Here’s why Rishi Kapoor feels that he should have entered the film industry in early 90s

Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has been working in the film industry now for more than four decades. The actor has numerous successful films to his credit like ‘Bobby’, ‘Laila Majnu’, ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’, and many more. Undoubtedly, he was the heartthrob during the period of 70s and 80s. But, recently the actor said that he should have entered the Bollywood in the early 90s, instead of early 70s. Surprised!

The actor had made his way to attend the Jagran Film festival where he recalled his iconic film ‘Chandni’ (1989) which, according to him was a game changer for his career. During an media interaction, the actor said, “’Chandni’ was a game changer. It came at a time when everything was zero for us (Rishi Kapoor and Yash Chopra). The whole industry did a write-off that Yash Chopra’s film will be a flop.” [sic] (Also Read: Rishi Kapoor gets heavily trolled by Pakistanis for his anti-Pak tweets)

“When this movie was released, I was in America. My friend Jeetendra called me to inform that the picture became a big hit. I was surprised that such a small movie did so good. But it was a big hit and a game changer,” added the actor. [sic]

Further, the actor added, saying, “When the time for my pack up arrived, situations changed in the Bollywood film industry. Hence I say, I was right at the wrong time. I should have entered the industry in early 90s, not early 70s.” [sic] Rishi Kapoor said this as the period of late 80s was considered to be not much favourable for the success for a romantic film like ‘Chandni’.

Along with Kapoor, ‘Chandni’ also starred Sridevi and late Vinod Khanna. It was directed by late Yash Chopra.

Currently, Rishi Kapoor is busy shooting for director Umesh Shukla’s ‘102 Not Out’ where he will be seen sharing screen space with megastar Amitabh Bachchan after a gap of 26 years.
