After Ranbir Kapoor confess that his family visited Pakistan and in future his father is planing to visit Pakistan again. Father Rishi Kapoor to totally agreed with the statement passed by his son.
Today, a fan asked Rishi “if he has ever been to Pakistan” on twitter.
Veteran actor replied, saying: “Yes back in 1990. We shot for Henna in Islamabad. Visited Lahore, Karachi and my family hometown Peshawar.”
The ’90s Pakistani actress Zeba Bakhtiyar signed a bollywood film based on a Kashmiri girl, Henna (played by Zeba) and Chander (played by Rishi). The two fall in love after Rishi mistakenly strays to the Pakistani-occupied side of the disputed territory.
The film was an Indo-Pak mutual project and the story and dialogues were written by legendary Pakistani writer Haseena Moin. This was a positive act from both counteries.
When asked about Ranbir’s best movie, Rishi replied: “Generally, I don’t like him as I am too critical and harsh but he was decent in Barfi! And Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year.”
Asked whether he has any memories or stories to share about Madhubala and Meena Kumari, Rishi said: “When I was very young, they often visited our house for Diwali etc… How unfortunate I was not realising their worth.”
Rishi Kapoor will next be seen in Kapoor & Sons.
