We are fortunate to see the magic of cinema spelled by Rishi Kapoor who set the silver screen on fire with his impeccable acting skills right from Raj Kapoor’s Mera Naam Joker (1970) till the Spanish thriller remake, The Body (2019).

Let us reminisce the filmography of the extremely talented actor in his career which spanned for 50 years.

Hailing from a family of films, Rishi Kapoor already had high expectations from Kapoor khandaan and especially from his father Raj Kapoor and grandfather, Prithviraj Kapoor. Though Rishi Kapoor always had an advantage of being a star kid but at the same time he had to deal with pressure of matching up to his family’s acting caliber. Rishi Kapoor started off his journey into the film world with  Mera Naam Joker for which he received the National Film Award for Best Child Artist in 1970, directed by Raj Kapoor. Rishi Kapoor debuted as a lead actor with 1973 film Bobbyopposite Dimple Kapadia. The romance drama became one of biggest hit of the decade, turning Rishi Kapoor into a star overnight.

Though Rishi Kapoor tried his hand in direction with a film, Aa Ab Laut Chalen, starring Rajesh KhannaAishwarya Rai and Akshaye Khanna in the lead roles, the film could not do well at the box office when it was released in 1999. 2000 started off well when Rishi Kapoor begin his second innings as a supporting actor in films like Yeh Hai Jalwa (2002), Hum Tum (2004), Fanaa (2006), Namastey London (2007), Love Aaj Kal (2009) and Patiala House (2010).

Rishi Kapoor saw big turn around when he started experimenting with different genre of cinema.  He re-united with his wife, Neetu Kapoor in the  Habib Faisal directed Do Dooni Chaar (2010) where he played a middle-class school teacher who dreams of buying a car one day. Rishi Kapoor was appreciated for adding natural charisma to the character of a school while Do Dooni Chaar went on to win a National Award for Best Feature Film.

Rishi Kapoor donned a villain role for the first time with the Agneepath remake in 2012, directed by Karan Malhotra. Rishi Kapoor nailed the villainous, wicked, dark and evil character with aplomb. He was applauded for his brutal performance as Rauf Lala. 2013 saw again a different version of Rishi Kapoor with diverse roles in Shuddh Desi RomanceD-DayAurangzebChashme Baddoor and Besharam where he shared the screen for the first time with his son, Ranbir Kapoor.
Rishi Kapoor was the soul of film called Kapoor & Sons . The veteran actor was magnificent and gave an electrifying performance as Amarjeet Kapoor. He proved that he was getting better with each film. This was probably his best performance of his career. Rishi Kapoor re-united with Amitabh Bachchan with 102 Not Out , which was directed by Umesh Shukla. The comedy-drama was a runaway hit film of the year 2018 followed by the hard-hitting, Mulk.
He was diagnosed with bone-marrow cancer for which he had to travel to New York for treatment. But films being his passion, Rishi Kapoor continued to wrap up the shooting of Jhootha Kahin Ka (2019) and The Body (2019), which was the last film of his career.
