Raj Kapoor has been among India's most popular movie stars since the 1940s and is best known for playing a plucky little fellow who is able to use his cleverness and determination to overcome numerous daunting obstacles. In this regard, Kapoor's character has been compared to that of Chaplin's . Kapoor is the son of silent-film actor, theater owner and film producer Prithvi Ra Kapoor. His brothers Shashi and Shammi are also actors. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
