Recently, the Government of Pakistan decided to convert Rishi Kapoor’s ancestral home, located in Peshawar, into a museum. It has been revealed that the request was made by Rishi Kapoor himself to the government.
While talking to the media, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi revealed this news and said that the renovation of the haveli will be done soon.
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.
The Minister of State for Interior Shehryar Afridi also revealed that Rishi Kapoor called him to preserve his family’s haveli to which they are responding positively.
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.
Well, if it is happening, then we cannot wait to visit the museum.
The haveli of Rishi Kapoor’s ancestors is located in Qissa Khwani Bazar and was built by his great-grandfather, Dewan Basheswarnath Kapoor who was the father of Prithviraj Kapoor and grandfather of Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor, and Shashi Kapoor. The family shifted to India in the 1930s and completely after the creation of Pakistan in 1947.
