Raj Kapoor, the greatest showman Indian cinema had ever seen, breathed his last exactly 28 years ago.
The actor, producer and director will always be regarded as one of the greatest and most influential personas in the history of Indian cinema. He was the winner of several accolades including 3 National Film Awards and was a two-time nominee for the Palme d’Or grand prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
His performance in ‘Awaara’ was ranked as one of the top ten greatest performances of all time by Time magazine. He was honoured with the Padma Bhushan in 1971 and the Dadasaheb Phalke Award in 1987 for his contributions to the arts.
He left his legacy behind in the way of RK Films and the entire Kapoor Khandaan. On this day, we bring to you some exclusive images of the original showman of Bollywood!
