Raj Kapoor and Pran Friendship: Bollywood actor Pran is counted among some of the best actors of Hindi cinema. He had made his place in millions of hearts with his performance. Alam was that he used to charge more than the hero of the film. According to media reports, in the 70s, Pran used to charge Rs 3-4 lakh for a film. Well, Raj Kapoor and Pran used to be good friends of each other, that’s why Pran took only Re 1 for his film ‘Bobby’. However, due to a check, the friendship of both had soured.
Raj Kapoor and Pran friendship broke because of a check: After the film ‘Mera Naam Joker’ flopped badly, Raj Kapoor announced to make a film ‘Bobby’ with Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia. According to media reports, Raj Kapoor had mortgaged his wife’s jewelery and even his property to make the film. Raj Kapoor spoke to Pran for the role of Rishi Kapoor’s father. He said, ‘I will not be able to pay as much as you have, but I am ready to pay whatever you say. Pran took only 1 rupee and said, ‘When the film becomes a hit, then give the money, otherwise forget it’.
Pran did not work with RK again: The film ‘Bobby’ was released and earned a lot at the box office. As soon as the film became a superhit, a lot of problems of Raj Kapoor subsided. After this, Raj Kapoor thought of paying his fee to Pran and signed a check of Rs 1 lakh and sent it to Pran. But Pran got angry on seeing the check. Because Pran felt that he supported Raj Kapoor in bad times but even when things went well, Raj Kapoor did not pay his fees. After this Pran never worked in RK Films (Raj Kapoor) again.
