Veteran actor Annu Kapoor went down memory lane and shared that late actor Raj Kapoor had charged only Re 1 as fee to act in the 1966 movie “Teesri Kasam”.
Annu shot for an episode of “Superstar Singer” as a guest judge. One contestant sang “Paan khaaye saaiyan humaro” from “Teesri Kasam”.
“The producer of ‘Teesri Kasam’; Shailendra ji was also the writer of all the songs of the movie. Also, Raj Kapoorji charged a fee of Re 1 to act in the movie which turned out to be a huge blockbuster of its era,” Annu said.
Talking about himself, the “Mr. India” actor said: “I started my career with Nautanki in helplessness as I belonged to a not so financially strong family. But because my father did not have enough money hence, I could not do IAS.
“I was left with no other option to choose from and that is why I started my career in acting by doing Nautanki shows like ‘Laila Majnu’ and ‘Harishchandra’.”
