Ranbir Kapoor may have reached a superstar status, but that has not made him feel any less intimidated by his father Rishi Kapoor.

The 30-year actor, who had recently worked with his parents Rishi and Neetu Kapoor in "Besharam" for the first time, told IANS, "I don't fear anybody except my father."
"It's been 30 years, and even today main apne papa se aankhen milake nahi baat kar paata (I can't talk to him eye-to-eye). I'm quite scared of him."
On working with Rishi in the film, Ranbir revealed his apprehensions saying, "I thought how will I work with him and in this film. I have said things to him like - 'fat', 'dharti pe bojh' (burden on earth) and even abused him."
However, he also had a few words of praise for his star parents and their sense of professionalism.
"My parents are so professional that when we are working together, they never make me realise that main tere baap hoon (I'm your father). They have encouraged me a lot," he said.
"When they are on set they are something else. They never get their relationship on sets and don't take their characters back home."
"Besharam", directed By Abhinav Kashyap, has Rishi and Neetu Kapoor playing police constables who are trying to nab Ranbir. The young actor will be seen in a rowdy avatar.
Known for his humble demeanor and gullible attitude, Ranbir was the subject of praise when his mother recently expressed delight over her son's blooming career.
"I feel proud to see my son do such good work," said Neetu adding, "It's good, he should do different characters, it's also good as an actor. Sometimes he does "Rockstar" and then "Barfi!" and now "Besharam". So it's good for the actor."
