We envy Rishi Kapoor's archive of old photographs. The veteran actor remembered legendary singer Mohammed Rafi on his death anniversary on Monday and shared pictures of his younger self along with the legend. "Remembering the great Mohammad Rafi Sahab. Thank you for being my voice, lost you 37 years back today. Peace be with you!" Mr Kapoor wrote on Twitter along with a rather worn-out photograph, which appears to be from a wedding both the actor and the late singer attended. Mr Kapoor dug out another memory dipped in nostalgia, which features too many legends in one frame - apart from Mohammed Rafi and Mr Kapoor, actor Jeetendra and singer-composer Kishore Kumar can also be seen in the click.

"With the three Legends at the recording of Deedar-E-Yaar Jeetendra ji, Rafi sahab and Kishore da. Blessed to have sung in the singers' voices," Mr Kapoor tweeted. 1982's Deedar-E-Yaar starred Jeetendra and Mr Kapoor as childhood friends with Rekha and Tina Munim joining the cast. The song Mere Dildaar Ka from Deedar-E-Yaar featured the two actors together and has been sung by both Kishore Kumar and Mohammed Rafi.

This is what Rishi Kapoor tweeted on Monday:
 
 

Mohammed Rafi died in 1980 at the age of 55 and is best known for songs like Kya Hua Tera Wada, Aaj Mausam Bada Beimaan Hai, Teri Bindiya Re and Aaj Kal Tere Mere Pyar Ke Charche. Laila Majnu, Sargam and Karz are some of the movies in which Rishi Kapoor featured in songs by Mohammad Rafi. Pardah Hai Pardah from Rishi Kapoor's Amar Akbar Anthony has also been sung by Mohammad Rafi, which continues to be a favourite of many.

Meanwhile, Rishi Kapoor is currently shooting for a film with Amitabh Bachchan titled 102 Not Out. He was last seen in Shakun Batra's Kapoor And Sons.
