In his autobiography 'Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored', veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor has admitted to buying a Best Actor award for 'Bobby' in 1973 and then feeling guilty for a long time.

At the recently held book launch, Rishi Kapoor said, "I was all of 21 when I had a big start. I was so naive, I was such a brat when I used to get so much money. One day, a guy comes up to me and says he can get me this award and so, I said, why not."

Rishi Kapoor said he felt extremely guilty after that episode.

"The money could not have gone there and I could have won it on my merit. But I have this guilt in me thinking that I bought the award," said Rishi Kapoor.

"It's like a confession, hence it found its way in the book," said the actor.

The book 'Khullam Khulla: Rishi Kapoor Uncensored' has been co-written by Meena Iyer.
