The ancestral homes of Golden Age heroes Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar in the metropolis are symbols of the world’s largest movie business. Unfortunately, it has been neglected for many years.
Kumar, who is now 97, has credited his successful career to his early life in the neighborhood, where he first learned to narrate.
The household residence of Kapoor, who died aged 63 in 1988, is influenced by Mughal empire, Central Asian and British colonial design, that includes ornately carved doorways and balconies and gothic-style home windows.
“This is our cultural heritage and we take pride in preserving it. We are very proud that Dilip Kumar and Raj Kapoor were from Peshawar”
Abdul Samad mentions in his statement, Director of Archaeology and Museums in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province.
