I do wish sometimes that I could be friendlier with him or even spend more time with him.”

We do not have a phone relationship. When I get married and have children, I would want to change that dynamic with them. I don’t want my relationship with my children to be as formal as the one I have with my father. I want to be friendlier, be more connected, spend more time with them than he did with me.”
The actor concluded his piece by acknowledging his work. He said, “I love my father dearly and have immense respect for him. I’m inspired by him and never want to let him down. I know he has only my best interests at heart. He also takes care of the financial side of my work. So we are more connected now. His confidence in me and my work makes me take pride in it. I persevere that much harder because of this. His belief and his encouragement are important to me,” read the foreword. ‘I Love My Father’ Says Ranbir Kapoor After The Death Of His Father Rishi Kapoor
