Mumbai: Bollywood’s ‘evergreen lover boy’ Rishi Kapoor, who recently made a silver screen comeback with family film ‘Do Dooni Chaar’, is back in business.

The veteran actor is working with Hrithik Roshan for the first time ever in Karan Johar’s ‘Agneepath’ remake. And he has captivated his younger co-actor so much so that the ‘Guzaarish’ actor is all praise for senior RK.

Rishi, who played Akshay Kumar’s father in ‘Patiala House’ recently, is shooting a breathtaking action sequences for KJo’s film. And presently the 1970s-80s superstar met with an accident while shooting on of the sequences.

Narrating the incident, a source from the unti said, "In one scene, Kapoor gets punched by a junior artiste. He fell, landing heavily on his back. He was obviously hurt. HR and director Karan Malhotra rushed to his side to make sure he was fine. Hrithik even insisted on calling a doctor."

But Kapoor, despite his bloating body size continued to shoot.

On seeing the dedication and commitment level of his senior co-star, a much younger Roshan told Kapoor, "Hats off to you, Chintu uncle! I could never have managed what you did today.”

Expressing his admiration for Rishi Kapoor, Hrithik said, "Chintu uncle has always been a source of inspiration for me. And he continues to inspire. I was amazed at his level of strength and fitness while shooting the action sequence. He took some bad falls and was bruised and scarred at the end of the day`s shoot but just kept going!”
