At that time RK did not even know the ‘Kakhg’ of the film industry. He had seen father Prithviraj Kapoor making films, so he also wanted to be a part of the film world. Seeing his father talking about films since childhood, the desire to become a hero also arose in his mind.

Legend Raj Kapoor has given Hindi cinema a golden period of films. Star Raj Kapoor, who is fondly called ‘Papaji’ in the industry, has also struggled a lot in his life. Since being a big star, people could not open their mouth in front of him. But being Prithviraj’s son Raj Kapoor, he also had his own status. Despite this, the actor struggled a lot to establish a foothold in the film world in his early days. At that time RK did not even know the ‘Kakhg’ of the film industry. He had seen his father making films, so he also wanted to be a part of the film world. Seeing his father talking about films since childhood, the desire to become a hero also arose in his mind. But initially no one gave him a chance in front of the camera without any experience, even Prithviraj Kapoor had given him strict instructions that he should not dream of becoming a hero from now on. For this they have to learn work first. In such a situation, Raj Kapoor was sent to a filmmaker – to learn work.

Famous filmmaker Kidar Sharma had mentioned this story

This anecdote was mentioned by the famous director of that time, Kidar Sharma. One of his videos is an old interview in which he told that story of Raj Kapoor. He had told that Prithviraj had sent his son to friend Kidar Sharma so that he could learn the work related to filmmaking.

He told that Raj Kapoor was also happy that he got entry on the film set and soon he will become an actor too. Kidar Sharma used to tell him about the making of films to behaving on the sets. But as a child, Raj Kapoor used to forget at that second moment what he had been told. Now during this, the filmmaker noticed two things about Raj Kapoor. Before speaking the action in the shooting, Raj Kapoor used to go to the first assistant and ask where is the close up from? Secondly, he was given the task of playing the clap, but he used to do less work and was busy composing himself. So that they come in the frame somehow and then later they can take the cutting of that scene.

Filmmaker was harassed by Raj Kapoor

When the director was shooting an important scene, Raj Kapoor did it again. During this, Kidar Sharma warned Raj Kapoor not to do this. Even after interrupting twice, when Raj Kapoor did not agree and started coming in the frame again and again, Kidar Sharma could not stop his anger. The director got up from his place and went and slapped Raj Kapoor. Now there was silence on the set. Everyone felt that if he is the son of Prithviraj, then he will give a strong answer. But this did not happen. Although Kidar Sharma had said that at that time his hand was raised in anger, but he also felt that if he is the son of a big star, then he will also give the opposite answer.

After eating the slap, Raj Kapoor quietly left from there. Kidar Sharma had told that he did not sleep that night. He had told that ‘I realized that day that he wants to face the camera. He doesn’t want to work behind the camera. Then when I went to the office the next morning, I called my typewriter and got a contract typed. Also wrote a check of Rs 5000, which used to be a huge amount at that time.

Kidar Sharma saw something special in Raj Kapoor’s eyes

Kidar Sharma had told- ‘He came to the office chirping as usual and said hello papa ji. I said son, come here. So he said in response that will you give it on the other cheek too? I called him inside and said take this contract. I was making a film at that time ‘Poor God’. Tears welled up in his eyes seeing that check. I told him that when he was killed yesterday, he did not cry, and today I am giving the check so he is crying? On this, Raj Kapoor said – don’t do this, you will be ruined. I saw a passion for acting in that boy’s eyes. I had said at that time that one day you will show a lot.
