Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, in an interview, had shared the kind of father, Rishi Kapoor has been, “Growing up he was a big hero and really busy and we were busy with our lives. But he made it a point to be home when we were home which meant we could not go out after six! He would play games – he loved quizzing Ranbir and me to check our general knowledge. He was a very strict parent and we were scared of him but now I am glad he was. He was a superstar but we were very grounded.”
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had also shared how much in awe of, is she of her father, Rishi Kapoor and brother, Ranbir Kapoor. When asked if she watches their films, the star daughter-cum-sister had shared, “It’s amazing! I watch all his films. I go the theatre to watch only his films, and of course, my brother’s. I think everybody doesn’t get the chance or a second inning. My dad did very well in his first (phase), and then he started doing different roles in his second innings. He’s so fantastic, and I am so proud of him. He played all the romantic roles offered to him with honesty, and now he’s doing a Mulk, Kapoor and Sons, he’s even played the bad guy in Agneepath! At the age he’s at, he is such a workaholic and passionate about movies.”
As we mentioned, Rishi Kapoor is currently undergoing treatment in New York, updates from Riddhima Kapoor Sahni about his health often comes as a relief to us. She had shared in an interview, “He's fine, nothing to worry about. I was never worried anyway. He's just getting his routine tests done, like he said on Twitter, after so many years of wear and tear. He's getting everything done, so hoping for the best."
Previously, for an NDTV interview, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had described her actor-father and was quoted as saying, "My dad is as honest on Twitter as he is in real life - he is a very straightforward and that's what's amazing because in today's times, we need more people like him who are not afraid to speak their mind and are totally frank about certain issues, so kudos to him."
