“We were taking a private flight to Ahmedabad for an event.” I was born to be dramatic. Drama ka shauk bachpan se jyada tha. He sat next to me. I had my gaze fixed on him. I mean, Rajesh Khanna, please give me a break. I extremely chalk. -ly replied, ‘Wahan to boot throng Hoga, bheed hogi. Aap mera haath pakdoge na? (Will that place be very crowded?
Will, you take my hand in yours?)’ ‘Haan bilkul (Why not?)’ he said. ‘Hamesha ke liye?’ I replied. (Forever?)’ And the rest, as they say, is history. “It occurred,” she remembered, burst out laughing.
However, Dimple Kapadia and Rajesh Khanna’s marriage was short-lived. In 1982, the two split up. Dimple had two daughters at the time, Twinkle Khanna and Rinke Khanna. She returned to the big screen barely two years later. The actor remarked on The Pritish Nandy Show that she couldn’t understand the superstar. Dimple Kapadia said in a post-separation interview that the reason they split up was that they were “different kinds of people.”
However, Dimple Kapadia did not get Bobby in her first attempt. She was “rejected” because she “appeared to be older than Rishi Kapoor.” Raj Kapoor, on the other hand, gave her a second opportunity. He gave her wings to fly and gave her the assurance that she could pull off the job.
“I was in school, and I read in the newspaper that he (Raj Kapoor) has a new appearance.
That’s me, I told my friends. You can afford to be so confident at that age. I was escorted to the screen test and instantly denied it since I appeared to be older than Rishi Kapoor. However, he offered me another screen test, and I was cast in the picture. In one scene, I worked so hard to make the audience cry. He’d help me out. I’ve yet to meet another filmmaker like him. He gives you the impression that you are capable of achieving it. “He instilled that type of trust in you,” she recalled.
Dimple Kapadia was most recently seen in A Thursday. She will also appear in Pathaan, directed by Shah Rukh Khan, and Brahmastra, directed by Ranbir Kapoor.
