Veteran actor Prithviraj Kapoor, who gave many hits and superhit films in Bollywood, said goodbye to the world on this day, but even today millions of people are his fans. Even today he is inhabited in millions of hearts. Prithviraj Kapoor was the first actor to lay the foundation of the Kapoor dynasty in Hindi cinema and he was born on 3 November 1906 in Lailpur (currently Faisalabad). This area became part of Pakistan after partition and his father Basheshwanath Kapoor was a police officer.  Prithviraj was fond of acting since childhood and he started acting in the theaters of Lailpur and Peshawar.

In the year 1928, Prithviraj Kapoor moved to Mumbai and joined the Imperial Film Company. After that his first film was 'Do Dhari Talwar', in which he was seen as a side artist. After that, his first film as a lead actor was 'Cinema Girl' made in the year 1929. After working in nearly nine silent films, Prithviraj appeared as a supporting actor Vidyapati in the country's first sound film 'Alam Ara'.

After every show in the theater, Prithviraj used to stand with a bag at the gate and the people who went out of the show put some money in that bag. Prithviraj used to help the employees working in the theater with that money. In the year 1972, the Government of India honored him with the Dadasaheb Phalke Award, the biggest award in Hindi cinema.
