At the age of 16, Dimple Kapadia made her Bollywood debut opposite Rishi Kapoor in Bobby. The film was a massive hit back in 1973 for its freshness and innocence and made stars out of Kapadia and Kapoor. Even after 47 years of its release, the Raj Kapoor directorial continues to woo the young audience. Lakshmikant-Pyarelal added stars to the movie and songs like “Main Shayar Toh Nahi”, “Jhooth Bole Kauwa Kaate”, “Hum Tum Ek Kamre Mein Band Ho” and “Na Chahu Sona Chandi” enjoy a cult status till date.

Starring Dimple Kapadia, Rishi Kapoor and Kamal Haasan, the Ramesh Sippy directed film had a love triangle at the centre of its plot.
