Shraddha used to shout at dad Shakti Kapoor over his villain roles

Shraddha Kapoor'I loved him in comic roles. In real life he is very funny,' says Shraddha

Aashiqui 2's Shraddha Kapoor, daughter of actor Shakti Kapoor, says she did not like her father playing a villain in films.

Shakti Kapoor played negative roles in films like Rocky, Qurbani, Himmatwala, Hero and others and established himself as one of the most sought-after villains in Bollywood.

"I used to shout at him for doing villain roles. I used to be sad about it (playing villain). But then my mother explained he is just acting," Shraddha said in an interview.

In the nineties, Shakti ventured into comic roles in films like Raja Babu, Insaaf, Baap Numbri Beta Dus Numbri, Andaz Apna Apna, Chaalbaaz and others.

"I loved him in comic roles. In real life he is very funny," Shraddha said.

Shraddha, whose aunt is actress Padmini Kolhapure, says filmi talks dominate the house.

"Our conversation most of the time is about films. We discuss what films to watch...the good performances and all," she said.

Shraddha entered filmdom with Teen Patti (2010) alongside Amitabh Bachchan, R Madhavan and others, which did not fare well at the box office. Her next release Luv Ka The End (2011) of Y-Films, a subsidiary of Yash Raj Films, did average business.

"My father and aunt Padmini Kolhapure advise me a lot. He (Shakti Kapoor) has interesting point of view," she said. Shraddha is very close to her father though he is strict while her mother Shivangi is her best friend.

"My dad is a bit strict but protective. But I share a great comfort level with my parents and I can tell them anything - like if I have a crush on someone or somebody likes me, I can tell them," she added.

Shraddha will be seen next in Mukesh Bhatt's Aashiqui 2 opposite Aditya Roy Kapur. The promos of the film are out and her parents are quite excited about it.
