Rishi Kapoor wants to visit Pakistan

Actor’s family has its roots in the country

Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, 65, said he wants to visit Pakistan before he dies.

“I am 65 years old and I want to see Pakistan before I die. I want my children to see their roots,” Kapoor tweeted on Sunday.

The actor has a house in Peshawar, Pakistan. It was constructed between 1918 and 1922 by Dewan Basheswarnath Kapoor, the father of Prithviraj Kapoor, the first member of their family to enter the film industry.

The Kapoors moved to India after the 1947 partition.
