Remember the iconic song “Pyaar Hua Iqraar Hua” and the iconic pose given by the two legendary actors. It was filmed on Raj Kapoor and Nargis Dutt. Raj Kapoor was known as the Showman of Bollywood. He contributed everything to film industry from romance to comedy, action to direction.
But his real-life romance and love shattered him and his life went on to become miserable. Raj Kapoor left heartbroken and shocked when his love Nargis got married to Sunil Dutt. Raj Kapoor, who was already married to Krishna never able to digest the fact that his love was gone forever.
He really loved Nargis but as he was already married he couldn’t marry her. He was possessive for her and already thought that she always stayed with him no matter what! But Nargis could not live like this, she needed a status of a wife and her own family. So she decided to marry co-star Sunil Dutt.
This left Raj Kapoor heartbroken. He got addicted to alcohol and used to come home late. After returning home late at night, he fell asleep in the bathtub. It was mentioned by Raj Kapoor in an interview, he had said that he slept in the bathtub, so that no one could see him weeping.
In the memories of Nargis, Raj Kapoor became mad and he could not come out of it till the end. Nargis was that lifeline of his life, whom he neither could leave nor could accept completely.
