People are always eager to know and want to dig deep when it comes to Bollywood’s oldest clan, the Kapoor’s. And veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has said if a biopic is made on his father, showman Raj Kapoor, the family would make sure his life is not sensationalised.
According to the reports published by a news agency, while promoting his next release Patel Ki Punjabi Shaadi, Rishi said “he understands that the present generation is curious about Kapoor’s personal and professional life, but if a biopic will ever be made, the story will be dealt with utmost care.”
“We don’t want to do anything that would upset any family in the film industry. You can’t make a biopic and not say things that happened other than work,” the actor added.
“There were relationships which I have said it in my book, you can’t deny it at all, so why make it at all. I don’t want to hurt anybody’s emotions or stir up hornet’s nest, we don’t want to sensationalise. We want the younger generation to know the real Raj Kapoor through his biopic.”
He also revealed that his sister once approached Sunil Dutt (Nargis’ husband) seeking permission to make a biopic on Kapoor, but “Dutt sahab just said one thing, ‘let sleeping dogs lie, let’s not stir up or upset anybody’.”
“Since the past 50 years it (offer for the biopic) is on. Producer Bobby Bedi, who made Bandit Queen, offered to do it But we, as a family, have an objection till our mother is living.” “If someone wants to make the film against our wishes and if we try to negate it, it will go wrong,” he adds.
