Ranbir Kapoor is a gifted actor but in the last few years, his films have not performed well at the box office even though he has worked with some of biggest directors in Bollywood. Though his performances have never been criticized, the films he chose had a weak storyline. Hence, they all bombed.
Rishi Kapoor has always been very concerned about his son’s career. After the failure of ‘Jagga Jasoos’, he had attacked Anurag Basu for being an irresponsible director. Now, again, he lashed out at him during Neha Dhupia’s show ‘No Filter’. He also slammed Anurag Kashyap for making a mindless film like ‘Bombay Velvet’.
This is how both the Anurags got the beating. Rishi Kapoor said,
Anurag? There is Anurag Kashyap, who made Bombay Velvet, but he made a better film in Gangs Of Wasseypur, I couldn’t understand head or tale of Bombay Velvet. And then there was Basu who made Barfi an outstanding film. I am so happy he took my son for it. My son got great recognition for the film and then he made this Gajja Jasoos..what Jagga Jasoos whatever.. which he made a total mess of. It was as messy as my pronunciation was.
He blamed for them mishandling the budget,
He probably got indulged too much. I guess both the Anurags got indulged in their films. You know when they are good enough to work on certain budget and suddenly they are given huge budgets in hand so bandar ke haath mein khilona nahin aa jaata hai, he goes absolutely berserk. So I think that’s what actually happened with both these guys. They were given budgets they could not handle and I guess it happens. It happens with every director, every actor you can’t have a hundred percent record anyway…So it happens.
You just cannot get away from him.
