Whenever people heard the name Rishi Kapoor immediately there is a smile on people’s face and they started singing one of the many great songs from his films. He entertained us for many decades with his exceptional acting and his brilliant dancing. Among all the big actors he probably became the first actor whose film’s music and dancing captured heart of millions.
But sadly as truly said, all good things must come to an end, he also left the world earlier than any of us thought. Even after so many films he was still doing something new every time you see him. He has done very versatile roles from a comic role in amar akbar anthony to serious roles in mulk.
Summing up his career in 10 movies is pretty tough. Out of all the brilliant roles that he’s done here are the 10 films that you need to watch right now (in no particular order)-
