It’s no secret that Ranbir and Rishi Kapoor have not generally had the warmest relationship. In 2015, Rishi had said this about their relationship, “It’s like there’s this glass wall, we can see each other, we can talk, but that’s it.” Now, Ranbir has penned the foreword in Rishi’s upcoming autobiography, Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored, co-authored by Meena Iyer, in which he discusses about his father finally. Here are some of the excerpts, as published by News 18.

On being closer to his mother

“I am closer to my mom. I feel that Dad modelled his relationship with me on the one he shared with his own father. And it is true that I have never crossed a certain line with him. But there is no sense of loss or vacuum here. I do wish sometimes that I could be friendlier with him or even spend some more time with him.”

On not being very close to his father

“Sometimes I wish I could just pick up the phone and ask him, ‘Dad, how are you doing?’ But we don’t have that. We don’t have a phone relationship. I love my father dearly and have immense respect for him. I’m inspired by him and never want to disappoint him. I know he has only my best interests at heart. He also takes care of the financial side of my work. So we are more connected now.”

On the relationship he wants to have with his own children

“When I get married and have children, I would want to change that dynamic with them. I don’t want my relationship with my children to be as formal as the one I have with my dad. I want to be friendlier, be more connected, spend more time with them than he did with me.”

On Rishi Kapoor’s Twitter personality

“I do not have a take on his Twitter personality. All I can say is, so long as he is being straightforward and having a great time, it’s his prerogative. Social media is something very personal. Obviously, he gets himself into a spot sometimes with his frank speak, but I know he has no plan and no hidden motive. My father is a straight arrow.”
