Apart from his movies in the Hindi film industry is also known for speaking his mind without any fear of getting judged. Recently, Rishi talked about his son Ranbir Kapoor and his choice of films in an interview.

: ફરી ટ્રોલ્સના ટાર્ગેટ પર ઋષિ…. ઋષિ કપૂર તેમના બિન્દાસ્ત સ્વભાવ માટે જાણીતા છે. પાકિસ્તાનમાં રિસન્ટલી જનરલ ઇલેક્શન જીત્યા બાદ ઇમરાન ખાને પોતાના દેશને સંબોધિત કર્યો હતો. જેની પ્રશંસા કરતાં ઋષિએ એક ટ્વીટ કર્યું હતું અને આશા વ્યક્ત કરી હતી કે, હવે પાકિસ્તાન અને ઇન્ડિયાની વચ્ચે સંબંધો સુધરશે. જોકે, આમ કરતી વખતે તેમણે પોતાની આગામી ફિલ્મ ‘મુલ્ક’નું પ્રમોશન પણ કરી દીધું હતું. #rishikapoor @rishikapoorofficial #bollywood #gujarati #navgujaratsamay #navgujaratsamayofficial #ahmedabad #gujarat #bollywoodgossip #instantbollywood #film #filmphotography #bollywoodactress

Rishi lashed out at Anurag Kashyap’s Bombay Velvet and Anurag Basu’s Jagga Jasoos for the storyline but he also praised Rajkumar Hirani directorial Sanju. Rishi in an interview said, “It (Sanju) was a pretty good film, unlike both Velvet or Jagga. They were bad films. They were indulgent. Even Sanjay Leela Bhansali made Saawariya. I mean his forte is something else and he made something else. Anurag Kashyap (Bombay Velvet). You give him so much money, he literally didn’t know what to do with it. Jagga Jasoos 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 his… I thought he’d be responsible enough to know to keep the story at its point”.

Talking about the movie Sanju, many people said that it is made to clear the image of Sanjay Dutt. But the story tells about Sanjay Dutt’s bad boy image. Meanwhile, in an exclusive interview with a leading daily, the filmmaker said that Sanju was not a propaganda film. He said, “There is no reason for us to make a propaganda film. You don’t spend three years of your life doing something and destroying your career in the process”.

On the same Rishi Kapoor had also said that it is a difficult thing for a filmmaker to cover all the aspects of a person’s life in a couple of hours.  Telling one of the main reasons is money as one of the primary reasons for compromising with the source material, Kapoor said: “we are not making it close to anybody’s reality”.

Rishi Kapoor’s Mulk is directed by Anubhav Sinha which also stars Prateik Babbar and Manoj Pahwa in pivotal roles. Mulk will release on 3rd August.
