Mumbai, April 29 (IANS) Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor says he chose to do a cameo in Nandita Das’ film “Manto” just because he has “respect and admiration” for the actress-filmmaker.

“I have done one scene in Nandita Das’ film ‘Manto’ in a cameo. Just for the respect and admiration I have for her,” Rishi tweeted on Sunday.

The 65-year-old actor’s comments come after he said in an interview that working in “Manto” was a “wrong” call.

“Some mischief monger has tried to create a wedge between her and me. Absolutely untrue! I support the film and wish her all the best at Cannes Film Festival,” he tweeted.

“Manto” is a historical period drama film about the controversial writer Saadat Hasan Manto who is known for his writings around the partition of India and Pakistan.
