It's been a nostalgic month for actor Rishi Kapoor who seems to be hanging out with his former heroines with delightful frequency, by design or otherwise. He's been documenting it all on Twitter, of course. Some weeks ago, he posted a photo of himself with his Damini heroine Meenakshi Seshadri, prompting a virtual double take among his fans. Now, he's tweeted a picture with actress Padmini Kolhapure, with who he happened to be on a flight back to Mumbai from Hyderabad.
Mr Kapoor, who was in Hyderabad to attend an award show, tweeted:
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:
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:
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:
