The Bollywood film industry has witnessed numerous instances when friends have turned into foes and displayed their animosity publicly. While some of the stars have reunited over time, a few others have never reconciled with each other. Some of these infamous fights continue to grab the headlines of gossip columns from time to time. Today, we will be talking about a public altercation between two veteran actors, Raj Kapoor and Raaj Kumar that created a lot of buzz back then.

It so happened that the two actors were present together at Bollywood's popular villain Prem Chopra’s wedding party. Raj Kapoor was probably drunk at the event in which he reportedly went up to Raaj Kumar and publicly shouted at him and called him a murderer. The latter was obviously taken aback by these harsh words of the Mera Naam Joker actor post which he stated that although he might be a killer, he had never approached Raj Kapoor for work.

For the unversed, Raaj Kumar served as a sub-inspector of Mumbai police before venturing into Hindi films. However, he later left the job because of allegedly getting involved in a murder case. The actor earned fame owing to his stellar performances in movies. It is during that time Raj Kapoor offered him a role in his film Mera Naam Joker. However, Raaj Kumar bluntly refused the offer stating that he will be doing only solo films. The actor also went on to say that he cannot be compared to actors like Dharmendra and Manoj Kumar. These statements did not go well with Raj Kapoor who apparently vented out his anger on Raaj Kumar after he met the latter at the wedding party.

Raaj Kumar's classic dialogue delivery and his eccentricities are common knowledge. Once he went to a party and found Bhappi Lahiri sitting with lots of jewelry around his neck. He went up to him and said loudly,"Jaani, tumhara Mangal Sutra kahan hai?"

While I do not take any side, what was Raaj Kumar in Wakt, Gumraah, Pakeezah.He wasn't sole hero. All those films were made before Mera Naam Joker.

Raaj Kumar a classy eccentric.

Raj Kumar was a good actor but supposed to be eccentric. Pity none of his kids could reach his mark .

So i know another story. Raj Kumar had apparently killed a man for passing lewd comments at a lady he was strolling wwith. My PG owner was related to the man who was murdered.

Apparently, this allegedly happened at Juhu beach when a adventurous guy started picking up a fight with Raj Kumar after first passing comments against his lady friend.

what's suprising. Kapoors are not never known for classy acts.
