Rishi Kapoor plays cop for first time; courtesy 'Besharam' Ranbir
Friday, August 2, 2013 • Hindi Comments

Looks like Ranbir Kapoor has got his wish fulfilled. We were recently informed that it was Ranbir who suggested his father’s (Rishi Kapoor) name to director Abhinav Singh Kashyap when the casting for their upcoming film, ‘Besharam’, began.

A source close to the production revealed, "Ranbir was on board from the time he heard the script. When Abhinav said that they had to cast a senior actor to play a cop, Ranbir simply said that his father had never played a policeman in his (40-year long) career. That caught everyone’s attention."

Now, of course, thanks to that, the Kapoor trio (Ranbir, Rishi and Neetu) will be seen together in the film for the first time. When asked about this Abhinav said, "I am excited to have all three of them in my film. I didn’t know that Rishiji had never played a cop in his entire career. I was so excited to have Rishiji and Neetuji play cops for the first time."

‘Besharam’ will hit theatres on October 2.
