There’s an odd romantic prevalence in Rishi Kapoor’s profession peculiar to him alone. 3 times he has performed a younger man who falls in love with a a lot older girl. It was just like the ‘Mrs Robinson’ romance occurring thrice over for the younger actor. Every time he made the liaison look particular.
1. Mera Naam Joker: Rishi was 14 when he performed the youthful avatar of his father Raj Kapoor who has an enormous crush on his English trainer. Younger Raju brings Simi Garewal freshly plucked flowers. He sighs and swoons every time she passes by. And he has his first…errr….sexual awakening when she accidently falls into the water and exposes her moist thighs to the little boy. This was not solely Raju’s first go to to Thigh Land, it was Rishi Kapoor’s first romantic involvement on display screen. And he regarded so love caught as a result of he had a teeny-weeny real-life crush on Ms Garewal. However shhhhh! You didn’t hear this from me.
2. Doosra Aadmi: In 1977 when Rishi Kapoor was 25 he was paired with Raakhee Gulzar in director Ramesh Talwar’s age-challenged romance. In fact this couple couldn’t go all the way in which, though they promised one another ‘Chal Kahin Dur Nikal Jayen’. However earlier than they may journey into an unconventional man-young-woman-older alliance, there was a catch. Rishi reminded his ravishing romantic curiosity of her lifeless husband performed by Shashi Kapoor. Only a yr earlier than Doosra Aadmi, Shashi Kapoor had performed Raakhee’s husband in Kabhi Kabhie and Rishi was her son. She admitted enjoying a romantic couple in Doosra Aadmi was not a cheerful event however each the actors managed to beat their preliminary awkwardness. Rishi may romance anybody efficiently.
3. Ek Chadar Maili Si: Litterateur Rajinder Singh Bedi’s novel a couple of Punjabi ritual whereby a widow is compelled to marry her brother-in-law was purported to be portrayed on display screen by Geeta and Dharmendra. Lastly in 1986 it went into the palms of Hema Malini and Rishi Kapoor who was ten years her junior, each on and off display screen. Hema says there was no awkwardness between them. And if there was, then it served the screenplay’s objective. However what about Rishi who needed to look and act like a drunken so and so leching for his Bhabhi? Not for a second did he slip up on his efficiency. This man may play something. And every part. And with anybody.
