Outspoken Rishi Kapoor has once again attacked filmmaker Anurag Basu and Anurag Kashyap for delivering flop films starring his son, Ranbir Kapoor. In an interview with Huffington Post, the veteran actor said that he enjoyed Sanju unlike Bombay Velvet and Jagga Jasoos. Rishi Kapoor said, ''They were bad films. They were indulgent. Even Sanjay Leela Bhansali made Saawariya. I mean his forte is something else and he made something else''.
Criticising the Gangs of Wasseypur director, Rishi said, "Anurag Kashyap, you give him so much money, he literally didn't know what to do with it''. He didn't even spare Basu, who gave one of the biggest flops of Ranbir's career so far. ''Jagga Jasoos was such a bad film, such a bad story. It was absolutely rubbish. I questioned Ranbir and he said, 'Papa, the man who gave me Barfi, how could I question his... I thought he'd be responsible enough to know to keep the story at its point.''
However, Rishi Kapoor is quite happy with Ranbir's latest blockbuster Sanju, which has minted Rs 330 crores at the box office. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani, it is a biopic on the life of actor Sanjay Dutt. The film has an ensemble cast starring Paresh Rawal, Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Dia Mirza, Vicky Kaushal and Manisha Koirala.
Rishi Kapoor will next be seen in Abhinav Sinha's Mulk, which will release on August 3. His last film was Umesh Shukla's 102 Not Out.
