Appreciate the Home Minister's warm courtesy & affection during our interaction and his love for cinema, #RajKapoor & the arts!"
Published by Bloomsbury India, the book is written by filmmaker Rahul Rawail, who served as an assistant director to Raj Kapoor on films like "Bobby".
Rawail said the book is a "humble homage to his guru Raj Kapoor". Rawail, known for movies like "Love Story", "Betaab", and "Arjun", said it was "Shahid" writer Apoorva Asrani who asked him to write a book on Raj Kapoor. The book gives an insider view into the life of Raj Kapoor as a filmmaker and how Rawail learned the ropes of filmmaking at the Kapoor family's iconic RK Studios.
