All of us failed.” Rishi Kapoor had added, “Hum sab 11 fail hain.” When Karan Johar had asked if nobody went to the college, Randhir Kapoor had said, “Only girls went to the college, Ritu and Rima.” To this, Rishi Kapoor had added, “And Ranbir, yeah, Ranbir has gone to the college.”
During the conversation, the Kapoor brothers had recalled some of their childhood memories. Rajiv Kapoor had shared that his elder brothers, Randhir and Rishi used to bully him. He had said, “Being the youngest, 15 years to Randhir Kapoor and 10 years to Rishi Kapoor, so whatever you do or whatever you say is always looked down and never taken seriously until and unless you make a serious bond, then a second thought is given to it.” When asked about their feelings on having a little brother after so long with the birth of Rajiv Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor had said, “He is my son. I treat him like my son.” Continuing to this, Rishi Kapoor had said, “Its like my father and my youngest chacha, Shashi Kapoor.
