Our Monday couldn't get any better as we chanced upon a really interesting throwback picture of Rishi Kapoor. The 67-year-old actor, who returned to India last month, posted a throwback picture of himself from the sets of the 1991 film Henna. In the photo, Rishi Kapoor could be seen shaving his beard. Sharing the photo on Twitter, Rishi Kapoor mentioned that it was sent by one of his friends. "Well that beard was gotten rid of. This picture, sent by a friend, is during the filming of Henna," he captioned the post. Henna also featured Zeba Bakhtiyar, Ashvini Bhave, Farida Jalal, late actor Saeed Jaffrey and Raza Murad.

In Henna, Rishi Kapoor's character mistakenly enters Pakistan on the day of his engagement. The film revolves around his love story with Pakistani girl Henna (played by Zeba Bakhtiyar). Henna has been written by Khwaja Ahmad Abbas, produced and directed by Rishi Kapoor's brother Randhir Kapoor.
Rishi Kapoor frequently shares priceless throwback pictures on social media. On legendary actor Dev Anand's birth anniversary, Rishi Kapoor paid tribute to the actor by sharing a couple of throwback photos of himself and the late actor. "Salute to the evergreen star Dev Anand sahab on his 97th birthday. Never a style icon and a young at heart like him. Just after Bobby's release (1973), he told me at Stardust magazine's party, 'We youngsters should do a film together.' Such was his confidence. God Bless you sir!" he captioned his post.
