After a rocking performance in LUCK BY CHANCE, Rishi Kapoor is making a comeback as a central protagonist in CHINTU JI.
CHINTU JI is about a film star (played by Rishi Kapoor) who wants to contest elections from his hometown but isn't quite serious about politics. At heart, he is still a brat that he has been throughout his life and his only motive is to mint money and make merry. Ironically, his entry in his village only ends up making life better for all there, even though it is by default than design.
So what is the film all about? Is it also an autobiography of Rishi Kapoor, the man who regaled the audience for three decades in a row (70s to 90s) as a leading hero?
Negates Rishi Kapoor, ''No, the film is not about the journey of Rishi Kapoor, a film star. It is about the moment in the life of this film star where he tries to do something new. It's his stint in politics which is covered in CHINTU JI. It was nice to see shades of my own life in the film's narrative.''
He adds, ''The film comes with a message. It states that if Government takes care of your basic necessities in villages and small towns as well, the inhabitants there won't be compelled to leave these places and go to cities with dreams of mega bucks. If at all there are enough jobs to keep people occupied and well off in villages, they will not be forced to leave their native place. It's matter of basic amenities like electricity, water, mobile facilities etc. being made available, that's it!''
Produced by Kaleidoscope Entertainment, CHINTU JI is a comedy and is directed by Ranjit Kapoor.
