So, these are some of my early bearings of movies,” Rishi Kapoor concluded with a smile. Rishi reveals that the film’s lead actor Nargis Dutt had to bribe him to do that shot finally.

Rishi Kapoor also revisited that day when his father mentioned to his mother, Krishna Raj Kapoor, that he should act in Mera Naam Joker. “I have been told that there was a shot I had to give for Shree 420 and my elder brother and elder sister were also in the shot. So, Nargis ji bribed me by saying, ‘I will give you a chocolate if you keep your eyes open and don’t cry in the shot.’ I kept my eyes open only for that chocolate and that was my first shot ever,” said Rishi Kapoor. Rishi Kapoor made his debut in his father Raj Kapoor’s 1970 film Mera Naam Joker. Rishi played the younger Raj Kapoor in the film which released in 1970, three years before Rishi made his debut as a leading actor in Bobby. Rishi Kapoor, who has been a part of the Hindi film industry for 45 years now, also revisited that day when his father mentioned to his mother Krishna Raj Kapoor that he should act in Mera Naam Joker. “I don’t remember this but Shashi uncle told me that. The two interacted with each other and a few from the media recently at a special event to promote their upcoming film which releases on May 4. The 65-year-old actor also shared an anecdote from his childhood, something that his paternal uncle Shashi Kapoor had told him. Today, that shot counts as his first brush with the movies, but at that time it was quite a task for the crew to get him to complete the scene, where he also had older brother Randhir Kapoor and sister Ritu Kapoor for company. The youngest on the set of Shree 420 and naturally oblivious to the camera in front of him, Rishi, as he recalls, made it very difficult for his father to shoot his only scene in the film. It was about walking in the rain but whenever that shot would happen and water would fall on me, I would start crying. Because of that, they weren’t able to shoot that scene. The actor went down the memory lane as his 102 Not Out co-star Amitabh Bachchan got him talking about what prompted him to join films.
