Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor is all set to release his much-awaited autobiography Khullam Khulla. Published by Harper Collins, the book has a detailed account of the actor's life and career.
According to The Times Of India, the 64-year old actor has not only opened up about the depression he underwent during the failure of his film Karz but also made a revelation about his meetings with underworld don Dawood Ibrahim.
Kapoor has revealed that he had accepted an invitation to tea from Ibrahim in 1988 when he visited Dubai to attend a concert by Asha Bhosle and RD Burman. He also explains why he didn't feel there was anything wrong in meeting the gangster at that time.
The second meeting, the actor reveals, was more random at a shopping store in Dubai in 1989 while he was accompanied by his wife Neetu Singh.
The actor may have come from a filmy background but the struggle, he believes, was equally challenging as he emerged as a romantic hero at a time when only action-oriented films were working in the film industry.
Rishi Kapoor took to Twitter last month to reveal the cover page and release date of his book:
