Mumbai: The iconic film ‘Mera Naam Joker’ clocked 47 years on Monday. Rishi Kapoor, who made his debut in Bollywood with the film, has shared a priceless picture on social media.

An 18-year-old boy Rishi was a lead actor in the film and his co-star Simi Garewal was 23 years old. He shared a picture along with the caption, “47 years back “Mera Naam Joker” released on 18th December 1970 @Simi_Garewal”

Garewal played the role of Raju’s teacher Mary. In the movie, Raju never manages to convey his feelings to Mary and ends up attending her wedding.
