Mumbai, April 9 (IANS) Given the fact that Subhash Ghai had last directed Rishi Kapoor in the role of a pop star for “Karz” 32 years ago, it was tough for the filmmaker to direct the veteran actor in the role of a villain in his upcoming film “Kaanchi”.
Ghai has been busy shooting for “Kaanchi” these days, and he recently shot a scene with Rishi.
“It was a crazy experience for me to work with Rishi Kapoor after 32 years. It was tough to make him a powerful and interesting villain after presenting him as a pop star in ‘Karz’. In ‘Kaanchi’, he plays a business tycoon with guns, girls and guitars around him. It was fun,” said Ghai.
Rishi even played the trademark “Karz” tune on the guitar for “Kaanchi”,.
“It was overwhelming when Rishi played guitar with the ‘Karz’ tune that he loves. We shot for seven days and now we are heading for three weeks of outdoor shoot,” said Ghai.
“Kaanchi”, which will release Aug 30, features newcomer Mishti, alongside actors like Karthik Tiwari and Mithun Chakraborty.
