Rishi Kapoor is one of the most veteran actors in Bollywood. He has inspired many actors in the industry. This time he is boosting up none other than his own son, Ranbir Kapoor, who has recently faced failure, through Bombay Velvet.
"We did speak about it. I have only one piece of advice for him, ‘Don't let success go to your head or failure to your heart.' In his brief career so far, he has seen quite a lot of ups and downs. And he's taken it all in his stride." says Ranbir's father.
No doubt, the criticism of his lad's movie Bombay Velvet has dampened his sentiment. But he knows well that one has to face few failures on the way to achieve success.
He admits, "Ranbir is naturally disappointed by the outcome of Bombay Velvet. But it's okay. He will get over it. Setbacks are a part of every actor's career. I am glad it's happening to him now when he has recently started out."
The veteran actor continued to say, "I also had more than my share of debacles after Bobby. Films like Zehreela Insaan, Zinda Dil Rangeela Ratan and Raja were all flops. Even Khel Khel Mein was only a chota hit. Nothing worked big time until Laila Majnu. I was at my wit's end. Actor I S Johar even advised me to retire."
He further said, "No one doubts Ranbir's ability to deliver. I was lucky that way. Even when my films flopped, no one said I was bad in them. The same is true of Ranbir. He is going through a process of churning. He will find his bearings."
Well, it's a perfect piece of advice for all the struggling actors who are facing failure in their careers. And it's all a part of life!
