Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor, famed for his romantic roles, died of cancer aged 67. Kapoor was diagnosed with leukemia in 2018 and returned to India last September after a year-long course of treatment in New York. He was part of the Kapoor acting dynasty which has long dominated Bollywood, the Hindi film industry. The actor made a huge splash in 1973 with his first lead role in Bobby - a teenage love story.

He played the romantic lead in dozens of films for over two decades, after which he made a successful transition to character roles.

Rishi Kapoor debuted as a child actor in 1970 in his father Raj Kapoor’s film, Mera Naam Joker.

Several of his films in the 1980s and 90s - Khel Khel Mein, Karz and Chandni - became massive box office hits.

He was a skilful dancer and some of his films had songs that are massively popular even today.

Kapoor made a successful on-screen pair with actress Neetu Singh. In one of Bollywood’s most enduring love stories, they took that romance off-screen as well when they got married in 1980.

Their son, Ranbir Kapoor, is a successful Bollywood star in his own right.

One generation of the Kapoor family was born in the city of Peshawar in Pakistan. The family migrated to India after the partition in 1947.
