In his life story Khullam Khulla, the late Rishi Kapoor credits more youthful sibling Rajiv Kapoor just like the most capable of the three siblings. Rishi uncovers Rajiv was a melodic virtuoso, as he was expertly ready to play the piano while never having learnt it officially. He additionally credits Rajiv making an honorable showing as a supervisor on Aa Ab Laut Chalen (1999) which was coordinated by Rishi and delivered by Rajiv. Rishi mourns that his more youthful sibling just couldn’t put forth a concentrated effort to any field, else he would have gotten the main in anything he picked. Rishi Kapoor additionally uncovered that their dad Raj Kapoor cherished Rajiv, or Chimpu as he was tenderly known, the most. He even proceeds to say that while their dad made Bobby for him, it was Dimple Kapadia’s film as far as possible while Ram Teri Ganga Maili was made only to feature Rajiv.
In case that was Raj Kapoor’s goal, it absolutely didn’t pay off. One can say the choice boomeranged, as every one of the watchers detracted from the film was the cascade scene highlighting the inadequately clad Mandakini. The diverse film, which discussed class partition just as tidying up the Ganges is just recollected today due to its skin show.
Rajiv Kapoor was brought into the world on August 25, 1962. He was the most youthful of Raj Kapoor’s kids. Like the remainder of the Kapoors, he also was unquestionably attractive and in that capacity, was relied upon to follow his siblings into films. He used to resemble a youthful Shammi Kapoor when he was in his 20s and all things considered, his jobs, films and surprisingly his peculiarities were shaped on his uncle. In a later meeting, Rajiv regretted about the choice. He felt that he ought to have been his own man from the beginning and not let himself be formed as another Shammi Kapoor. He was persuaded things would have turned out diversely then, at that point. Dissimilar to his senior siblings Randhir Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor, he wasn’t dispatched by his father.His debut movie Ek Jaan Hain Hum was created by FC Mehra and coordinated by Rajiv Mehra. It presented Rajiv and Divya Rana and is likewise supposed to be Anu Malik’s first huge film. Melodies like Dil lagana tum kya – where his dance steps were suggestive of Shammi Kapoor’s means from Teesri Manzil (1966) – Yaad teri aayegi, dil hai, and Aasman pe likh doon were hits and for some time it seemed like another melodic star had unfolded notwithstanding the film’s less than impressive run in the cinematic world.
However, it wasn’t to be. Smash Teri Ganga Maili was a celebration hit okay yet a while later, Rajiv’s movies like Zabardast (1985), Lover Boy (1985), Preeti (1986), Zalzala (1988), Hum To Chale Pardes (1988) all slumped. Raj Kapoor might have restored his child’s profession however after his awkward demise in 1988, the zing for acting apparently left Rajiv. He took a shot at different things – he coordinated and altered Prem Granth (1996) – a revising of Thomas Hardy’s Tess Of The d’Urbervilles and delivered Aa Ab Laut Chalen (1999). Lamentably, the two movies floundered. The last was the last film delivered under the famous RK flag.
