Ranbir Kapoor has impressed the entire nation with his performance in Sanjay Dutt‘s biopic titled, Sanju. The actor has been busy receiving praises from audiences and critics alike but the one person who is apparently the most impressed with his performance is none other than his father, Rishi Kapoor.
It’s rare that you see Rishi singing praises about junior Kapoor but this time even he couldn’t help himself. In an interview with DNA:
I was pleasantly surprised by Ranbir’s performance as Sanjay Dutt. It was subtle, sincere and so accurate. I salute Rajkumar Hirani, who is one of my favourite filmmakers. When Munnabhai MBBS released, I was one of the first to go to his home in Bandra East to compliment him. From that time on, I’ve always been a huge fan of the man. Besides Ranbir, I was impressed with Paresh Rawal and Vicky Kaushal. I was actually looking to speak to Vicky, but I am told he is in Serbia.Ranbir has done many films in the past that have not worked out at the box-office and the actor has received quite some flack for it too. When asked about it, Rishi ji said:
Let me be honest, on a few occasions, even I used to think that perhaps my son had got it all wrong. But I have never voiced my views because Ranbir and I have a pact. I have never interfered in his career, I never will.Talking about the success that Sanju has brought for Ranbir, the proud father added:
Even 20 days before Sanju released, there were a few naysayers who did raise doubts on whether it would work and if Ranbir would be able to pull off his act as Sanjay, who is a larger-than-life-superstar. However, now that the film is here and things have worked out, I’m happy. The box office is the ultimate validation. Ranbir has truly outdone himself in essaying the controversial character of Sanjay on the big screen and the movie has turned out to be a major success at
