Take this quiz if Rishi Kapoor’s versatile acting through generations has always left you doe-eyed
Rishi Kapoor stepped into the world of cinema with his first cameo in Shree 420 and debut in Mera Naam Joker. His first leading role in Bobby not only earned him the Filmfare Award for Best Actor but also made him popular with the timeless song, ‘Hum tum ek kamre mein band ho aur chabi kho jayein’. He went on to star in movies like Kabhi Kabhi, Amar Akbar Anthony, Prem Rog, and the cult classic Karz. Rishi Kapoor’s movies have often been categorised as Bollywood classics, evergreen especially due to their blockbuster soundtracks consisting numbers like ‘Ek main aur ek tu’ to ‘Tu tu hai wahi’.
In the latter half of his career Kapoor redefined his aesthetic and ventured into eclectic roles such as that of DCP Ravikant Phogat in Aurangzeb and Rauf Lala in Agneepath (a role hailed by most critics). Be it a homosexual professor in Student Of The Year, or a middle-aged caring father in Do Dooni Chaar, Kapoor seamlessly brought to life myriad characters.
Kapoor passed away last year on April 30, after battling Leukemia. The schedule for Sharmaji Namkeen, one of his upcoming projects, was pending at the time. The remaining portions of the movie will be completed by Paresh Rawal.
