Riding high on the success of his latest film Agneepath, Rishi Kapoor has more reasons to smile. He has been invited to address students at the prestigious London School of Economics in London as a part of their India’s week which kick-starts from February 20th.
Previously only Karan Johar shared the honour of addressing students on Bollywood and Indian Cinema but now with Rishi Kapoor addressing new students, Bollywood surely seems to have gone great heights.
London School of Economics SU India will have a weeklong session and would be discussing issues pertaining to Modern India and anyone who has keen interest in learning about the country. The event would begin on February 20th with inauguration by the legendary actor who would be addressing the students on filmmaking in India and other key issues.
A proud Rishi says he feels honoured and humbled to represent an industry where all his family members ranging from his grandfather the great Prithviraj Kapoor, his father the legendary Raj Kapoor and uncles Shammi, Shashi Kapoor and his wife Neetu Singh Kapoor and son Ranbir are a part of. Also he adds that there were many names who could speak on Indian culture and his name has come first among all pleases him more. So far he has been associated as Raj Kapoor’s son or Ranbir Kapoor’s father and he feels happy that finally with this he would be known as himself.
Rishi flies to London on 19th where he would interact with the best brains from the LSE. Regarding his preparations he adds that never has he prepared anything in life and has delivered unrehearsed performances and this is no different.
We feel honoured and humbled to see an Indian actor in the stature of Kapoor representing the country at a prestigious event like this. Especially when he himself never made it to college and is addressing students of the biggest and prestigious institution is an achievement and feather in the cap for him for sure. We wish him all the best.
