Rishi to address students at London School Of Economics


So far it was only Karan Johar who got invited to prestigious international forums to speak on Bollywood. Now Indian cinema has a new voice. Quite suddenly Agneepath has opened up new doors for Rishi Kapoor. The latest is that he has been invited by the prestigious London School Of Economics to address the students on the Indian entertainment industry.

Rishi's lecture at the London School Of Economics is part the institution's India week which kick starts today.

Says Rishi proudly, "There are other names to talk about other aspects of Indian culture. But yeah, I will be the sole representative for our Indian entertainment industry. And you know what? I'm proud to be going to such a prestigious institution on behalf of an industry where my grandfather, father, uncles, wife and now son are working. So far I feel I've been known as Raj Kapoor's son and lately Ranbir Kapoor's father. Not that I minded. But it's good to be known for myself finally."

Rishi flies to London yesterday.

He says excitedly, "They have a whole packed time-table planned for me. But I am really looking forward to addressing those bright kids. The best brains from the world over are at the London School Of Economics."

Rishi isn't preparing any speech. "Paagal hai kya? When have I ever prepared anything? All my performances have been unrehearsed. Why should this be any different? For someone who didn't make it to college, not bad at all, eh?"
