That Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor are coming together once again on the big screen is a huge deal. There have been many promotional events of 102 Not Out. But the only person who isn’t enjoying all this extra attention is Rishi Kapoor. In fact, the actor, known for his erratic behaviour online, made no bones about his dislike for back-to-back promotional events.
At such an event recently, the actor seemed to have reached his wit’s end and declared that he was fed up of finishing one interaction, only to be led into another room full of media persons.
“I do not possess the strength, patience and charm to speak to each and every media person. In fact, I do not derive any pleasure while giving an interview at all. Aggressive ho jauga. Naaraz ho jauga. Aur interview lene wale ko peet dunga."
“I know you guys will ask me the same old questions. ‘How was it working with Amitabh Bachchan?’, ‘Why did you choose this film?’, etc. So repeating the same stuff is difficult for me,” he added.
“You guys need to keep in mind not to repeat the same questions again and again. Also, do not interrupt me while I am answering one question as this will make me uninterested to continue with the chit-chat,” he continued.
He added, “If you think talking to me on one-on-one basis will give you an excellent copy, then you are sadly mistaken. When our Prime Minister talks on Man Ki Baat, you guys write it accordingly. I will answer only once and you guys can write it in your style. I have never liked to interact individually and in future, I shall never give exclusive interviews.”
He also angrily said, “Now don’t ask me my comments on Asaram being bailed or jailed or how the trailer of Sanju is. Whenever Ranbir works with me, then you can ask me such questions.”
