Randhir Kapoor's birthday special piece should start with a fun fact that many of today's generation isn't aware of. Raj Kapoor's eldest son made his acting debut with Kal Aaj Aur Kal in 1971 which was also his directorial debut. Perhaps he was one of the firsts to do the same. The film had his grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor, father Raj Kapoor and himself representing three generations. He starred opposite his wife Babita in this film. So Kal Aaj Aur Kal is pretty momentous for him and also the industry. Kareena, Saif Ali Khan and Taimur Join Karisma, Randhir Kapoor For a Perfect Family Portrait!

Aati rahengi baharen - Kasme Vaade
Although it has Amitabh Bachchan and Rakhee in it, this will always be a Randhir Kapoor song as he played the most adorable younger brother here.

That's one song that may not be a favourite of many but is still loved by all. A drunk Randhir Kapoor dances with the very beautiful Neetu Singh.
