Shah Rukh Khan’s ‘Fauji’ Maker Colonel Raj Kapoor Dies at 87

NEW DELHI: The director who introduced Shah Rukh Khan with the television show Fauji, Colonel Raj Kumar Kapoor passed away at the age of 87 at a hospital.

He passed away on Wednesday night due to age-related issues, a family member said.

He retired from the army after he became a disciple of Osho and moved to Mumbai to work in films. He produced many serials and acted in full-length and ad films. Just a few years ago, he published the novel “When Shiva Smiles”.

In Samar Khan’s book titled “SRK – 25 Years of a Life”, Kapoor had penned an essay. He had shared his thoughts on being known as “the man who made ‘Fauji’ and therefore, by default, made Shah Rukh Khan”.
