I hate you, I don’t want to watch this film: Raj Kapoor told Manoj Kumar

He said, "I remember a story, Manoj saab made this film Purab Aur Paschim, and he invited Raj saab for the trial of the film. In the beginning of the film, the British rule gets over, and the Indian flag goes up. As soon as the Indian flag goes up, the film changed into colour; it was black and white (before that). Raj saab got up, walked out, and Manoj saab ran after him, asking, ‘What’s wrong’. Raj saab said, ‘I hate you, I don’t want to watch this film. How could you think of this? I couldn’t think of this. Your film is a superhit, I’m not watching any more’.”

The actor added that earlier actors used to do two heroes films, but now actors are "insecure". “They don’t have the security to do solo films also, they take three years to decide what they want to do,” Ajay said.
