Rishi Kapoor is too strict a father and even when it comes to praising the work of his actor son Ranbir the veteran Bollywood star prefers being “critical” and “harsh” on him.
The 63-year-old “All Is Well” actor said till now he has found his son significantly decent in “Barfi” and “Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year”.
“Generally I don’t like him as I am too critical and harsh but he was decent in ‘Barfi’ and ‘Rocket Singh’,” Rishi said, when asked about the best movie of his son, during a Q&A session with fans on Twitter.
The actor, who earned a lot of praise for his portrayal of Ravi Verma in 1980 thriller “Karz” directed by Subhash Ghai, does not considers the film as one his best performances.
“Karz was no great work. Just stylized. Ghai’s best. Great music and Joie de vivre! Simi and Tina were to die for!,” he tweeted.
