Heeding to Bollywood star Rishi Kapoor’s request, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the Pakistan government will make the actor’s house in Peshawar’s Qissa Khwani Bazaar into a museum.
“He had called me and talked about making his ancestral home into a museum. Now the federal and provincial governments are working on this and will transform the house into a museum soon,” Afridi added.
The Kapoor Haveli in Dhaki Munawar Shar was built by Basheswarnath Kapoor , the father of Bollywood icon Prithviraj Kapoor . Prithviraj Kapoor’s father bought the house in 1918. It was here that Prithviraj was married and where his first three sons were born. Two of them did not survive infancy while Raj Kapoor was born in 1924.
