Rishi Kapoor in conversation with Sanjoy K Roy

Rishi Kapoor is one of India’s most popular film stars, who, over the years, has matured like fine wine into a powerful and gritty performer. All through the 1970s and 80s, Kapoor carved a niche for himself as a mellifluous romantic hero in a series of hits. Over the last decade, he has delivered some of the finest and nuanced performances of his career in a diverse array of roles, all far removed from his former chocolate-boy hero image. Known for his earthy, acerbic wit and punchy one-liners, it will be a delight to be in conversation with Rishi Kapoor.
