Rishi Kapoor is quiet impressed with son Ranbir Kapoor's transformation for upcoming biopic 'Sanju', and the veteran actor says he is proud of the hard work the young star has put in for his role in the Rajkummar Hirani-directed movie.
The teaser and first look of 'Sanju', which is based on the life of Bollywood's one of the most controversial stars, Sanjay Dutt, was released recently and Rishi says the response Ranbir is getting for his look is because of his dedication to the craft. The 65-year-old actor believes Ranbir has inherited his passion for cinema from him.
"I found it very good. He is looking the part. He has worked very hard for all those different parts. To make up his body, he took six weeks off and grew hair. He is an actor and he has passion as well. Thankfully, one thing that I have passed on to him is my passion for work and films," Rishi said. Ranbir's last outing 'Jagga Jassos' had failed to garner much attention from the audiences, but Rishi believes an actor should not succumb to failures.
"...Some films will work, some won't. No actor has 100 per cent track record. But the passion should be continuous. The fire within you as an actor should always keep burning. That should be the mantra for any good actor," he said.
Rishi said Ranbir is a risk taker and the fact that he does one film at a time makes things even tougher for him."He has a very different choice of films. He has taken a lot of risks at the cost of what? He doesn't have four films to fall back on, he does one film at a time. Like if his one film flops like 'Bombay Velvet' or 'Jagga Jassos' he has no work.
