Raj Kapoor’s name  is synonymous with Bollywood.

He had a child like quality that tugged at one’s heart. He reached dizzying heights in the 50s  and upwards and was seen in classics like Barsaat, Awaara, Mera Naam Joker, Anari and Shree 420.


Awaara (1951) had many Kapoor elements. While Raj Kapoor directed, produced and acted in it, it also starred his grandfather Dewan Bashwanath Kapoor, his father Prithviraj Kapoor, his younger brother Shashi Kapoor and his lady love Nargis. It was a poor boy falls in love with a rich girl story.


Mera Naam Joker (1970) was a poignant story about a clown Raju who wears his heart on his sleeve, only to have it broken.


Kapoor passed away while making the movie Henna in 1988. The movie was completed by his son Randhir Kapoor and released in 1991.


His story was carried forward by his sons Rishi Kapoor, Randhir Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor.
