Rishi Kapoor's autobiography reveals why he almost rejected Kabhi Kabhie

Rishi Kapoor’s film Kabhi Kabhie was a huge hit at the box office. The veteran actor revealed in his autobiography that he almost rejected the movie as his wife Neetu Kapoor had a more prominent role in the movie. He also revealed that he told Yash Chopra that if he wanted him in the movie, he should give him the role of Neetu Kapoor. Rishi Kapoor also said that this confused Yash Chopra and he agreed to work in the film after his uncle Shashi Kapoor intervened.

Our dear Rishi Kapoor passed away peacefully at 8:45 am IST in hospital today after a two-year battle with leukaemia. The doctors and medical staff at the hospital said he kept them entertained to the last.
He remained jovial and determined to live to the fullest right through two years of treatment across two continents. Family, friends, food and films remained his focus and everyone who met him during this time was amazed at how he did not let his illness get the better of him.
He was grateful for the love of his fans that poured in from the world over. In his passing, they would all understand that he would like to be remembered with a smile and not with tears.
In this hour of personal loss, we also recognise the world is going through a very difficult and troubled time. There are numerous restrictions around movement and gathering in public. We would like to request all his fans and well-wishers and friends of the family to please respect the laws that are in force.
He would not have it any other way.
