Rishi Kapoor is one of Bollywood’s finest veteran actors. The 102 Not Out actor manages to excel at every role he’s ever played, however, in Manto, Rishi will be seen in a different avatar, reported Hindustan Times.
The 65-year-old star gave a glimpse of his character on Twitter. He wrote, “Playing this incorrigible, sleazy film producer in Manto along with the terrific Nawazuddin Siddiqui.” He then continued that it was a guest appearance that he has made for director Nandita Das. Rishi also pointed out his outfit that shows his pants being tied at the chest – a fashion trend of the 50s.
One fan on the social media platform was quick to notice that the scene resembles an actual incident from 1951. He wrote, “Here is a picture of Bollywood auditions in 1951. The resemblance shows the great detailing by the director.”
Manto’s trailer was released on August 15, raising questions regarding Saadat Hasan Manto’s relevance today. The film stars Nawazuddin in the lead. Veteran actor Paresh Rawal plays a crucial role in the film as well along with Divya Dutta and many others. Manto is all set to hit screens on September 21.
