To boost young talent, Sony Entertainment Television’s Indian Idol gives a stage to aspiring singers every year. And this weekend, the stage would be graced by Padmini Kolhapure and Poonam Dhillion. During the shoot, Padmini shared many stories and one of the special ones was of Rishi Kapoor.
Padmini Kolhapure revealed that the late actor saved her twice from fire. She said it was during the shoot of the song Hoga tumsay pyaara kaun when the entire set caught fire, and the second incident took place during the shoot of the movie Prem Rog.
Padmini said, “Rishi ji was not only a great actor, but a very nice human being also. He was always there to help others and he saved me twice. The respect I had for him inevitably increased. He will always be there in our prayers.”
