New Delhi:

Rishi Kapoor struck gold in his photo archive on Tuesday night and the 66-year-old actor delighted his fans by sharing the throwback picture on his Twitter profile. BTW, did we tell you that the star-studded picture also features late music director R D Burman and late film producer Nasir Hussain among others. In his post, Rishi Kapoor referred to the late music director as "Pancham" and revealed that the picture was taken at R D Burman's residence on his birthday. Rishi Kapoor described the post as "a fun picture" and revealed that singer Asha Bhosle had cooked a meal on her husband's birthday that night.

"This picture was shot on Pancham's birthday at his sitting room/residence. The gentleman behind me is not Manna Dey sahab but my favourite Nasir Husain sahab. Such a fun picture. Asha Bhonsle ji cooked for us that night. Pancham's unreleased music from several films regaled us," read the caption on Rishi Kapoor's post.
