VETERAN ACTOR RISHI KAPOOR GIVES A WAKE UP CALL TO ACTORS IN BOLLYWOOD

Rishi Kapoor is undoubtedly one of the veteran actors to which many other actors look up to. After making an immense contribution to the Hindi cinema, Rishi Kapoor has left a legacy for many to follow. However, in an interview, the actor opened up on his concerns about the film industry. As reported by a leading daily, Rishi Kapoor's opinion was more of a warning. He was quoted saying; “You see, actors will have to change their approach. Eventually, only actors will survive, stars won’t. Stars will fade out. The system of being just good looking and bagging a good film, that kind of cinema, female or male, both will soon finish. You have to be a good actor. I shouldn’t be saying this but there are a lot of so-called actors also in this cinema who bloody don’t know what acting is all about.” Being in the industry for over four decades, the veteran actor has witnessed the evolvement of the industry.  And as such, seems to be very intentional about his speaking out his thoughts. It is definitely a wake-up call to all those in the industry. There is a need to make great acting skills a priority instead of good looks. The above remarks made by Rishi Kapoor was as a result of his thoughts concerning the content seen in recent Bolly flicks. He said; “I’ve always believed that films should be heavy on content, which is why I have acted in so many, during my time. Prem Rog (1982), Damini (1993), Tawaif (1985) were all content-based films, not made on a huge scale. They might not have been high on action, but were not nonsensical films. They (filmmakers) try to glorify the action more today, and even technically, they are more glossed over.” Even as he tries to encourage quality content in films, he applauded films such as Hindi Medium and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan. Believes that, the present generation is focused. Meanwhile, Rishi Kapoor will soon be seen on the silver screen with veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan in the film '102 Not Out'. The film is scheduled for release on the 4th of May, 2018.
