Director Abhinav Kashyap has managed to bring together Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor together on the big screen for the first time in the movie ‘Besharam’.

The director said that idea to cast Rishi Kapoor as an elderly cop in the movie came to him while he was in talks with Ranbir Kapoor about the movie.

“I was on the lookout for an elderly famous actor to play the role of a cop. While I was interacting with Ranbir, I realized Rishi Kapoor had not played a cop in his 40-year career,” said Abhinav Kashyap to IANS.

“As another afterthought I thought why not have Neetu Singh play another pivotal role, which was already there in the script because then it will arouse people's curiosity,” he added.

The filmmaker is glad to have pulled off such a casting coup as the anticipation around the movie has only increased due to the three Kapoor’s.

“The very fact that you are asking me this question shows that yes, by design I tried to get all three of them together and I am glad they agreed," he said.

In ‘Besharam’ Ranbir Kapoor plays a con artist, while Rishi and Neetu Kapoor play cops who purse Ranbir Kapoor.

The movie stars Pallavi Sharda as the female lead.

The movie is all set to release on October 3 this year.
