13. RK had a fascination with white sarees for all his actresses.



Call it a lucky charm or his fascination, all of RK's leading ladies have worn a white saree. We hear Raj once gifted his wife Krishna a white saree. And he found it so soothing, that all of his actresses, henceforth, have worn it in at least one scene in his films.

14. Hrishikesh Mukherjee was inspired to make Anand because of RK.



The news of RK's ill-henkgh and the fear of losing his dear friend began haunting Mukherjee so much that he made Anand, inspired from him. RK suffered from an acute asthma.

15. RK passed away on the day he was honoured with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award.



Despite being in a very bad henkgh, RK agreed to come personally to Delhi to receive the big award. The ceremony was held at the Sirifort Auditorium and due  to security reasons, his oxygen cylinder wasn't allowed inside. When his name was announced, he felt a chest pain and asked his wife to go on the stage. Seeing this the then President of India R. Venkataraman broke the protocol and walked down the stage himself for RK. But by then his condition began falling and RK had to be rushed to the AIIMS. He was admitted with an advanced stage of trachea obstruction, and after a month of battling for life on artificial respiratory system, he succumbed to "multiple organ failure leading to cardio-respiratory arrest". Raj Kapoor continues to remain an inspiration and a benchmark for every Indian filmmaker. His films spoke about love, life and struggles of a common man. Despite living a lavish life himself, his films spoke of reality and real suffering of every Indian. Be it Boot Polish, Shree 420, Jagte Raho or Anari, all of his 72 films are an entire library of filmmaking in itself. His last film on paper was Ram Teri Ganga Maili. But his impact on future generation of directors still reverberates in the films of today. A bow to the true showman of India. A bow to Raj Kapoor sir!
