Son of a famous father. father of a famous son. i am the hyphen between them. characteristically candid, rishi kapoor brings punjabi brio to the writing of khullam khulla. this is as up close and personal a biography as any fan could have hoped for. he writes about growing up in the shadow of a legendary father, skipping school to act in mera naam joker, the workings of the musical hits of the era, his streak of rotten luck with awards, an encounter with dawood ibrahim, his heroines (their working relationship, the gossip and the frisson that was sometimes real), his approach to his craft, his tryst with clinical depression, and more. a heart-warming afterword by neetu singh rounds off the warmest, most dil se biography an indian star has ever penned.
