'I used to meet him without any formalities'

The 'Hero' actress told Zoom in an interview, 'Rishi ji was amazing. He has worked with people from many generations and made them feel at home. He did the same with me. He lived so close to me in Pali Hill that I could walk to his house from my house. I could spend some time with him and Neetu ji. I think he was the only actor I could do that with. I would meet him off-set and without any hassle.'

Rishi Kapoor used to pull Meenakshi's leg

Rishi Kapoor was known for his jovial nature. He used to have a lot of fun with his co-stars. He used to tease Meenakshi a lot. She told, 'He used to say, 'Sometimes I don't understand your dance. Reduce your Bharatnatyam.'

The actress, who quit Bollywood and stayed away from the limelight for nearly 26 years and now lives in Texas, US with her husband and kids, recalled the time when the “Bobby” actor helped her set up a Twitter account and advised her about making a comeback. “Rishi ji was someone I felt 100 per cent comfortable with and could ask him what if I wanted to make a comeback! When I started my Twitter account, I asked Rishi to help me and give me some followers and he did. He never questioned and he never made excuses. I am grateful to him,” she said.

Rishi Kapoor shared the photo

Let us tell you that in the year 2015, Rishi Kapoor shared Meenakshi's photo on Twitter and asked fans if they could guess who she was? Rishi said, 'I could not recognize her for a moment. What a lovely surprise. I will tell the name in 30 minutes.' His tweet went quite viral. He further wrote, 'Damini MS lives happily in Dallas, America with husband Harish Mysore and two children, a girl and a boy. She visits relatives and if she gets a good role, she can work in films.'

Meenakshi said this about Ranbir

The 'Zorm' actress also opened up about not being in touch with 'Amar Akbar Anthony' Rishi Kapoor's son Ranbir Kapoor. She said that she regrets not being able to contact him. The actress said, “It is unfortunate that I am not in touch with Rishi ji's son Ranbir and we don't know each other very well. I hope I will rectify this and meet him, especially now that he is married and has a child.” She further added, “Rishi ji was given the tag of chocolate boy and Amitabh ji (Bachchan) was called angry young man. Both were stuck playing similar characters. Then both decided to take a break and do better roles. I saw the same sharpness in Ranbir's eyes in 'Animal', which I saw in Rishi ji's eyes in 'Agneepath'.”
