If there’s one thing that Rishi Kapoor is known for other than his spectacular acting is his unabashed tweets and the way he speaks his mind. He is just as open with his compliments as he is with some of his other opinions as well. Recently, after seeing Ranbir Kapoor‘s spectacular performance in Sanju, the senior actor had taken to Twitter to express how proud he was of his son. This time he had things to say about Ranbir’s personal life and once again what’s on his mind is what’s on his lips.
It is high time he got married. I settled down when I was 27, Ranbir is 35. So he should think about marriage. He can marry anyone of his choice; we don’t have any objection to it. I want to spend time with my grandchildren before I am gone.
Spoken like every protective Indian father ever, don’t you think? That grandchildren card, tho!
But he also said that he understands the nature of the industry he’s part of.
Be it Ranbir or his contemporaries, actors have blinkers on and are focused on their work. The only women they meet are the actresses. They don’t socialise as much; that is the flipside of life in the movies.
Both Ranbir and Rishi have admitted that they share a relationship based on respect and discipline rather than a friendship. Chintu ji also admitted that this distance is why he’s not been so vocal about his feelings to Ranbir.
I haven’t been vocal about it, but my wife keeps bringing it up with him and he just brushes the question away. Whenever he is ready for it, we will be happy. Our happiness lies in his happiness, after all.
Ranbir is currently in a relationship with his Brahmastra co-star Alia Bhatt and had confirmed the news in an interview to GQ. While Ranbir’s mom, Neetu Kapoor has made her approval for Alia clear through all her comments on Alia’s post, here’s what Chintu ji had to say.
Jo hai woh hai, sabko pata hai. I don’t need to say anything more.
Well… just another day when Rishi Kapoor says it like it is!
