New Delhi: Rishi Kapoor's evergreen song 'Main Shayar To Nahi' from his debut film 'Bobby' recently took over the US, a video of which was shared by the veteran actor himself on Twitter.
It happened when Rishi Kapoor visited a salon in New York and on recognising him, a Russian national played the song. Elated with the sweet gesture, the 66-year-old actor tweeted, "My anthem played in a salon whilst getting a haircut. Russian recognised me and played it from his notebook. Thank you, Sergie."
