The ‘Charlie Chaplin of Indian Cinema’, Raj Kapoor, set a trend in Bollywood with milestone movies like Sangam, Shree 420, Awara and Teesri Kasam. Also named as the ‘Showman of the Millenium’, he lived only in the world of films and was loved not only by the Indian audiences but also enjoyed a gigantic fan base in other countries as well. For his contributions to the Hindi film industry, he was awarded the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1987 and Padma Bhushan in 1971. Sadly, he is not among us today. He might have left the world years back but his legacy will continue. Sunday marked the legendary actor-filmmaker’s 31st death anniversary and son Rishi Kapoor penned a sweet note for his late father.
Taking to Twitter early in the morning, Rishi shared two pictures. One is a still of Raj Kapoor from his film Mera Naam Joker and another is a grey scale extremely old image of the father-son duo that sees the late actor planting a sweet kiss on the junior Kapoor’s cheek. “…Par hum tumhare rahenge sada,” wrote Rishi in Hindi.
Take a look at Rishi Kapoor’s tweet for Raj Kapoor here:
The 102 Not Out actor is currently undergoing treatment for cancer in New York. Of late, we have been seeing multiple celebrities from Bollywood dropping in to see him. After Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal, Aamir Khan, Karan Johar, ace designer Manish Malhotra visited the actor recently.
“My eighth month of treatment started on May 1 in the US. But God has been kind! I am in remission, meaning now I am cancer-free. I will have to do a bone-marrow transplant which in all probability should take another two months minimum. Being in remission is a big thing and it’s all because of my family and my fans prayers and duas that have worked. I thank them all,” he earlier told Deccan Chronicle. We hope he comes back hale and hearty soon!Read More
