Bollywood's ultimate showman Raj Kapoor will be in the limelight long after the curtain to the International Indian Film Academy comes down in Toronto. Apart from the tribute planned during the IIFA weekend from June 23 to 25, a retrospective segment titled Raj Kapoor and the Golden Age of Indian Cinema will run for six weeks at the TIFF Bell Lightbox, a complex in downtown Toronto that screens cinematic gems.

This collaborative effort between IIFA and Toronto International Film Festival will kick off with a gala opening by acclaimed Bollywood filmmaker Karan Johar. The members of the illustrious Kapoor clan have also pledged their support.

"Our father was a great man both in his personal and professional life. His passion and love for cinema shines through in all his movies and he has made a place for himself in the hearts of cinema lovers all over India. I'm thrilled about this retrospective of his work and cannot wait to see it," said Rishi Kapoor at a press conference in Mumbai.
