Mr. Nath lives a very wealthy lifestyle in India along with his wife, Sushma, and a 6 year old son, Raj.

A chunk from real life of Raj Kapoor. Raj Kapoor, as a new actor, went to Jaddan Bai's home to ask her to allow her daughter to work in his film/or some other reason . Nargis was making 'pakode' in her home and came running to receive the stranger standing outside. She opened the door and rubbed her forehead to clear the hair and 'besan' got stuck on her forehead. This was the time when Raj was mesmerized by her and it started the course of a very successful on screen pair. He put this situation in 'Bobby'. See more »
Raj Kapoor proved himself as a successful director by the release of Bobby. He introduced his next son Rishi, (younger than the elder Randhir) who later in years became a screen icon along with Amitab.
Bobby was released in 1973 during the Rajesh Khanna years and this film was eventful in the sense that people learned and became aware of a young entrant of an old Indian cinema family - The first being the Prithvi Raj Kapoor.
The songs composed by R.D. Burman are mesmerizing and the direction is also superb. This film along with Amitabh's "Zanjeer" both released in 1973 served a real shock to the "Khanna phenomenon" which was the talk of every town for the last so many years.
