Rishi Kapoor passed away on April 30, last year. Yesterday, on his death anniversary, many fans and followers of the late actor including his industry friends and family members paid tribute to him on social media. As many know, Rakesh Roshan shared a great bond with the late actor. And now, in a recent interview with ETimes, Rakesh Roshan opened up about his close friendship with Rishi Kapoor and also expressed his wish to see their sons Hrithik Roshan and Ranbir Kapoor in a film together.
Talking about his bond with the late actor, Rakesh Roshan said that they both got along really well because they both had similar nature of being frank on the face. "I used to really look forward to meeting him because he was a very open-hearted person. Jeetendra, Rishi and I used to catch up either at each other's house or some restaurant." He added that they both miss Rishi Kapoor a lot.
Further sharing more about their friendship, he recalled, "Rishi and Jeetendra were doing very well then as actors and I was not - but I never told them that they should try and get me a rose in their film. Neither did they compel me to cast them when I started producing and directing films." Adding to that, he said that they would discuss about movie world but only in terms of movies - 'yeh film kaisi lagi?' woh film kaisi lagi?' Today, I can see Rishi everywhere with me but we can't talk to each other.'
When asked if he and his wife Pinkie go to meet his family after he passed away, he said, 'I did go'. 'I kept telling Ranbir my stories with Rishi when we were young. I can never forget the outstation family holidays we took - both Hrithik and Ranbir were with us; they were kids then.' He then added that he wish to see Hrithik and Ranbir together in one film.
