Rishi Kapoor, the first ever chocolate boy of Hindi Cinema has played lover-boy on the big screens for decades now. From his debut ‘Mera Naam Joker’ to this day, Rishi has been loved and renowned for his romantic roles.
He was featured with Amrita Singh in the movie ‘Dunuiya’(1984) under Dharma Productions. Now after 27 long years the veteran actor will reappear under the Dharma Productions banner.
He has two films for Dharma, Agneepath releasing on the 26th of January 2012 and Student of the Year directed by Karan Johar also scheduled for release in 2012.
Both these roles are extremely different from each other, something that Rishi has never played on the big-screen before. In Hrithik’s Agneepath he plays a negative role and in Student Of The Year he is the dean of the school.
When asked about the ‘different’ characters that he is playing in the two films, Rishi says “This is that time in my career when I get to experiment and I don’t want to play the conventional father. Besides, I can’t say no to Karan (Johar).”
