2. A scene of Raj Kapoor and Nargis, became the logo of his studio.



Raj Kapoor set up RK Films in 1948. But it was Barsaat that became the first hit of his studio. Remember the scene where him and Nargis are holding a violin? That went on to become the logo of RK Films.

3. Call him Ranbir Raj Kapoor. That has more weight!



RK's real name Ranbir is today shared by his grandson. Raj was actually the middle name of all Kapoor brothers.

4. RK led the baraat of Dilip Kumar.



Dilip Kumar had the most glorious weddings of that time. And such was his bond with Raj Kapoor, that the showman led his baraat along with his father Prithviraj and actor Dev Anand.

5. RK, Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand starred in an incomplete film.



The real-life closeness, of Raj, Dilip Kumar and Dev Anand couldn't reciprocate on the silver screen. Filmmaker Vijay Anand started a film with the trio but the movie got shelved due to ego and dates hassles.

The scene where Rishi meets Dimple Kapadia in her house was picked from RK's real life meeting with his favourite actress Nargis.
