Ranbir Kapoor dons dad Rishi Kapoor's look

This is the first time Ranbir Kapoor is sharing screen space with his parents Neetu Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor and the Kapoor lad will emulate his father Rishi in the forthcoming movie, ‘Besharam’. Ranbir Kapoor will match step with his father's popular number from the 1980 blockbuster ‘Karz’.

Two decades ago, Rishi Kapoor mesmerized the audience with the track ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ dressed in a metallic outfit sung by legendary Kishore Kumar and now his son Ranbir Kapoor will match step with his father’s song.

This time Ranbir Kapoor will don similar outfit for Anurag Kashyap’s ‘Besharam’. An industry source revealed candidly: “He (Ranbir) will remind viewers of Rishi’s song ‘Om shanti om’ in one of the songs from his next. He will sport a metallic outfit that is similar to the one worn by Rishi in the number.”

However, director Abhinav Kashyap said that this was an unintentional co-incidence. “The resemblance in both outfits is uncanny. However, we had not planned this. When we realised the commonality, we laughed about it.”

The source reasoned behind the same-to-same look: “When it was composed and choreographed, the makers thought that a metallic dress would go best with it and they remembered that Rishi had sported something similar in the ‘Karz’ song.” The song will be choreographed by Remo D'Souza.

The film stars Ranbir Kapoor, his parents Rishi and Neetu Kapoor, and an Indian-Australian film/theatre actress Pallavi Sharda among others. The film is set to hit theaters on October 2.
