Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who will be seen playing a cameo in Nandita Das’ Manto, said that he chose to do the film just because he had respect and admiration for the actress-filmmaker.

"I have done one scene in Nandita Das' film 'Manto' in a cameo. Just for the respect and admiration I have for her," Rishi tweeted on Sunday.

The 65-year-old actor's comments come after he said in an interview that working in "Manto" was a "wrong" call.

"Some mischief monger has tried to create a wedge between her and me. Absolutely untrue! I support the film and wish her all the best at Cannes Film Festival," he tweeted.

Manto is a historical period drama film about the controversial writer Saadat Hasan Manto who is known for his writings around the partition of India and Pakistan.

It is the only Indian film in Un Certain Regard category of the Cannes Film Festival, to be held from May 8-19.

The film also stars Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Rasika Dugal and Tahir Raj Bhasin.
