Missing for a decade, actor Raj Kiran found in US mental asylum

Missing for a decade, actor Raj Kiran found in US mental asylum
“Raj Kiran is not dead. He’s very much around,” says actress Deepti Naval who worked with the actor in the 1984 film Hip Hip Hurray. But Naval’s relief is apparently muted, for Raj Kiran has finally been traced to a mental institution in Atlanta.

Raj Kiran, known for playing the previous incarnation of the character of Rishi Kapoor in director Subhash Ghai’s film Karz, or who strummed the guitar and with limpid eye expressions crooned the soothing and thought-provoking song “Tum itna jo muskura rahi ho, kya gham hai jisko chhupa rahi ho” in director Mahesh Bhatt’s Arth, has been missing for about a decade now.

Director Mahesh Bhatt says he noticed minor traces of paranoia in Raj from the start, but never anticipated that he would one day land in a mental asylum. Since Raj Kiran has been missing for such a long time, it’s hard to piece together the reasons for his mental decline, but reports suggest that when his wife and son left him due to his erratic and hot tempered mood swings, the shock was too much for Raj to bear.

He was even institutionalized in India before he flew to the US. Last, he was seen driving a cab. After that he just disappeared for many years altogether, and was even presumed dead, but his colleagues Rishi Kapoor and Deepti Naval did not lose hope.

A few weeks back, Naval even posted on her Facebook page: “Looking for a friend from the film world his name is Raj Kiran - we have no news of him - last heard he was driving a cab in NY city if anyone has any clue, please tell . . .”

But it was Rishi Kapoor who showed remarkable gumption on his trip to the US and traced one of Raj Kiran’s brothers and got to know about the actor’s whereabouts. Rishi says he would visit Raj Kiran in Atlanta soon and will try to bring him back to Mumbai so that he can restart his acting career and have a normal life again. Many folks from the film industry hope the same.
