Late Rishi Kapoor And Son Ranbir Kapoor Were Not Planning A Film Together - EXCLUSIVE
It is very convenient to attribute  intentions and words  to a dead  person, since he  isn’t around to contradict you. We now have reports that Rishi Kapoor and his son Ranbir Kapoor were  considering being part  of  the Hindi remake  of a Gujarati film, Chaal Jeevi Laiye.

This just can’t be true. Rishi had himself told this writer that after Abhinav Kashyap’s Besharam, both father and son had taken a conscious decision to stay away from one another on-screen.

Rishi who was very upset with the way Besharam (and also Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet) had shaped up said, “Ranbir will always have to go through this unfair comparison with me, just like Abhishek. That’s why I  don’t want to play his father on screen. I  agreed to do Besharam because we were not playing father and son.  But it was a mistake.”

Hope this puts to rest all speculative stories on any proposed project bringing the Kapoor father and son together before his untimely death.

Now that the grief at the loss of Rishi Kapoor is settling down, the question that a lot of industry folks are  asking  is, what is the family planning  in the way of honour for the iconic star-actor? Is his brother Randhir Kapoor or any other member  of the family planning anything major?

“Not  Dabboo or any of his daughters(Karisma and Kareena). But  Chintu’s wife Neetu, son Ranbir and daughter Riddhima will definitely do something major in Rishi’s honour,” says a close family friend.

 A  biopic, perhaps? “Not a biopic, that won’t work. Who will play Rishi Kapoor? Nor Ranbir Kapoor, not after playing Sanjay Dutt (in Raj Hirani’s  Sanju). No,  a documentary showcasing Chintu’s journey is more like it. Right now there is nothing concrete, though. The family is too close to the tragedy,” says the family friend.
