Probed on what role Rishi Kapoor played in his son Ranbir Kapoor's career, the 64-year-old actor said, "I don't interfere in Ranbir's career. I'm his dad not his secretary." He was present at the inauguration event of 8th edition of Jagran Film Festival at New Delhi on Saturday. The film festival was inaugurated by veteran actors Rishi Kapoor, and Union Minister of Information and Broadcasting Venkaiah Naidu.
Talking about his career, the actor said, "Mujhe career mei jaldi dhake lage aur shayad isliye maine khud ko sambhaal liya and that's the secret of my success (I got setbacks quite early on in my career and maybe that's why I learnt to take care of myself, that's the secret to my success.)"
"I've even bought an award. Mai tha us kisam ka us waqt. Maine ki hai aisi galtiyaan and I accept it. (I was that kind of person and those were the time. I have committed mistakes and I accept them)", he shared.
"I really don't understand what has gym got to do with acting", Rishi comments on the current acting trends.
Talking about his debut, he said, "Bobby was a game changer for all of us."
