‘‘FOR ME HE'LL ALWAYS REMAIN ALIVE''
JUHI CHAWLA GOES INTO FLASHBACK MODE AS SHE REMINISCES ABOUT HER LATE CO-STAR RISHI KAPOOR. SUMAN SHARMA TAKES NOTES
SUMAN SHARMA

The first time I met Rishiji (Kapoor), it was at the music launch of Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak (1988). Producer Nasir Hussain saab had invited him as a chief guest that night. He was a top star, while we (Aamir Khan and I) were newcomers. Aamir and I were formally introduced to him. The first film I did with him was Kalptaru’s Rishta Ho To Aisa (1992). Jeetuji (Jeetendra) was part of it too. We were shooting in Kamalistan Studio. I had a scene with him at a police station. I was extremely nervous. But he didn’t throw any star tantrum. He was quick to do his job and leave for the next shift.

Then on, we went on to do many films together including Bol Radha Bol (1992), Ghar Ki Izzat (1994) and Eena Meena Deeka (1994). Rishiji being my senior, my equation with him was different from what I shared with Shah Rukh Khan or Aamir Khan. It was full of respect.
