Remembering Rishi Kapoor : When Bobby was Telecasted on Doordarshan


In the past year, where the entire country was facing the corona epidemic, the film industry was also in the sorrow of losing many of its heavyweights. The demise of several artists once upon a time shook everyone. Bollywood lost two of its veteran actors in just 24 hours. While the death of actor Irrfan Khan surprised everyone on 29 April, Rishi Kapoor’s death on 30 April 2020 was a big shock for everyone.

Today it has been a full year for Rishi Kapoor’s death. After fighting a battle with cancer for almost 2 years, he finally breathed his last in a hospital in Mumbai on 30 April. Today, even though he is not among us, his fans and his family still miss him a lot. After Rishi Kapoor’s departure, the most talked about romance in his films is being made.

An interesting story about his romantic film is done by historian Ramchandra Guha in his book ‘India After Gandhi’. Let’s talk about that …

Actually, historian Ramchandra Guha has written a book about the life of the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. The name of this book is ‘India after Gandhi’. Ramchandra Guha in his story tells the story of Rishi Kapoor’s Batura lead actor film ‘Bobby’ and Indira Gandhi, which is very relevant in the current era. This is talked about during the Emergency in the country. Yes, there was no corona virus at that time, but due to some political reasons, people were forced to be imprisoned in their homes.

In the same way, ‘Ramayana’ and ‘Mahabharata’ have been started once again for the purpose of keeping people busy and entertained during the corona virus lockdown. Similarly, former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in a very shocking manner at that time had telecasted Rishi Kapoor’s film ‘Bobby’ on Doordarshan. She did this because she wanted to stop a crowd of people at one of her rival leader’s rallies.
