Now, Rishi Kapoor says he wants to do a 'take-off' on his son in return.
In response to a fan who tweeted the very sequence from the Karan Johar film, terming it the 'best thing about Ae Dil Hai Mushkil,' Rishi Kapoor posted this:
Well that's my sons take off on me in ADHM. Soon I shall do a take off on him. Inch pinch! https://t.co/60OUvR571z? Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) October 30, 2016
The Cutiepies similarity with the Yash Chopra-made Chandni is no coincidence:
This is Ranbir Kapoor's second tribute piece for his father. Ranbir's 2008 film Bachna Ae Haseeno was named after a hit song featuring Rishi Kapoor from 1977's Hum Kisise Kum Naheen - a song that Ranbir reprised in his own film.
A few days ago, the elder Mr Kapoor had said that another upcoming film reminded him of Yash Chopra's classic romance. He called the Ranveer Singh-Vaani Kapoor film Befikre an updated adult version of Chandni after watching the trailer.
"Befikre". An outstanding hot trailer! Chandni ka 2016 updated "adult version". Exotic locale,natural actors, naughty,witty,funny, romantic!? Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) October 11, 2016
The Befikre team responded:
Meanwhile, Rishi Kapoor had better get cracking on that 'inch-pinch.'
