Rishi Kapoor just released in autobiography called ‘Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored’ and he thought it would be a brilliant idea to have the son, who he’s not so close to, to write his foreword for the book. Maybe his publisher wanted more youngsters to go out and buy this book because having Ranbir Kapoor write that foreword was the worst idea. Why? Because it sounds like he’s complaining about their relationship and he’s not even subtle about it.
We have to wonder whether somewhere inside of him, Ranbir blames his father for his personal life’s failures, such as his commitment-phobic problem and messing up his relationship with his girlfriends. Not to make fun of this situation, Ranbir should see someone professional to work out his issues. Rishi Kapoor could have had Amitabh Bachchan write his foreword instead, that would have been quite something. To think that they thought it would be a good idea to go forward with this:
Ranbir Kapoor‘s Foreword in his Dad’s Book
I am closer to my mother. I feel that Dad modeled his relationship with me on the one he shared with his own father. And it is true that I have never crossed a certain line with him. But there is no sense of loss or vacuum here. I do wish sometimes that I could be friendlier with him or even spend more time with him.
Sometimes I wish I could just pick up the phone and ask him, ‘Dad, how are you doing?’ But we do not have that. We do not have a phone relationship.
When I get married and have children, I would want to change that dynamic with them. I don’t want my relationship with my children to be as formal as the one I have with my father. I want to be friendlier, be more connected, spend more time with them than he did with me.
I love my father dearly and have immense respect for him. I’m inspired by him and never want to let him down. I know he has only my best interests at heart. He also takes care of the financial side of my work. So we are more connected now.
His confidence in me and my work makes me take pride in it. I persevere that much harder because of this. His belief and his encouragement are important to me.
I do not have a take on his Twitter personality. All I can say is, so long as he is being honest and having fun, it’s his prerogative. Social media is something very personal. Of course, he gets himself into a spot sometimes with his frank speak, but I know he has no agenda and no hidden motive. My father is a straight arrow.
