Showman of the Millenium Raj Kapoor’s biography to hit the stands on 14th December

Raj Kapoor’s biography by bollywood film director and editor, Rahul Rawail is announced to release on actor’s birth anniversary i.e. December 14.

Raj Kapoor is appreciated both by film critics and movies fans. Film historians and movie buffs speak of him as the “Charlie Chaplin of Indian cinema,” since he often portrayed a tramp-like figure, who, despite adversity, was still cheerful and honest.


The book titled Raj Kapoor-The Immortal Master at Work will look at the life of Kapoor as a filmmaker. The book will give an insight into what went behind Kapoor becoming an exceptional filmmaker of human emotions.

Rawail began to work on the biography way back, even before the demise of Rishi Kapoor.

Talking to a leading daily, Rawail mentioned that the idea of writing a biography was first suggested by Apurva Asrani when they were on the panel of Indian Panorama, they discussed this idea. Later, when Rawail spoke to Rishi Kapoor, he insisted that he must write the book. He had also discussed the idea with Randhir Kapoor and Krishna Kapoor.

Rawail has written about his days in the RK Studios where he observed and uncovered the techniques of filmmaking. He has also tapped into the quirky sense of humour of Raj Kapoor.
