Rishi Kapoor, most known for his wit and candour, is all set to release his autobiography that has a rather fitting title, 'Khullam Khulla — Rishi Kapoor Uncensored' (HarperCollins). "I'll probably be the first Kapoor to write an autobiography," he says.

In the book, the star will open up about his journey in cinema, which spans four and a half decades and around 150 movies. "By God's grace, I've had a very celebrated life. Thanks to my father, I became a celebrity when I was two years old. I have lived with a family full of celebrities. This book is an honest and truthful recollection of my life with them," he says.

"It's funny, motivating, inspiring and might even give you a lump in your throat. Don't expect sensationalism, because I haven't really had a sensational life," he adds. He hopes to launch it at a literary festival in Chennai on January 16.

Film journalist Meena Iyer is reported to be co-writing the autobiography of the 64-year-old actor.

As per an insider, along with the story narration, there is going to a one and a half hour gig where the acting doyen will regale audiences with funny, bitter and sweet instances of his life. The actor was last seen in Karan Johar's 'Kapoor and Sons Since 1921' along with Alia Bhatt, Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan.
