It is as a part of this initiative that Rishi Kapoor has travelled to this part of the world. However, a trip over the weekend means that Rishi Kapoor missed out on the premier of his son Ranbir Kapoor’s Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani. “Yes, I can’t help it. The date for the event had been announced and I needed to fulfil my commitment. I would have loved to be a part of Ranbir’s moment of glory. I will catch the film when I return a week later”, says Rishi Kapoor. Meanwhile, his better half Neetu Singh has caught the film and is apparently quite happy with the final results. “I am sure by the time people are reading this; the verdict would anyways have been out”, he smiles, “While I am quite positive about Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani due to its fun element, Neetu is very happy with what she saw. I am sure Ranbir fans would be happy to see him in a different light altogether after Wake Up Sid.” Incidentally, Rishi Kapoor has earlier worked with Ajab Prem… director Raj Kumar Santoshi in Damini which had won critical as well as commercial acclaim. On his return, Rishi Kapoor would straight away head for Turkey where he has a shooting schedule planned for Hema Malini’s Tell Me Oh Khuda. Directed by debutant Mayur Puri, the film is being touted as Esha Deol’s comeback film and stars Rishi Kapoor in a principal role other than Arjan Bajwa and Vinod Khanna. “I am looking forward to working with Hemaji again”, he says, “Though she doesn’t star in the film, she would be there in the capacity of a producer. There would be a Turkish actress opposite me in the film.” In 2010, Rishi Kapoor would also be seen in Raj Kanwar’s Sadiyaan. He would soon be beginning work on Nikhil Advani’s Patiala House where he would be seen with Akshay Kumar syet again after Namastey London.
