Rishi Kapoor’s Journey In Cinema
Rishi Kapoor made his debut in as a child artiste in Mera Naam Joker (1970) for which he managed to grab the National Film Award for the portrayal. As an adult protagonist, his first film was Bobby in 1973, which in fact was a little controversial for its time. Rishi Kapoor entertained audiences for almost 4 decades and was last seen in ‘102 Not Out’ alongside his best friend and megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
After winning millions of hearts in Bobby, Rishi Kapoor went on to become famous as the eternal lover of Hindi cinema.
Even though Bollywood’s beloved Rishi ji has left us, leaving a void in the entertainment world that won’t ever be filled, he will forever be alive in the hearts of his admirers. We may not see his smiling face again, but his love for life, food, and acting will continue to inspire us.
