Talking about one incident when Rishi revealed how he got to know about what is happening with Ranbir, Abhishek told Film Companion, "We were shooting in Shimla, and in the morning, I went to his room because I used to sit and have coffee with him in the morning. I walked into the room, and he was in his lungi. He had these small glasses, and he was on his computer. I found that very cute from behind, this visual."

When Abhishek asked Rishi what he was doing, he got introduced to a celebrity gossip website, which the late actor would often read. At the time, Abhishek did not know about the website. When he asked Rishi what it was, the veteran actor said, "the only way I can tell what Ranbir is doing".

Abhishek added, "And I am like, 'This guy, he is amazing! He had no filter. He would just say it.' So, he was following (the website) to know what Ranbir was up to. I found that so sweet."


In an earlier interview to India Today, Rishi Kapoor had opened up about his relationship with his son Ranbir Kapoor. He had said that he regretted not being as close to Ranbir as he would have liked to be. He had said, "There is something I am really sorry about. We don't have friendship between us, probably because my father didn't do that. I love him, and he is my only son, but he is closer to his mother."

He is survived by wife Neetu, son Ranbir Kapoor and daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni.
