Bollywood's yesteryear actor Rishi Kapoor finally bags Karan
Johar's next. He will play a homosexual in KJO's Student Of The
As reports informed Mumbai Mirror, the role was initially made
for Shahrukh Khan. Rishi, who plays a dean in the film, shares a
very special relationship with Ronit Roy's character.
This would be Rishi Kapoor's most unconventional character ever.
When contacted, Rishi confirmed the news, "Yes, my character is
soft on Ronit in Student Of The Year. Why not? I play the
dean of the college. And yes, my character is gay. It's one
of the most important roles of my career at the moment. This is the
time of my career when I get to experiment. I don't want to play
the conventional father. Besides, I can't say no to Karan."
