Rhea Kapoor Can Chat Endlessly!
Rhea loves marketing, she loves being off-screen and she also loves gossiping for hours, hours and hours. She started her non-glamorous journey at the age of 21 years, in the form of ‘Aisha’, Anil Kapoor’s home production.
Rhea says, “I was 21 when I started, I was obviously retarded and foolish but when this project came up, dad thought I would be able to make it better. You tend to take more risks when you're younger, so that's good. All I told myself was ‘I'm going to make a kickass film'.”
She adds, “I become a caterpillar in front of the camera. My limbs don't know what to do.”
Rhea also admits that she just do not have the looks which can take her forward in the world of glamour and fashion.
She adds, “I've got Anil Kapoor's face, you know, the chubby face. I don't look good in photographs… I'm not comfortable marketing myself.”
Her entry in Bollywood either as a producer or as an actor was very natural as she has the background of being in this field. Right from her grandfather, father, Uncle Boney Kapoor and Aunt Sri Devi all form her background.
Rhea adds on this, “This is my vision of a family business. Why wouldn't I go into it? It is fun! The reality is that when you grow up around something, it is in your blood and is dear to you. I love performing arts; I love the whole process. Acting — that's not my vibe. But producing gives me the ability to learn and do everything in a film. I love marketing."
She also describes that how crucial is the role of a producer and countless dimensions have to be undertaken before finalizing a particular scene. She describes that if there is a scene of a hero sitting at the table and writing, then the angle the table is placed in, the way the hero is writing, the point where he is looking even the ink he is using all has to be considered.
