Recently, he and his wife Neetu Kapoor, together gave an interview to Times Now, wherein Rishi talked about many things. Among them, he expressed his disappointment that two of his closest friends, and talented individuals from the industry, Jeetendra and Rakesh Roshan have never got their due credit in spite of how much they have contributed. Read on.
Rishi said, "Jeetendra my dear friend, Rakesh Roshan my dear friend, they have never been acknowledged. Bechare 50 saal se upar woh log kaam kar rahe hain aur kiya hai. Aaj nahi kar rahe toh kya hua but kiya hai and jo unka samaya hai (Poor guys, they worked for 50 years. So what if they aren't doing it now. What ever they have done...), they have worked so much for this country. What about them?"
"And I am not bothered about myself. Jeetendra ne kitna...how much entertainment he has given this country," he added.
