. This is a character-driven film. So there're lots of actors from the National School of Drama. Priyanshu Chatterjee and Kulraj Randhawa play lead roles. Really, at my age I couldn't have asked for a better role," said Rishi who is all keyed up about his son Ranbir's maiden release Saawariya.
Rishi is on tenterhooks about the impending release of his son's debut film and is visiting religious places to pray for his son's success.
"Dad gets so tense, I'd have been a nervous wreck just watching him. But he's taking time off to visit all the gurdwaras and temples in and around Himachal. In one of the temples, the priest came up to dad and said, 'I know your son is about to start his career. This is with Devi Ma's blessing.' And he gave dad a chunni as an auspicious token. It was a moving gesture, and one that I'll cherish for ever," said Ranbir.
