Bollywood actor Pran is counted among some of the best actors in Hindi cinema. He had made a place for himself in millions of hearts with his performance. Alam was that he used to charge more than the hero of the movie. According to media reports, in the 1970s, Pran used to charge 3-4 lakhs of rupees for a movie. Well Raj Kapoor and Pran used to be good friends with each other which is why Pran took only Re 1 for his movie ‘Bobby’. However, due to a check, their friendship had soured.
After the movie ‘Mera Naam Joker’ failed badly, Raj Kapoor announced that he would make a ‘Bobby’ movie with Rishi Kapoor and Dimple Kapadia. According to media reports, Raj Kapoor had mortgaged his wife’s jewelry and even his property to make the film. Raj Kapoor spoke to Pran for the role of Rishi Kapoor’s father. He said, ‘I won’t be able to pay as much as you, but I’m willing to pay what you say.’ Pran took only 1 rupee and said, “When the movie becomes a hit, then give the money, otherwise forget about it.”
The movie ‘Bobby’ opened and won a lot at the box office. As soon as the movie became a huge hit, Raj Kapoor’s many troubles subsided. After this Raj Kapoor thought about paying his fee to Pran and he signed a check for 1 lakh rupees and sent it to Pran. But Pran got angry when he saw the check. Because Pran felt like he supported Raj Kapoor in bad times, but even when things turned out well, Raj Kapoor didn’t pay his fees. After this, Pran never returned to work at RK Films (Raj Kapoor).
