Ranbir Kapoor Calls His Father Rishi Kapoor ‘A Big Bully’: Says, ‘He Used To Test His Directors’
Ranbir Kapoor is back on the silver screen with two massive projects ‘Shamshera’ and ‘Brahmastra’ and he is currently busy promoting the former film which is directed by Karan Malhotra. In a recent interview, he opened up about his late father actor Rishi Kapoor and told that he was a big bully and used to test people.

Recently, in an interaction with Peeping Moon, Ranbir spoke about Karan Malhotra’s experience working with Rishi Kapoor in the 2012 film ‘Agneepath’ along with Hrithik Roshan, Sanjay Dutt, Priyanka Chopra, Zarina Wahab, and late actor Om Puri. Agneepath was Karan’s directorial debut. He was quoted saying, “My father was always a big bully and he used to test his directors. If he comes on too strong and the director doesn't hold his own and agrees to everything he says, he knows he has to take over the project. So he always did this testing thing but thankfully, Karan is such a confident person himself that he always stood his ground.”

Speaking about Zoya Akhtar’s experience of working with his late father, the Rockstar actor said, “Even Zoya used to tell me that he is such a bully but if you don't stand up to him, he will take over the project. So this was his way of testing people.”

Rishi Kapoor starred in ‘Luck By Chance’ in 2009 along with Farhan Akhtar, Konkana Sen Sharma, Juhi Chawla, Dimple Kapadia, and Hrithik Roshan. 

On the work front, the Barfi actor will be seen in Karan Malhotra’s Shamshera, in a double role for the first time, with Vaani Kapoor as the female lead and Sanjay Dutt playing the antagonist Shuddh Singh. The film is slated to release theatrically on July 22, 2022. 

Apart from that, he will also be seen in Ayan Mukerji’s ‘Brahmastra’ with Alia Bhatt, Amitabh Bachchan, Mouni Roy, and Nagarjuna. The film is scheduled to release on September 9, 2022, in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada languages.
