After Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible, there is the Kapoor Cruise. Rishi Kapoor won’t be here for the release of his new eagerly awaited film All Is Well.
Explaining his absence the versatile actor says, “All of us are off on a 3-week Mediterranean cruise. It was planned long before. There’s no way I’d give up that to be here for my film’s release.”
‘All of us means’ the entire Kapoor Khandaan. The matriarch Mrs Krishna Raj Kapoor, her three sons Randhir, Rishi (with wife Neetu) and Rajeev and two daughters Reema and Ritu, their husbands , children…and so on.
So is this cruise inspired by Zoya Akhtar’s Dil Dhadakne Do? Rishi protests furiously, “Please! We’ve been doing this for years now. It’s just that no one knew about it.”
On Tuesday, before Rishi leaves for the cruise, he will be shooting an episode of Comedy Nights With Kapil. “This is my first time on Kapil’s show. He has been calling me to come. This is a good time to get on his show. I will be shooting with Kapil and heading straight to the airport for our cruise.”
