When Ranbir Kapoor wrote a heartwarming foreword for dad Rishi Kapoor’s biography ‘Khullam Khulla’
Unlike other father-son relationship, Rishi Kapoor had a different kind of relationship with his son. In many interviews, Rishi had admitted that he couldn’t be friendly with his son because he didn’t want to. Though Ranbir was not that close to his father, his love and respect were something every father would want from his son or children.
He wrote, “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.”
He also wrote, “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.”
Ranbir also expressed his love for his father in the forward by writing, “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.”
Ranbir grew closer to his dad when he came to know about his cancer. In fact, when his mom Neetu Singh broke the news of his dad’s cancer, Ranbir broke into tears. Ranbir as a doting son stood as a pillar of strength for his parents all through the hard times.
