Sarabhai Vs Sarabhai actor Rajesh Kumar talks about his resemblance to Rishi Kapoor. The actor talking about the same said, "Since my childhood. People would compare me with the Rishi Kapoor of Mera Naam Joker. With time, I am told, the resemblance only increased. I just acknowledge the fact and somewhere down the line, I feel happy that not only by personality but we're also in the same profession. I resemble Rishi Kapoor but also I wish I could be as good as an actor he is. He will always be a star who gave movies one after the other where his performance was amazing. Be it a comedy role, romance or the action he did, it was done with so much of conviction."

When asked did it prove to be a boon or a bane? He said, "Since the time I have known I have been carrying it with me. It never turned to be a bane, the resemblance with Rishi Kapoor is a boon."
