Veteran actor Randhir Kapoor is reportedly suffering from dementia.
His nephew, Ranbir Kapoor told news broadcaster NDTV, “My uncle Randhir Kapoor, who is going through an early stage of dementia, came to me after the film and said, ‘Tell dad that he is amazing, and where is he, let’s call him’. Art crosses the boundaries of medical conditions… And a good piece of storytelling really embodies that.”
Ranbir is currently promoting his late father, Rishi Kapoor’s final film ‘Sharmaji Namkeen’, out now on Amazon Prime Video. He said, “The show must go on – you all have heard it but I have seen my father live that. After his demise, we thought the film wouldn’t get completed. We thought of trying VFX or I could wear prosthetics and complete the role but nothing was working out. It was a tough time for all of us. And that’s when Mr. Paresh Rawal stepped in. It was very generous of him to take up this challenge.”
