Mumbai: Kapoor family’s Holi is very famous in Bollywood. Raj Kapoor maintained the tradition of celebrating Holi that started from the time of Prithviraj Kapoor. In the era of Raj Kapoor, the people of the industry used to eagerly wait for RK Studio Holi Celebration. Now neither Raj Kapoor remains, nor the people who do Holi party like him. However, there are some stories that are often mentioned like this. In Raj Kapoor’s Holi party, the people of the film industry used to have a lot of fun throughout the day, but after everyone’s departure, special guest eunuchs used to come to RK Studio around 4 pm.
It was Raj Kapoor’s rule that every year he used to play Holi with eunuchs. After Rang-Gulal, there used to be a gathering to play songs with eunuchs. It is said that Raj Kapoor used to trust eunuchs a lot, used to sing songs of his upcoming films, when eunuchs were approved, only then he used to keep that song in his films.

The famous film ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’ released in 1985 also has a similar story. As usual, Raj Kapoor made the eunuchs listen to the songs of this film. The eunuchs got the green signal on all the other songs, but they had objections to one song. When the eunuchs did not like the song, Raj Kapoor called composer Ravindra Jain and asked him to make a new song instead.
Changed the song at the behest of eunuchs
Late film critic Jaiprakash Choukse had told, ‘Kinnar used to come to meet Raj Kapoor at 4 pm after everyone had left. RK used to dance in the studio and recite the songs of his new films to him, then when he got his approval, he used to keep it in the film. Eunuchs did not like one of the songs of the film ‘Ram Teri Ganga Maili’, then Raj Kapoor made a new song, respecting their advice, which became ‘Sun Sahiba Sun’. When the song was ready, it was narrated to the eunuchs again, which they liked very much. The eunuchs had told Raj Kapoor ‘see, this song will last for years’ and it happened like that.
