Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has become a leading face of character driven roles that have negative shades, the latest being his portrayal in the upcoming film 'Kaanchi'.

It started with the menacing Rauf Lala in 'Agneepath', led to the role of a gangster in 'D-Day' and now he plays the role of a flamboyant business tycoon who is the villain in filmmaker Subhash Ghai's next film, 'Kaanchi'.

Subhash Ghai and Rishi Kapoor have come together after a span of 32 years. Their first film together was 'Karz'. Even though the film did not do well at the box office, it's now considered a cult film.

'Kaanchi' will see Rishi Kapoor play a business man who likes the 3 Gs - Girls, Guns, Guitar.

Said Ghai, "We are having so much fun on the sets shooting with Rishi Kapoor and it is a pleasure to work with one of the best actors in the industry. I am sure the audience is going to love his look and character in the film."

The film stars Kartik Aryan and newcomer Mishti. It is scheduled to release on December 6.
