Starmark, in association with HarperCollins hosted a book-signing session with Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor. The actor was in the city for the promotion of his autobiography Khullam Khulla whch he has himself penned down.
The book showcases the life of the actor from his first sting in acting with Mera Naam Joker in 1970 to the naughty ninety-year-old in Kapoor and Sons in 2016. Rishi Kapoor has regaled audiences for close to fifty years. He won a National Award for his debut, became an overnight sensation and carved a niche for himself with a string of romantic musical blockbusters in an era known for its angry young man films. Then there was the second coming after a brief hiatus in the 1990s – as one of the finest actors in mainstream Hindi cinema with powerhouse performances in films like Do Dooni Chaar, D-Day, Agneepath and others.
The book showcases about his growing up in the shadow of a legendary father, skipping school to act in Mera Naam Joker, the workings of the musical hits of the era, his streak of rotten luck with awards, an encounter with Dawood Ibrahim, his heroines (their working relationship, the gossip and the frisson that was sometimes real), his approach to his craft, his tryst with clinical depression, and more. A heart-warming afterword by Neetu Singh rounds off the biography aptly.
The book, published by HarperCollins, is priced at Rs 599/- and is available at all the Starmark outlets.
