Blessed with a chocolate face and terrific dancing skills, Rishi Kapoor created his own space in the film industry. He was soon recognised as a versatile actor who excelled not only in passionate and emotional films but was equally comfortable in comic roles with a brilliant sense of timing. He stood his own ground with stalwarts like Amitabh Bachchan and Vinod Khanna in the all-time hit ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’. Rishi’s first heroine Dimple married Rajesh Khanna before ‘Bobby’s release and Rishi needed a young actress to be paired opposite him. Neetu Singh fit the slot and soon both became a hit pair and shared a wonderful chemistry on screen. The reel-life romance gradually turned into a real romance and both tied the knot in 1980. Did Rishi’s career take a dip after marriage ? And how did the transition from a hero to a character actor happen ? Was he equally successful in his 2nd innings ? Watch SCREEN LEGENDS Rishi Kapoor Part 2 to know the answers along with several other interesting incidents from his glorious career.
