A star, who does not need any kind of preface, is none other than Mr. Rishi Kapoor or fondly called Chintu Ji in Bollywood!
From debuting as a child artist in 'Mera Naam Joker' (1970) to playing a fully romantic role in 'Bobby' (1973), to playing negative roles in 'Agneepath' remake, Rishi Kapoor has raised a bar in Bollywood showing his many shades and talent. Never in his wildest dreams would Rishi ji have thought that he would play Dawood’s role in a movie. Not only him, but none of his audiences would have ever imagined the same. But in the recently released film “D-Day”, he did play Dawood.
Born on 4th September, 1952, to a legendary Bollywood background like Mr.Raj Kapoor , Rishi Kapoor perhaps the most successful siblings in his time. Rishi Kapoor was an instant hit among the youth.
The boy, who marked his space with a hit like ‘Bobby’, possibly, was the 2nd most popular romantic hero after superstar Rajesh Khanna of those times. And interestingly still Rishi ji’s debut (Bobby) film’s song ‘Hum Tum Ek Kamre mein Band Ho’, is the biggest grosser of all time. No doubt he has a fantastic charm even at the point of his “Chintu Uncle” time. And over the years he has given us some truly classic romantic numbers in his films which we still love to humming.
Rishi Kapoor is Bollywood's living legend who is admired across the world and is loved immensely by other stars and his fans. We wish this versatile actor many more years of success and happiness! Btw Which is your favourite Rishi Kapoor film?
