Rishi Kapoor is known for speaking his heart. He doesn’t calculate when he speaks. He along with his wife Neetu Kapoor became part of live show ‘Rendevous with Simi Garewal’ in front of a live audience during Indian Film Festival in Melbourne. The couple revealed many things but Rishi Kapoor shared what he thinks about his relationship as a father with his son Ranbir Kapoor. In his own words:
There’s a wall between us. There’s a glass between us. We can see each other but not feel anything. I had a fear of my father. I was in awe of him. I had great respect for him. It took him a long time to say ‘Have a drink in front of me’. I used to call him ‘Sahab’. But I feel like a loser, I’ve missed out. But I haven’t done it deliberately; it is just a very natural phenomenon. Now that we don’t live under one roof, there’s more communication. He (Ranbir Kapoor) talks to his mother more than me. But I don’t think Ranbir will be a father like me.
This was truly emotional.
