MUMBAI: Actor Rishi Kapoor says it is important to recognise the role of artistes and cinema in the country as they have contributed immensely to its cultural, financial growth.

The 67-year-old actor completes 50 years in the industry next year.

Asked whether he looked at his career with fulfilment, Rishi told PTI, "That is something the people have to say. I don't. But I have to wait for you people to say that this man has been working for 50 years, but no one does that (talk about contribution).

"The government doesn't. That's the tragedy. The government changes but this sadness remains."

The actor said its about time a culture is set in where people from the field of arts, culture and even business are given their due recognition from the government.

"I can talk about entertainment tax, how much we contribute. If cinema wasn't there, a large chunk of money in the national treasury wouldn't have been there. I am tired of saying this... acknowledge the role of artistes and cinema in the country. But they land on deaf ears, what can I do," he added.

Rishi will be next seen in "The Body" co-starring Emraan Hashmi and Sobhita Dhulipala. The film is scheduled to be released on December 13.

Box Office's Favourite Child

28 Sep, 2019
Ranbir Kapoor is box office's favourite child. From quirky roles to meaningful performances, the method actor has never failed to impress his audience. He also joined the World’s Highest-Paid Actors list in 2015 at the 32nd position. He also became Bollywood's second highest-paid actor in 2017 with a net worth $8.5 million, thanks to the superhit 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil', starring Anushka Sharma and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. On the personal front, the actor's friends and family are extremely fond of him. The 'Sanju' actor, who is currently dating Alia Bhatt, was affectionately called Ganglu by grandfather Raj Kapoor. While he doesn't have a nickname, his mother Neetu has often addressed him as Rana, Raymond, Baba on social media (and we don't know if she has his approval!). On his 37th birthday, here's a look at Jagga Jasoos's unique performances on the big screen.
