marks the 68th
birthday of the evergreen legend of Indian cinema, Randhir Kapoor a.k.a Daboo
! On this festive occasion, BollyCurry takes pleasure in showing you a glimpse of Daboo
's journey in Bollywood.
Kapoor was born in 1947 to the renowned actor, director and producer Raj
Kapoor, and Krishna Kapoor in Mumbai. The actor-producer-director first faced
the camera at a tender age as a child artist in the mid-1950s. However, it was not until 1971 when
Kapoor graced the silver screen as a lead in Kal Aaj Aur Kal,
which also marked his debut movie as a director. The film managed to
accumulate average collections at the box office. In the same
year, Kapoor married his ladylove and co-actor Babita Kapoor. The duo has two
beautifully famed daughters, Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor Khan.
Kapoor excelled in Indian cinema as an
actor from his debut in 1971 to the 1980s. Some of his praiseworthy
performances include Raampur Ka Lakshman (1972),
Jawani Diwani (1972), Ponga Pandit (1975), Kasme Vaade (1978), Sawaal (1982) and Pukar (1983). He then decided to take a break from acting to focus on
production and direction. The talented actor donned the producer's hat in 1991
with the release of Henna starring
his brother Rishi Kapoor, Ashwini Bhave and Zeba Bakhtiyar. Henna was his father's last incomplete film
before he passed away. After producing Prem
Granth (1996) and Aa Ab Laut Chalen (1999),
Kapoor returned from his acting hiatus doing secondary roles in Armaan (2003), Housefull (2010), Action Replayy (2010), Housefull 2 (2012), Ramaiya Vastavaiya (2013) and more recently, Super Nani (2014).
To honour Daboo's work in Indian cinema, we
have compiled a list of some of his celebrated songs:
"Gum Hai Kisi Ke Pyar Mein" - Raampur Ka Lakshman
"Gori Ho Kali Ho" - Biwi O
"Aap Ki Qasam Ek Din Sanam" - Lafange
"Peene Wale Ko Peene Ka" - Haath Ki Safai
"Yeh Rut Hai Haseen" - Harjaee
"Janejan Dhundhta" - Jawani Diwani
"Aap Yaha Aaye Kisliye" - Kal Aaj Aur Kal
"Bachke Rehna Re Baba" - Pukar
"Kisisi Dosti Karlo" - Dil Diwana
"Nahi Nahi Abhi" - Jawani Diwani
BollyCurry wishes the veteran actor a very happy 68th birthday and a prosperous year ahead! We hope that we get to watch Kapoor on the big
screen for many years to come.
