Priyanka Chopra remembers Rishi Kapoor: He was the keeper of our hearts

“I had the privilege of working with him in Agneepath, in which he played a fierce, no-holds-barred character, someone to hate rather than love. He was mischievous, rebellious, passionate—and he made falling in love seem so easy and so within our grasp. “From his first leading role in 1973’s Bobby, he was the keeper of our hearts, ushering in a new era of romance in Hindi movies.
