The RKs party with RDIt was Rahul Dev Burman's 36th birthday party. Panchamda had invited his close friend Randhir Kapoor for the big day, on June 27, 1975. And considering it was Randhir who had helped Burman pave his way into the RK Films camp with the film Dhongee in 1975, inviting Randhir's wife Babita and younger brother Rishi was obvious. In this picture, captured by Shyam Aurangabadkar, we can see the three special guests sharing the frame with RD.
Rishi 'Chintu' Kapoor came as the bearer of the birthday gift. Babita, clad in a transparent chiffon saree and a sleeveless blouse that dipped dangerously at the neckline, looked resplendent as she held hands with the birthday boy RD.
The simplicity of a birthday party in 1970s Bollywood can be spotted in the floral decoration at the door to Burman's residence. Unlike 21st century, a birthday party did not essentially need a fancy location. It did not need blaring music. What it needed was a heart and some really good friends.
Another thing that deserves a mention is Panchamda's open mouth. While everyone is busy smiling at the lens, the music composer is caught with his mouth wide-open, probably singing 'Happy birthday to me'.
