Ranbir Kapoor's father Rishi Kapoor has yet again slammed directors Anurag Kashyap and Anurag Basu for the actor's previous flops – Bombay Velvet and Jagga Jasoos.

In an interview with Huffington Post, Rishi praised Ranbir's latest release Sanju but took sharp jibes at the two directors, who according to him were responsible for Ranbir's back-to-back flops.

"It was a pretty good film, unlike both Velvet or Jagga. They were bad films. They were indulgent. Even Sanjay Leela Bhansali made Saawariya. I mean his forte is something else and he made something else. Anurag Kashyap (Bombay Velvet)," Rishi said.

"You give him so much money, he literally didn't know what to do with it. Jagga Jasoos was such a bad film, such a bad story. It was absolutely rubbish. I questioned Ranbir and he said, 'Papa, the man who gave me Barfi, how could I question his...I thought he'd be responsible enough to know to keep the story at its point," he added.

Rishi praised Ranbir for the dedication he showed for the film Sanju. The actor underwent impressive physical transformations for the biopic on Sanjay Dutt.

"I mean everybody said ki what is Ranbir doing and again it's going to go down the drain and Ranbir is finished and this and that. They all said that. I said that it is his choice and he's an actor, he will go through these experiences. He'll learn from his mistakes. I mean I've seen that boy coming to the house and not eating, then working out and putting on weight for the bulked up Sanju and then losing it all for the lanky one. And that boy has worked really hard for the film. People are not really understanding the amount of labour that is gone as an actor in the film," the veteran actor said.

This is not the first time that Rishi made such unpleasant remarks on the two directors. Earlier too, he had criticised them for the same reason.
