Rishi Kapoor is known to be one of Bollywood’s most romantic heroes, popularizing teenage romance in particular, with his debut film Bobby. His charm, chocolate boy good looks and dance moves made him a winner among the ladies, and the best bet for romantic film directors. To celebrate his birthday, let’s take a look at five of his most romantic films!
Bobby was a hit among the youth – at that time, it was a fresh film that explored romance between two teenagers. It became a trend-setter in its own right, with several films after that using the same concept of class differences.
Rishi Kapoor, and his wife Neetu Singh, made one of the most popular on-screen couples back in the day, and Kabhie Kabhie was one such hit.
Karz was perhaps best known for its music, with Rishi Kapoor excelling in the song Om Shanti Om, which is popular even today.
Saagar is another film that used class differences as the backdrop, with Dimple Kapadia co-starring alongside Rishi Kapoor. This film also featured a love triangle, with Kamal Hassan playing Dimple’s best friend who falls in love with her.
Chandni remains one of the most successful films, featuring all your classic Yash Chopra elements – great music, great outfits and of course Switzerland as the backdrop.
Everyone at Team MissMalini wishes you a very happy birthday Rishi!
