‘That film was absolute rubbish’

Rishi Kapoor doesn’t care much for backlash and criticism, and freely speaks his mind. While talking about son Ranbir Kapoor’s career, he again lashed out at Anurag Kashyap and Anurag Basu for making commercially unsuccessful films.

In an interview to Huffington Post, Kapoor said, “Anurag Kashyap (Bombay Velvet). You give him so much money, he literally didn’t know what to do with it. Jagga Jasoos (directed by Anurag Basu) was such a bad film, such a bad story. It was absolutely rubbish. I questioned Ranbir and he said, ‘Papa, the man who gave me Barfi, how could I question him… I thought he’d be responsible enough to know to keep the story at its point’.”

Ranbir has redeemed himself in Bollywood with Sanju, which crossed Rs 300 crore.

About this, Kapoor said, “I’ve seen that boy coming to the house and not eating, then working out and putting on weight for the bulked up Sanju and then losing it all for the lanky one. And that boy has worked really hard for the film. People are not really understanding the amount of labour that is gone as an actor in the film.”

Kapoor will next be seen in Mulk, which is a film based on communal prejudices. It will hit the screens on August 3, 2018.
