7. RK has a global fan following.



His name is famous in Africa, the Middle East, China, Turkey, Southeast Asia and the former Soviet Union. His antics reminded us of Charlie Chaplin's penchant as he imitated the tramp-like walk.

9. Singer Mukesh was called the voice of RK. After his death RK "lost his voice"!



Raj worked in close association with music director duo Shankar-Jaikishan in around 20 films. Legendary singers Mukesh and Manna Dey were the only ones who sang for RK, with Mukesh crooning most of his tracks. It is said that when Mukesh passed away, RK said, "Maine apni awaaz ko kho diya..."

10. RK's Mera Naam Joker had two intervals.



If you saw this film in your childhood, chances are you won't realise the depth of it. Why we call the movie, a piece of art is because of it's relevance in any time period. The film is one of the most iconic films in India. It is said the film was so heavy on its subject, that it was the first Hindi movie to have two intervals. And it was four and a half hours long!

11. Raj Kapoor witnessed the recording of four songs of Henna before his demise.



Raj was supposed to direct the film Heena, starring Rishi and Pakistani actress Zeba Bakhtiar. But due to his demise, the remaining songs were recorded after RK's death by Randhir Kapoor, who then completed the film.

12. Zeenat Aman's selection for Satyam Shivam Sundaram was a memorable one.



RK was in the process of finalising the actress for this film. That's when Zeenat, dressed up as a village girl with a burnt face, apparently landed up at his office. Raj got so impressed with her dedication that he finalised her name immediately.
