Rishi Kapoor was one of the most loved actors of Bollywood. When he had made his acting debut with the film, Bobby, he had become every girl’s dream man. Just like Rishi Kapoor, his son, Ranbir Kapoor too enjoys a huge fanbase and could make any girl go weak on the knees with his dapper looks. Talking about the father-son bond, Ranbir had always wished to be friendlier with his father, Rishi.
