Rishi Kapoor
Rishi Kapoor is probably the supreme example of Bollywood's dynastic tendencies. He's the son of Raj Kapoor, the nephew of Shashi Kapoor and Shammi Kapoor, the father of rising star Ranbir Kapoor, and the uncle of Karisma Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor. He made his debut in Bobby, a teen romance directed by his father in the early seventies, and quickly became a heartthrob. Despite his formidable comedic talents, slowly expanding waistline and penchant for weirdly patterned and Adorkable sweaters, he remained locked into boring romantic-lead roles until the early nineties, by which point he was often being saddled with much younger leading ladies. Once he broke away from this typecasting, he proved a much acclaimed character actor, bringing life to even the most generic father/uncle roles. He is married to frequent costar Neetu Singh.
