New Delhi: Rishi Kapoor, who was last seen in ‘Student of the year’, is all set to surprise his fans by playing a hopeless romantic bachelor in David Dhawan`s upcoming flick `Chashme Baddoor`.

According to a daily, the 60-year-old actor will be seen as a retired sailor sporting tattoos and riding a Harley-Davidson bike in the movie. Kapoor wants to test his versatility as an actor and he is not looking forward to play any typical father roles.

Reportedly, Rishi Kapoor’s look in the movie is inspired by adult film actress Sunny Leone`s husband Daniel Weber, who dons a stubble and has tattoos inked all over.

"I told David that this is the look I want and he was okay with it. I wanted my character to appear loud and ostentatious and so got tattoos of a bikini-clad woman and anchor on my hand. I even learnt a bit of Konkani," he said.

The actor also admitted that playing a romantic role in this age was a challenge for him.

"It is something I was known for in my prime. Joseph Furtado, my character, is retired and lives in Goa where he discovers love. He falls for Josephine played by Lilette Dubey. The three guys, Ali Zafar, Siddharth and Divyendu, take advantage of the couple," he added.

‘Chashme Baddoor’ is slated to release on April 5.
