who often shares rare throwback pictures with his fans on social media, has now shared a picture of late uncle and superstar Shammi Kapoor along with a message for the new age filmmakers.
Sharing a black and white picture from the sets of Shammi’s 1966 film Teesri Manzil, Rishi pointed out how yesteryear directors such as Vijay Anand, who is seen in the picture, used to be present near the actor in front of the camera to give him cues. He talked about how today’s directors see an actor’s performance on a monitor, which is supposed to be a DOP’s (director of photography) tool.
Drawing a comparison between yesteryear directors and those of today, Rishi wrote in caption, “For today’s directors. This is where you should be seeing your actor perform In close proximity, not in front of a monitor. Fed up fighting with the new crop who are so happy to be playing with the new toy. That’s for the DOP.”
