Bollywood loses another gem today. Film stars mourn over K.V.Anand’s demise who breathed his last this early morning!

Bollywood loses another gem on Rishi Kapoor’s death anniversary. The evergreen, Rishi Kapoor passed away on April 30, 2020. On Rishi Kapoor’s first death anniversary today, we look back at how the legendary veteran actor took a U-turn in his career to embrace character roles. His roles in films like Mulk, Agneepath, 102 Not Out and Do Dooni Chaar made a huge impact on his audience.

Bollywood is yet to find a replacement for Rishi’s charm. Rishi Kapoor made his acting debut in Mera Naam Joker (1970) at the age of 15. He also became an overnight sensation with Bobby (1973).

Rishi Kapoor’s chocolate-boy looks and his romantic image was highly appealing initially at the prime time of his career. The real transition happened towards author-backed roles during his second innings, and he virtually got an image from the audience that was missing for all these years.


He was great hitting at the box office with his filmography comprising of generes like Khel Khel Mein, Prem Rog, Damini, Amar Akhbar Antony, Doosra Aadmi and much more.

In the early 2000s, he played father roles in films with cameo appearances like Yeh Hai Jalwa, Hum Tum, Fanaa and Namastey London. Love Aaj Kal and Do Dooni Chaar probably turned the tables for him. His performance in 102 Not Out was highly appreciated. Here he reunited with Big-B in the film. This was a perfect act where he had fewer dialogues but his body language and expressions were scene stealers.

Rishi Kapoor had said, “I have a hefty price tag as a character actor too, but filmmakers have been more than willing to pay it. In return, they get a very sincere actor who is professional and gives them what they want before the camera.”

From films like Housefull 2 to Bewakoofiyaan, where he played supporting characters, he was a force to reckon in Bollywood. We all dwell into the magic he rolled out onscreen in his later phase. Rishi Kapoor and his characters will remain forever etched in our minds and hearts.

Rishi Kapoor breathed his last on April 30, 2020. He died in hospital after a two-year battle with leukaemia. He died at the age of 67. This news took the internet by storm since a day before on April 29, 2020, the industry also had lost another marvellous gem ‘Irrfan Khan’.
