Rishi Kapoor is no more between us, the veteran actor left us for the heavenly abode yesterday, leaving everyone shattered to the core. From Bollywood, Television stars to the sports fraternity, all are mourning over his death. While some offered condolences to his family, some posted sweet messages for the veteran and some remember fond memories with the actor. Amongst them was filmmaker Nikkhil Advani who recalled fond memories while talking to Mumbai Mirror of the late Rishi Kapoor as well as Irrfan Khan while directing D-Day.
Advani narrated an incident from the set that he cherishes. Advani was quoted saying, “Today, a scene from my 2013 film, D-Day, flashes through my mind. Irrfan (Khan) looking at Chintuji, and laughing, amazed that they had finally managed to capture this much-wanted terrorist, despite their plans have failed. I remember Irrfan urging me to let the camera continue to roll and what emerged was this moment of delicious irony.”
He continued, “We were shooting in the desert and while Irrfan and a lot of team bunked out in tents, Chintuji would drive two hours back to the hotel. He was averse to early morning shoots but there was this sunrise shot we had to shoot with him and he was refusing to comply, saying, ‘I’m an actor, not a doodhwala." Advani remembered that "it took Irrfan bribing Rishi with ‘chicken jungli and alcohol’ for him to stay in the desert. It was a near-impossible feat in Kutch, but he delivered on his promise and I got my shot.”
Advani shared a tweet on the same which read, "No one treated me with the respect an actor gives a director more than you did, that too being who you were. You were my friend sir. I’m sitting, remembering and just chuckling, laughing. Waiting for your booming voice to say “boy... make me one more drink!” #RishiKapoor #RIP" In another tweet, he shared the screenshot of the scene and wrote, "At least one thing is for sure. There will be jashan in the heavens tonight. #RIPLegend #RishiKapoor #IrfanKhan" ALSO READ: Rishi Kapoor And Irrfan Khan's Deep In Conversation Picture From An Eid Party Is Breaking Our Hearts; Legends Gone Too Soon
