The veteran actor Rishi Kapoor is well-known for his outspoken nature and we all respect him for that! It takes a lot of guts to speak one's heart out without caring what others will think or say. Recently, while getting candid with DNA, the 'Daddu' of Kapoor And Sons talked about his fight with the director of the film (Kapoor And Sons), Shakun Batra.
When asked about his experience, while working with Shakun Batra, he said, "I didn't have fun working for Shakun Batra in Kapoor & Sons. You see I worked for 30-32 days on this film. Not a single day passed when Shakun and I didn't fight."

He later added, "It was not a creative fight. It was something else. We fought because I couldn't agree with his method of working on my role."
"Shakun wanted to cover every shot of mine from many different angles. But I am old-school spontaneous actor. I couldn't recreate the same expression several times over for every shot. I respect all schools of acting. But I am not a method actor. With every successive shot I lose my spontaneity. This new style of working where actors give the same shot repeatedly from different angles has gained acceptance because in the digital era no raw stock is wasted. Because they've the facility of editing a film on a digital platform they want more software. Thereby actors have turned into robots. That's not my way of working. I always have an edited pattern in my mind for my performances."
Mr Kapoor also revealed that he almost planned to leave the film in the middle. He said, "We were constantly arguing. I told him he had taken the wrong actor. I offered to leave the film at least twice."
