Rishi Kapoor says he would have worked more with Nasir Hussain but it was the guilt that kept him away from working with the filmmaker. Rishi worked with Hussain in films like ‘Zamane Ko Dikhana Hai’ and ‘Hum Kisise Kum Naheen’. “I worked with Nasir sahab in two movies.
I would have worked with him in four movies but guilt kept me away. I somehow felt that ‘Zamane Ko Dikhana Hai’ did not perform as well as ‘Hum Kisise Kum Naheen’, that’s why I felt that I must have hurt Nasir sahab’s feelings and hence shouldn’t work with him,” Rishi told Zee Classic as a part of the ongoing Nasir Hussain Film Festival on the channel, read a statement.
The actor said Hussain would still call him and ask him to meet in his office. “And I would always make some excuse like I am busy or I am working. Pancham (R.D. Burman) would also call me asking me to meet Nasir sahab but because of my guilt, I felt he should work with other actors. Pancham da, Majrooh Sultanpuri uncle, Nasir sahab and I were a fabulous team,” he added. The actor, who has also worked in films like ‘Bobby’, ‘Kabhie Kabhie’, ‘Prem Rog’ and ‘Bol Radha Bol’, also revealed that Rs 90,000 was spent on his costume for the song ‘Bachna ae haseeno’ from the film ‘Hum Kisise Kum Naheen’.
