Rishi Kapoor is not temperamental: Abhishek
Abhishek Bachchan (inset) says that veteran actor Rishi Kapoor (left), his costar in a recently released film, is not temperamental, and instead, is a fun-loving person. “Temperament ... no not at all. I have known him all my life and I have done two films with him. He is never like that. He is the opposite of that ... he is very entertaining, he is great pleasure to be around. He is full of life,” Abhishek says.
“I have never heard anyone complain about his temperament. It is an asset to have him on the sets,” he adds.
Rishi and Abhishek feature as father-son in the film. On his equation with his real-life father, megastar Amitabh Bachchan, the 39-year-old says, “My equation hasn’t changed. We are as friendly as before. We don’t have that traditional baap-beta kind of relationship, we are buddies and have always been like that.”
In the film, Abhishek romances Asin, who was earlier seen as his sister in Rohit Shetty’s 2012 film, Bol Bachchan. “It was great fun working with Asin. She is a friend and I enjoy working with her. She is a fine actor too. Last time, she played my sister (in a film), and now she is paired opposite me. We had actors such as Supriyaji (Supriya Pathak), Zeeshan (Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub) and Chintu uncle (Rishi Kapoor) in film, we had a wonderful cast,” Abhishek says, adding that his latest film is a family drama film with a social message.
