OMG! Rishi Kapoor regrets doing a cameo in ‘Manto’ biopic starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Nandita Das’ highly anticipated film ‘Manto’ was recently selected in the Cannes’ -Un Certain Regards section. While the entire cast and crew of the film were rejoicing this achievement, one of its actor is not happy about being a part of this Saadat Hasan Manto’s biopic.

Recently while talking to PTI, Rishi Kapoor who has done a cameo in ‘Manto’ shared, “I have 15-second-long role in this film. Nandita was hellbent on me to do it. So, it is a small gesture that I did to them.”(Also read: Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s ‘Manto’ set for Cannes Film Festival journey)

However, the actor expressed his displeasure about the cameo by saying, “It is a very wrong thing that I did ‘Manto’. Audience doesn’t know why I did this 15 seconds role. They think I do not have work, so I did this role. My fans complain to me why I have to do short roles. It is a very wrong thing I did. I shouldn’t be doing this. Either give me an elaborate role where I am happy or else I won’t do. I don’t think I will ever repeat this mistake.”

So, all you filmmakers out there kindly take notice of this and never approach Rishi Kapoor for cameo appearances.
