In an illustrious career spanning five decades, Rishi Kapoor not only gave us several remarkable films, but also songs ranging from romantic to party numbers. His musical hits include Bobby, Saagar, Karz, Khel Khel Mein, Chandni, Deewana and more.

In his memoir titled “Khullam Khulla” (2017), Rishi had revealed that he never really liked his songs. He wrote, “I must admit that I was often hopelessly wrong in my initial reactions to some of these chartbusters. I remember Boney Kapoor coming to meet me, brimming with excitement, with a recording of ‘Om Shanti Om’ in Karz. I gave Boney an earful, saying what a lousy number it was and wondering how Laxmikant–Pyarelal could come up with such a number for me.”
