Mumbai: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor got to play a police officer in upcoming film `Besharam` after his son Ranbir Kapoor suggested his name to director Abhinav Kashyap.

When Abhinav said that they had to cast a senior actor to play a police officer, it was Ranbir who suggested his father`s name.

"I am excited to have all three of them in my film. I didn`t know that Rishiji had never played a policeman in his entire career. I was so excited to have Rishiji and Neetuji play police personnel for the first time," Abhinav said in a statement here.
The film stars Rishi Kapoor as Inspector Chulbul, a name that became popular after Salman Khan etched it in `Dabangg`.

It is for the first time that the Kapoor family - Ranbir and his parents Rishi and Neetu - have come together for film `Besharam`.

Releasing on October 2, the film introduces newbie Pallavi Sharda.
