Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has revealed he was given the nickname Chintu after a poem, which his elder brother Randhir used to recite in school.
The "Agneepath" actor, 63, who is the son of legendary filmmaker-actor Raj Kapoor, is set to appear on "The Anupam Kher Show : Kucch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai" where he will talk about his childhood.
"It was something created ever since infancy. When my brother Randhir Kapoor was in school, he found a poem that had the following lines: 'Chote Se Chintu Miya, Lambi Si Pooch.
Jaha Jaye Chintu Miya, Waha Jaye Pooch'.
"Since I was the youngest and newly born, Chintu became my nickname," Rishi said in a statement.
The episode featuring the actor will be air on October 18 on Colors.
