Do Dooni Chaar

The delightful urban comedy united Rishi and Neetu Kapoor after years, as a middle-class couple in Delhi, who are parents to two teenage kids. Kapoor delighted as the guy next door as the Habib Faisal film, released in 2010, created humour out of everyday situations an average middle-class family faces, highlighted by the ‘challenge’ they face while buying a new car.


The 2012 film directed by Karan Malhotra was a remake of the original 1990 film of the same name, but Rishi Kapoor’s character Rauf Lala was written as an original. “Agneepath” remains special in Kapoor’s filmography because contradicting his feel-good image, he portrayed Rauf Lala as a cold, cruel and calculating criminal, yet deeply caring about his family and dear ones.


The 2013 action thriller by Nikhil Advani saw Rishi Kapoor excel in an out and out antagonist role, as Iqbal Seth Aka Goldman, a character said to be based on Dawood Ibrahim. The film is about an elite team from India that must infiltrate Pakistan and bring back The Most Wanted Man. The film also starred Irrfan Khan, Arjun Rampal, Huma Qureshi and Shruti Haasan.
