Ranbir Kapoor, who had a great year with all his films doing well, will be seen in a new role in 2010.Buzz, is that the young Kapoor is all set to direct Amitabh and Abhishek Bachchan in his directorial debut late next year. Reports claim that ,Ranbir also missed an opportunity to team up with his dad in the recently released "Rocket Singh - The Salesman of The Year" because producer Aditya Chopra thought it wasn`t a good idea.
According to a source, “The entire Yash Raj team was all for casting Rishi Kapoor as Ranbir`s boss. Only Adi (Aditya Chopra) thought the audiences would not accept Rishi Kapoor as a negative boss to his own son. We had to relent.”
Rishi confirms that he was indeed considered for Ranbir`s boss` part in the film. Rishi said,"I`m told all at Yash Raj wanted me to play the role. They finally decided otherwise. I think they felt the baap-beta jodi wouldn`t be acceptable as boss-employee.”
However, Rishi is all praise for Manish Choudhary who replaces him in the film. "Manish is the discovery of the year."
Rishi who is also much impressed with his son’s performance said, "Ranbir has lived the character Rocket Singh, though I feel there should`ve been more Punjabiyat in his speech."
Ranbir is thrilled to get a thumbs-up from his dad. The actor said, “Dad is my greatest critic. He`s such a brilliant actor, I can never match him. When he said he liked my performance in `Rocket Singh`, I finally felt I had given a decent performance.”
