- I support the film and wish her all the best at Cannes: Rishi Kapoor
- He earlier said that doing cameo in Manto was a "mistake"
- "My fans complain to me why I have to do short roles," he had said
I have done one scene in Nandita Das's film "Manto" in a cameo. Just for the respect and admiration I have for her. Some mischief monger has tried to create a wedge between her and me. Absolutely untrue! I support the film and wish her all the best at Cannes Film Festival!— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 29, 2018
It is unclear if by 'mischief monger,' Rishi Kapoor means the journalist to whom he said last week, "It is a very wrong thing that I did Manto. Audience doesn't know why I did this 15 seconds role. They think I do not have work, so I did this role. My fans complain to me why I have to do short roles. It is a very wrong thing I did. I shouldn't be doing this. Either give me an elaborate role where I am happy or else I won't do. I don't think I will ever repeat this mistake." The interview was carried by news agency PTI.
It was indeed a pleasure sharing the screen with @chintskap Sir, what an amazing energy you possess even now.— Nawazuddin Siddiqui (@Nawazuddin_S) April 19, 2017
Thank you Nawaz! Did that bit for Nandita Das and "Manto"-title role played by you. We will have fun working together in the future.Regards! https://t.co/DJA9mC4Tgj— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) April 19, 2017
