“I am not because of my father” -Rishi Kapoor
It’s the year of loss for BOLLYWOOD. In two days, we lost two legends.

today yet another brilliant actor left us, Rishi Kapoor.
The actor, after fighting a long battle with his illness, has now left the world. The veteran actor who was 67, is no more amongst us today. Bollywood will
always feel a vacuum.
The news was given out by Amitabh Bachchan on Twitter, where he
wrote “Rishi Kapoor…gone…passed away. I am destroyed.”
Many other actors are paying their tribute to the legend.
The Evergreen Heartthrob passed away today after he was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday. Rishi Kapoor was an icon of love and maturity. He never missed a chance to stand up with the truth.
A gem of Bollywood, the veteran actor always stood out for his brilliant work. In this time of nostalgia, we bring to you the list of top ten movies of Rishi Kapoor.
List of Top 10 movies by Rishi Kapoor
That was the time of love, surely. When BOBBY was released, all the cinema houses were booked, roads were flooded with crowds and people stood in long lines for the tickets.
After all, it was a film starring Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia.
Rishi Kapoor who was Raj, an 18-year old lad, falls in love with Bobby (Dimple Kapadia), who was 16-year old. Raj is a Hindu boy and Bobby is Christian.
It’s a movie about how they fight for their love.
It is a movie all about love and revenge. It was the movie that gave Bollywood some of the best songs.
Ever heard the song “Ek haseena thi, ek deewana tha”? No that’s not it.
There are more evergreen songs that were from this movie.
“Dard-e-dill dard-e-jigar” and the most buzzed song, “meri umar ke naujawaano dill na lagaana”, these all belong to this movie. Rishi Kapoor was as excellent in dancing as he was in acting.

3. KAPOOR AND SONS
Well! This is a recent movie by Rishi Kapoor.

“Ye galiyan ye chaubara” is also the song of this movie that is much famous till now.
If you think that Rishi Kapoor was only an actor who played the roles of a handsome boy, then you are highly mistaken. He was someone who adapted in every kind of role.
In the movie “AGNEEPATH“, he played a negative role. And there will be no surprise if I tell you that he did it extremely flawlessly.
The acting was his passion, and so he never left it. Even during his old days, he acted for his fans, for the audience and himself.
6. LAILA MAJNU
The movie is no ordinary love story. A story of an accomplished love, starring Rishi Kapoor as Majnu, the movie was a big hit in the history of Indian cinema.
The actor is a complete imagination in this movie. It was indeed a marvellous performance by Rishi Kapoor.
He stood out of all the cast in his performance.
Rishi Kapoor was a versatile actor. He has acted out some of the best movies of Bollywood. And Henna is one of them.
An Indian boy, who gets amnesia after falling into a river. The river carries him to Pakistan. But tragedy happens, when he regains his memory.
The theme of the movie highlighted the relations between the two nations. And there is no doubt that the actor portrayed them very artistically.
8. AMAR AKBAR ANTHONY
The veteran actor played the role of Akbar in the movie. The three brothers- Amar, Akbar, and Anthony are brought up in three different religious families. When they grow up, they have an encounter by chance.
And then they three decide to take their revenge against the one who separated them. All three actors were fabulous in the movie.
And Rishi Kapoor also delivered an outstanding performance in the movie.

10. BOL RADHA BOL
It was a statement of a fan- “Only Rishi Kapoor could have done justice to this brilliant script.”
The movie is praiseworthy and so is the performance of the veteran actor. A boy who comes to the village to reopen his father’s factory falls in love with an ordinary village girl.
Rishi Kapoor, the name signified Romance and Love during those times.
The actor once said “An actor’s journey is never fulfilled. We always look for greener pastures, better roles, and better creativity. We all want to do good work.”
The Actor, despite having the most prestigious family background, established himself.
