Rajiv Kapoor was the youngest son of Raj Kapoor. He made his Bollywood debut in 1985 with Ram Teri Ganga Maili, which was produced and directed by Raj Kapoor. Mandakini also started her acting innings with Ram Teri Ganga Maili. Ram Teri Ganga Maili is a love story, which also underlined the topic of social discrimination. The music of this film was very popular. Rajiv did not do more films in his career. He did not get much success as an actor. In 1996, he made his directorial debut in the film Premagraanth, in which Rishi Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit played the lead roles.
