Raj Kapoor museum on anvil near Pune

MUMBAI: Ten years after the Raj Kapoor family gave away their Rajbaug Farms at Loni near Pune to MIT Institute of Design, a museum dedicated to the late Raj Kapoor is coming up in the complex.

?People who have been to the farm way back in those days will not be able to recognise what they see today. But I like what Dr Karnad, Director of MIT Institute of Design, has done to the place. It looks no less than Harvard right here on the outskirts of Pune. Dr Karnad is now working on transforming my father?s house there into a museum of sorts that will feature a lot of dad?s work,? said Rajiv Kapoor in a statement.

The museum is being constructed with a theme, ? The seven pagodas?. Each section will have on display a statue of Raj Kapoor seen as one of the popular characters he played on the big screen.

The rest of the rooms will showcase posters, photographs, trivia and such other interesting things from the life of the actor during that period.

The halls will then lead, through a common hallway of paintings of the star, to an amphitheatre, wherein guests will be allowed to watch any of the actor?s films.

The construction of the museum is going on in full swing and it?s a matter of time before the museum is up and ready and open for public viewing.
