Things that Rishi Kapoor said without hesitation
Rishi Kapoor was perhaps the only artist in the Hindi film industry’s well-known Kapoor family, who made a distinct identity.
After Showman Raj Kapoor, if Kapoor’s family name was duped by someone else, he was Rishi Kapoor.
Apart from the specialty of Rishi Kapoor’s acting, his cool character was very pleasing to the people.
He never denied that he used to drink a lot of alcohol, never denied that there was a generation gap with his son Ranbir Kapoor.
Being honest, in his opinion, he also had to be trolled on social media. Many of his late-night tweets were quite humorous, so many times, which used to put him in trouble.
In the year 2017, his book was published, which was named Khullam Khulla. His book was also discussed well because Rishi Kapoor wrote many things openly in it.
Let’s have a look at some such things of Rishi Kapoor’s Khullam Khulla, which people were aware of, but no one said it openly in Kapoor family.
The extramarital affair of Raj Kapoor
Rishi Kapoor Is No More: Rishi Kapoor openly admitted in his book that even after getting married, his father Raj Kapoor had relationships with many women.
Rishi Kapoor wrote about how he and his mother first shifted to a hotel and then to an apartment in Chitrakoot.
According to Rishi Kapoor, his mother, Krishna Kapoor, did not give up, and when Raj Kapoor left from these relationships, she returned with him.
Rishi Kapoor was very young in those days. But he wrote how his father Raj Kapoor used to try to convince his mother.
Pre-love with Neetu Singh
The wedding of Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh was one of the memorable weddings of Bollywood.
But in his book, Rishi Kapoor admitted that he was mad at the love of a Parsi girl.
He wrote in the book that the name of that Parsi girl was Yasmin Mehta. This incident is before his first film Bobby.
When Bobby came, many gossip film magazines had cracked down on the relationship between Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia.
Stardust magazine at that time also did a story on it. However, Dimple Kapadia and Rajesh Khanna were married at that time.
Rishi Kapoor admitted that this affected his relationship. This gossip put an end to the relationship between Rishi Kapoor and Yasmin.
According to Rishi Kapoor, he tried a lot to convince Yasmin. But could not succeed.
When Rajesh Khanna became angry
Rishi Kapoor shared another story related to Yasmin Mehta and Dimple Kapadia in his book.
He says that while he and Yasmin were dating, Yasmin gifted him a ring.
During the shooting of Bobby, Dimple wore that ring in his hand and then kept it.
When Rajesh Khanna proposed Dimple Kapadia, he saw that ring in Dimple’s finger and threw it into the sea near his home in Juhu.
In this sequence, Rishi Kapoor also made it clear that he had never fallen in love with Dimple and was never attracted to her.
Amitabh did not give credit.
Kapoor’s family had a relationship with Amitabh Bachchan. There was another relationship. But Rishi Kapoor had openly expressed his opinion about Amitabh.
In his book, he wrote how working in multi-starrer action films was difficult for the second lead.
In those days, action films were multistarrer, and many actors worked in it.
It used to be that the lead star would take the credit if the films were successful.
Rishi Kapoor wrote that this problem was not just with him. Shashi Kapoor, Vinod Khanna, and Shatrughan Sinha were also two to four with this problem.
Rishi Kapoor wrote – Although we were small stars, the actors were no less.
But Amitabh Bachchan never accepted this. Neither in any interview nor in any book.
Amitabh Bachchan did not give enough credit to the actors working with him.
When Rishi Kapoor was angry at Neetu
When Rishi Kapoor saw the phase of stardom, he also saw failure. When Bobby became a hit, Rishi Kapoor went on to star, and then he also had many films.
People had kept many expectations from her films, but she was beaten at the box office. By that time, he and Neetu Singh were married.
According to Rishi Kapoor, those times were frustrating and unfortunate for him. In the same recklessness, he started blaming Neetu Singh for his failure.
Neetu Singh was pregnant during that time. But she had to face the frustration of Rishi Kapoor in that situation.
He admitted that he came out of that era due to the support of family and friends.
But Rishi Kapoor had a feeling of how Neetu Singh would have faced that time.
Rishi Kapoor, while writing about his and Amitabh Bachchan’s relationship, also told that Amitabh was irritated by him because I got the award for Best Actor for Bobby.
According to Rishi Kapoor, Amitabh Bachchan had hoped that he would get the Best Actor Award for Zanzir.
But Rishi Kapoor got this award for Bobby. Rishi Kapoor wrote – I am ashamed to say that I had purchased that award.
A PR told him – Sir, give 30 thousand, then I will get this award to you. Rishi Kapoor admitted in his book that he had given money without thinking.
Taunted Javed Akhtar
Rishi Kapoor was never impressed with the Salim-Javed pair. He has written in his book that after he and his friend Iman Dharam were whipped, Javed went to his apartment to tease Akhtar.
Javed Akhtar also told him that his next project would be more of a hit than Bobby.
However, he later worked in several films with the Salim-Javed duo. But none of them were memorable films.
Rishi Kapoor has written in his book that he will never be able to forgive Javed Akhtar for the TV interview in which he said that Raj Kapoor was responsible for the untimely death of lyricist Shailendra.
Relationship with Ranbir Kapoor
Rishi Kapoor admitted in his book that Ranbir was rarely open with him. Ranbir used to talk more to his mother.
According to Rishi Kapoor, he never interfered in Ranbir’s career.
Although he must have objected to his early films, Rishi Kapoor believed that Ranbir’s work flourished with the movie Barfi.
Rishi Kapoor wrote about his bonding with Ranbir – I do not know what will happen next.
I do not know what my children will do. I do not see how my and Dabboo’s children will treat us in the future.
How will they keep the RK banner alive, how to take his legacy forward.
