'Rishi Kapoor was spontaneous and had a great sense of humour'

...says Kannada actor Diganth, who shared screenspace with the Kapoor scion in his Bollywood debut, Wedding Pullav

Published: 30th April 2020

Diganth, who made his Bollywood debut with the Binod Pradhan directorial, Wedding Pullav, got to work with veteran actor Rishi Kapoor.

Paying rich tribute to the Kapoor scion who passed away earlier today,  Diganth says,  "Though he had acted in so many films, he still insisted on the monitor. He was a thorough professional. He would get angry if the assistant director would call for another take before looking at the monitor. Coming from a cinema family, he often followed the old school method. He was strict while filming, but off-camera, he was always jovial. It was an absolute pleasure working with Rishi Kapoor."

Diganth adds, "He was spontaneous, and his sense of humour was great. He was very close to our film producer (Shashi Ranjan) and they would often discuss the current lifestyle of various actors and films."

Talking about the biggest takeaway from working with Rishi Kapoor, Diganth says, "Wedding Pullav was a romcom, and I got to learn a lot of things in terms, where to be yourselves and body language. I would like to imbibe his sense of acting and timing."
