If there is one actor in Bollywood who speaks his mind as frankly as Rishi Kapoor it is Naseeruddin Shah.
The actor-extraordinaire is not likely to gush over an actor just because he is no more.
Talking to an Indian newspaper, Naseeruddin Shah said: “Rishi Kapoor's youthful films, I have to say, didn't grab me and I don't think I saw any apart from Bobby, and Dimple had a lot to do with people liking Bobby! So I can't really comment on the early part of his career.”
“Apart from being very truthful emotionally he was always vibrant and energetic in films like Amar Akbar Anthony and Karz,” the actor said.
He further adds, “It was great to see him maturing with age and beginning to take risks and getting the kind of parts where he could extend himself. I particularly liked him in Kapoor & Sons.”
Speaking about Irrfan Khan, Naseer said: “Irrfan I consider an unusual talent, a unique actor and a greatly caring human being. Apart from them both dying young the really tragic thing is both had a great deal to look forward to in their lives and their work but as the poet Robert Burns said, the best laid plans of mice and men often go askew.”
