Pakistan to convert Rishi Kapoor’s ancestral home in Peshawar into a museum!
The Pakistan government has decided to convert Bollywood star Rishi Kapoor’s ancestral home in Peshawar’s Qissa Khwani Bazar into a museum soon according to a request by the actor.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that the Pakistan government will turn the actor’s house into a museum.
“There was a call from Rishi Kapoor. He requested that his family’s home in Peshawar should be made into a museum or some sort of institution. We have accepted his request.”
“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 said.
The Kapoor Haveli in Qissa Khwani Bazar was built by Basheswarnath Kapoor, the father of Bollywood icon Prithviraj Kapoor.
The Kapoor family left Peshawar after the Partition in 1947.
