Randhir Kapoor also known as 'Dabboo' is the son of actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor, grandson of actor Prithviraj and the brother of Rishi Kapoor. Born on February 15, 1947, the actor first appeared on the big screen in Shree 420 as a kid. His first role as a leading man was in Kal Aaj Aur Kal, which released in 1971.
Soon, the actor went on to star in films like Jeet, Jawaani Deewani, Raampur Ka Lakshman, Haath Ki Safai amongst others. In his career, Randhir even helmed movies like Heena, Dharam Karam. Speaking about his early days, Randhir had once said in an interview, "We travelled by bus and train during our school days. Our upbringing was mainly looked after by our mother as our father was a very busy man. My mother was a strict parent.
When I decided to join films, my father did not say, "Aajao beta main tumhe launch karta hoon (Come son, I will launch your career)." Instead, he insisted that I apprentice with someone else."
