While talking about Ranbir Kapoor's career, Rishi Kapoor attacked Anurag Kashyap and Anurag Basu for making commercially unsuccessful movies.
In an interview with the Huffington Post, he said, “Anurag Kashyap (Bombay Velvet), You gave 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 his... I thought he’d be responsible enough to know to keep the story at its point’.”
Talking about his son's input in Sanju, Rishi said in the interview, “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 labor that is gone as an actor in the film.”
Rishi Kapoor opened about his relationship with his son saying “I have always maintained a very formal relationship with him. I was never the backslapping type. Because that’s how my father was with me. It was out of love, affection, and respect. Ranbir didn’t see a lot of me in the house while growing up because I was a very busy actor and Neetu was running the house.”
Rishi explained how he takes it on Twitter. He said, “It’s not that I’m not abusive. They just abuse me, give me maa-behen ki gaali and I’ve given that back to them and blocked them.”
