Interestingly, legendary actor-director Raj Kapoor is more popular in the country than any of the present day actors. In fact, Bollywood films are much in demand and people still prefer to watch a Raj Kumar film than any of the new star's, reportedly. Perhaps, that explains why the tune of Raj Kapoor's 'Awara Hoon' from the cult film 'Awara' was played in the honour of the PM.
