Rishi kapoor Quotes

I landed in Bobby by default. There was a misconception that the film was made to launch me as an actor. The film was actually made to pay the debts of Mera Naam Joker. Dad wanted to make a love story and he did not have money to cast superstar Rajesh Khanna in the film.So story was converted to a teenage love story and I was cast.
