Mumbai: It’s raining biographies in Bollywood. Everyone from Asha Parekh to Nawazuddin Siddiqui are into the tell-all game. And the latest to join in on the bandwagon is filmmaker Rahul Rawail. No, he isn’t penning his own life story. He’s writing what promises to be the authoritative biography on Raj Kapoor. And who better equipped for the job than Rahul, who is associated very closely with the Kapoor family? Says Rahul, “That’s right. I’ve known Raj saab and his two sons very closely. I assisted Raj saab and then I directed Biwi Oh Biwi for the R.K. Films banner. I’ve been close friends with his sons Randhir and Rishi for decades. I’ve known the family very closely.”

But it’s not Kapoor’s personal details that interest Rahul. “I’m fascinated by his journey as an actor and a filmmaker. It’s this journey I want to write about.”Rahul has already laid the groundwork with research, and will soon begin writing the biography. “It’s one of the biggest challenges of my career,” says Rahul, whose father H.S. Rawail directed Rishi in Laila Majnu and Deedar-e-Yaar.
