    Rishi Kapoor celebrated the 95th birth anniversary of his late actor father Raj Kapoor in a very special way on Saturday. The Mulk actor went back the memory lane and dug out a priceless black and white throwback picture of his dad Raj Kapoor.

    The photo, which features Raj Kapoor posing with a doll, is a still from his 1970 film “Mera Naam Joker”, which also starred Rishi Kapoor as a child artiste.

    For those who don’t know, Rishi Kapoor made his debut in the film industry as a child artiste in Mera Naam Joker, for which he even won the National Film Award but more on that later.

    Wishing his father on social media, Rishi Kapoor shared the picture saying:

    Raj Kapoor was an Indian film actor, producer and director of Indian cinema. Born at Kapoor Haveli in Peshawar to actor Prithviraj Kapoor, he was a member of the Kapoor family which has produced several Bollywood superstars.

    He received multiple awards, including 3 National Film Awards and 11 Filmfare Awards in India.

    The Filmfare Lifetime Achievement Award is named after Raj Kapoor. He was a two-time nominee for the Palme d’Or grand prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his films Awaara (1951) and Boot Polish (1954).

     His performance in Awaara was ranked as one of the top ten greatest performances of all time by Time magazine. His films attracted worldwide audiences, particularly in Asia and Europe. He was called “the Clark Gable of the Indian film industry”.

    The Government of India honoured him with the Padma Bhushan in 1971 for his contributions to the arts. India’s highest award in cinema, the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, was bestowed on him in 1987 by the Government of India.
