MUMBAI -- Rishi Kapoor is too strict a father and even when it comes to praising the work of his actor son Ranbir the veteran Bollywood star prefers being "critical" and "harsh" on him.

The 63-year-old All Is Well actor said till now he has found his son significantly decent in Barfi (2012) and Rocket Singh: Salesman of the Year (2009).

"Generally I don't like him as I am too critical and harsh but he was decent in Barfi and Rocket Singh," Rishi said, when asked about the best movie of his son, during a Q&A session with fans on Twitter.

The actor, who earned a lot of praise for his portrayal of Ravi Verma in 1980 thriller Karz directed by Subhash Ghai, does not considers the film as one his best performances.

"Karz was no great work. Just stylized. Ghai's best. Great music and Joie de vivre! Simi and Tina were to die for!," he tweeted.

Rishi, son of Bollywood legend Raj Kapoor, also recalled his childhood days when yesteryear gems Madhubala and Meena Kumari visited their house on Diwali, but regretted that he did not realize their importance during those days.

"When I was very young they often visited our house for Diwali etc... How unfortunate I was not realising their worth," he wrote.

The actor will next be seen in Indian comedy romantic drama film Kapoor & Sons directed by Shakun Batra.
