After dabbling with various affairs and almost getting married to Nagma, Rajeev Kapoor nee Chimpu, Raj Kapoor's youngest son and hero of the R K super-hit Ram Teri Ganga Maili is actually tying the nuptial knot on December 11 in Delhi.

38-year-old Rajeev Kapoor was hailed as the next Shammi Kapoor, owing to his uncanny resemblance to his uncle. Producers, directors and the audience looked for the Junglee star in him and that's where the actor stumbled. He too tried to imitate Shammi. The result was a non-career in films.

After a few mediocre releases Rajeev was best forgotten until he resurrected himself with his directorial debut with R K 's Prem Granth. Prem Granth was a dismal flop and with it, Rajeev was relegated to the background.

The actor is back in action with another project to be released under R K banner. Rajeev's resurrection sees him settling his personal life too. The marriage has been arranged and the bride-to-be is Delhi based Aarti Sabharwal who has her business interest in designing stained glasses.
