Filmmaker Karan Malhotra has said that the Ranbir Kapoor and his late father, actor Rishi Kapoor may have a similar “culture” of acting, but their personalities are far apart. Karan is gearing up for the release of his next Shamshera with Ranbir in the titular role; he also worked with Rishi in his 2012 film Agneepath. †Also Read: Ranbir Kapoor Says Rishi Kapoor Told Him His Movies Won’t Make Him National Star

Shamshera is set in the fictional city of Kaza and tells the story of shamshera (Ranbir) fighting for the freedom and dignity of his tribe from the clutches of a ruthless authoritarian General Shuddh Singh (played by Sanjay Dutt).

Comparing his experience working with Ranbir and Rishi, Karan told ETimes, “I think their acting culture is very similar. But their personalities on set have completely different interfaces. It’s like the North Pole and the South Pole. Chintu was a very flamboyant, loud, out there and confrontational person. Ranbir is the opposite of that. Ranbir is happy-go-lucky. He does his masti calmly. He is both happy with himself and indifferent.”

Rishi played the antagonist in Karan’s Agneepath, starring Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra and Sanjay Dutt. The filmmaker recalled that he had a lot of fights with Rishi during the filming of Agneepath.

“I had so many fights and fights with Uncle Chintu while shooting Agneepath. And I wouldn’t want to forget that whole experience with him for a moment because I cherish it so much. I really miss that aspect. He always challenged me and my conviction with him it was like arguing and fighting with your parents Woh gaali bhi dete the, dhakka bhi maarte the (he would swear and even push me) and would say pagal ho gaya hai tu (you have gone mad) We were often at odds in the past.’

The filmmaker also shared that the only similarity the father-son duo share is that they “surrender to the filmmaker’s vision.”
