Happy Birthday Rishi Kapoor!

Who can forget the cute, chubby guy of ‘Mera Naam Joker', a character that fantasizes his teacher, played by Simi Garewal? Rishi Kapoor entered the world of glamour with his father’s movie and then in no time became a household name with his stellar acting skills and charm. With movies like Prem Rog, Bobby, Nagina, Chandani, Bol Radha Bol, the actress rooted his presence in Bollywood and made sure every director wants to work with him. He played with every genre, but his romantic aura became the most popular as people recognised him as the original chocolate boy of Bollywood. Other than his prowess as an actor, Rishi Kapoor is known for his no nonsense attitude and for putting forth his thoughts on every issue. He has never shied away from speaking his mind out and his debut book and memoir Khullam Khulla is proof of it.
 
On the actor’s 66th birthday, let’s have a look at 5 Khullam Khulla confessions that Rishi Kapoor made about his own life and his closed ones.
 

1. Father Raj Kapoor’s extra-marital affairs

 
Rishi Kapoor opened up about his father Raj Kapoor’s extra marital affairs and said that he was involved with Bollywood actresses Nargis and Vyjayanthimala which forced his mother to stay away from him. She came back only when Raj Kapoor closed that chapter of his life.

2. His spat with Amitabh Bachchan

In his book, Rishi Kapoor talked about how Amitabh Bachchan got credit for all his roles even when the secondary characters in his movie were equally brilliant. Rishi Kapoor says that the roles were written keeping in mind Amitabh Bachachan in those days. Rishi writes, "To go back to Amitabh, I must confess here is still a lingering issue I have with Amitabh Bachchan. A big disadvantage of working in an all-star movie in those days was that everybody only wanted to make action films, which automatically meant that the star who could carry off action with the most flair would get the meatiest part.”
 

3. In depression, he blames wife Neetu Kapoor for his failures

 
Rishi Kapoor spilled the beans about his own setbacks as well. He said, “Neetu was pregnant with Riddhima and had to endure my breakdown in that fragile condition. I finally came through it with the help of supportive colleagues, family and friends, but I can only imagine how agonizing the experience must have been for her.”

4. On being madly in love

 
Rishi Kapoor confesses that he was madly in love but not with Neetu. The actor revealed that his first steady and serious girlfriend was a Parsi girl, Yasmin Mehta, whom he dated much before Bobby was out. She even presented Rishi with a ring that he used to wear on the sets of Bobby.
 

5. Rishi Kapoor admits to buying a film award

 
Rishi Kapoor writes, "I think that Amitabh was sulking because I had won the best actor award for Bobby. I am sure he felt the award was rightfully his for Zanjeer, which released the same year. I am ashamed to say it, but I actually ‘bought’ that award. I was so naïve. There was this PRO, Taraknath Gandhi, who said to me, ‘Sir, tees hazaar de do, toh aap ko main award dila doonga.’ I am not the manipulative sort but I admit that I gave him the money without thinking.”
