Mr Kapoor, who was in Hyderabad to attend an award show, tweeted:
Flying with the Padmini Kolhapure from Hydrabad. After years! pic.twitter.com/Kz4J2J8DWt? rishi kapoor (@chintskap) July 20, 2015
Padmini Kolhapure, now 49, starred with 65-year-old Rishi Kapoor in several films, beginning with 1981's Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai which was her first film as a lead actor (she was a successful child star).
Among those who took note of Mr Kapoor's tweet was politician Omar Abdullah who responded with this:
Loved you guys in Prem Rog & Zamaane ko Dikhana Hai. Some of the lines from ZKDH are still family favourites :) https://t.co/4i9Dygh445? Omar Abdullah (@abdullah_omar) July 20, 2015
Mr Kapoor thanked him and sent his 'best to the family.'
However, actress-politician Khushbu Sundar received this disclaimer when she tweeted about the 'wonderful memories' she had shooting Zamaane Ko Dikhana Hai:
Hello! Did we work in ZKDH? My memory fails me to recollect sorry! https://t.co/ZDPrijJSuI? rishi kapoor (@chintskap) July 20, 2015
Mr Kapoor, who joked about not having recognized Meenakshi Seshadri for a moment, is not to be blamed here. We can't recall Ms Sundar, who must have been a child artiste at the time, either.
Meanwhile, Padmini Kolhapure isn't the only showbiz face Rishi Kapoor scored a photo with on his Hyderabad visit:
