Mumbai: Rishi Kapoor has never bothered to watch his words and always goes by the ‘no holds barred’ policy in life. And, this forthright attitude reflects in his autobiography, ‘Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored’. From revealing his chanced encounter with India’s most wanted terrorist, Dawood Ibrahim to being almost beaten up by one of his contemporaries, Kapoor is not the one to distort facts.
Back in the days when Kapoor was unmarried, a scorned Sanjay Dutt was after his life so much so that he had gone to the actor’s home to beat him up. It all happened over Tina Munim (Ambani). One of the chapters in the ‘Kapoor & Sons’ star’s book clearly mentions about a fist-fight that almost happened between Dutt and him over Tina Munim who was having an affair with Sanju then and he thought Rishi too was involved with her.
Enraged, Sanju asked good friend Gulshan Grover to accompany him to the Kapoor house only to find out that all of it was a big misunderstanding and that Rishi Kapoor was very much engaged to Neetu Singh.
“Sanjay and I were like brothers so one day he told me, ‘We have to go to Chintu’s house to beat him up. We went to do that but his fiancée Neetuji managed to convince us that Chintu was not having an affair so we left,” Grover confirmed this story with a daily.
Interestingly, Rishi Kapoor’s son will soon be playing Sanjay Dutt in his biopic. Talking about this latest development, Grover said, “The irony of it is that today Chintu’s son Ranbir is playing the very Sanjay Dutt, who had wanted to beat up his father one day, and Sanju loves Ranbir too!”
Gulshan’s bond with Rishi has only gotten better over the years but his friendship with Sanju Baba seems to have faded with time.
“Though we are in touch, it’s not the same anymore. I adore Chintu and keep meeting him. But with Sanju the problem is I would keep giving him correct advice and he does not like that so he creates situations where he can avoid those very people who give him good advice (laughs),” explained the actor....
