Randhir also shared some interesting trivia involving his father, the late legendary actor and director Raj Kapoor, when he and Randhir witnessed famous lyricist Ravindra Jain singing the song Ek Radha Ek Meera during a wedding in Delhi.
The actor goes down memory lane and shares, “My father, the late Raj Kapoor saab and I had visited Delhi for someone’s wedding and Ravindra Jain was singing there. My father was seated in the front row while I was sitting right behind him. Ravindra Jain was singing the song ‘Ek Radha Ek Meera’ and my father really liked it so much that he requested him to sing it once more. He sang the song once again, with full excitement."
The episode will air during the weekend on Sony TV. The grand finale is on August 15.
