Indian Media on 29 November claimed that following the instructions of Bollywood star Rishi Kapoor, his ancestral house in Qissa Khwani Bazar, Peshawar will be turned into museum.
“There was a call from Rishi Kapoor. He requested that his family’s home in Peshawar should be made into a museum or some sort of institution. We have accepted his request,” stated the Minister of Foreign Affairs Shah Mahmood Qureshi.
Interior Minister Shehryar Khan Afridi said “He called me and spoke to me about making his ancestral home into a museum. Now the Federal and Provincial governments are working on transforming the house into a museum soon,” Afridi said.
The Kapoor Haveli in Qissa Khwani Bazar was built by Basheswarnath Kapoor, the father of Bollywood icon Prithviraj Kapoor. Raj Kapoor, the son of Prithviraj Kapoor, was born in Peshawar on December 14, 1924. The actor-director is best known for a string of hit films he made in the 1950s and 1960s.
