Mumbai, April 27 (TNS): Bollywood star Rishi Kapoor who is currently busy promoting his upcoming film, 102 Not Out with Amitabh Bachchan spoke about his relationship with his son, Indian fashion magazine reported.

According to Filmfare, Rishi was spotted at an event where he was asked about his relationship with Ranbir Kapoor – a topic that has been brought up on multiple occasions.

The 65-year-old actor revealed, “There was a time when Ranbir and I didn’t get along because I was really busy. There was an invisible glass pane between us – like my relationship with my father, late Raj Kapoor. But I’m a loving father now.”

Rishi added that he now wants his son to get married so that he can be a grandfather and make up for lost time. The proud father also spoke of the many avatars Ranbir will be playing in Sanju.

The 35-year-old’s father explained, “Ranbir wanted a different career graph so he did films like Wake Up Sid and Rocket Singh. Some films failed but no actor has a 100% track record – as the saying goes, ‘Form is temporary, class is permanent’.”
