Speaking with NDTV, the Brahmastra actor shared how his uncle reacted after watching Rishi Kapoor’s last movie, titled Sharmaji Namkeen. The veteran actor told Ranbir to tell his dad (late Rishi Kapoor) that he is amazing and even asked to call Rishi Ji.

Ranbir shared, “My uncle Randhir Kapoor, who is going through an early stage of dementia, and he came to me after the film, said, ‘Tell dad that he is amazing, and where is he, let’s call him’. Art crosses boundaries of medical conditions… And a good piece of storytelling really embodies that.”

The veteran actor has often expressed how much he misses his Brothers– Rishi and Rajiv Kapoor, who passed away some years ago. Back in 2021, in an interview with the Times of India, the veteran actor had said, “The last year has been a very sad time in my life. Sad is really a modest word here; worst would be apt. In a matter of 10 months, I lost both my darling brothers- Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) and Chimpu (Rajiv Kapoor). Also, I lost my mother (Krishna Kapoor) and sister (Ritu Nanda) in the last two-and-a-half years.”

Randhir Kapoor had even mentioned how he shared an extremely close bond with his brothers. And he had even shared how they spoke daily, on-call.

Sharmaji Namkeen is scheduled to release on March 31, on Amazon Prime Video. The movie features Rishi Kapoor, Paresh Rawal and Juhi Chawla. Bollywood Bubble gave the movie 4 stars.
