When Rishi, Kamal Haasan and Ramesh Sippy Crushed On Dimple

It is no secret that  Ramesh  Sippy persuaded Dimple Kapadia to make  a comeback in Saagar  12 years after Bobby when she  gave up her stardom  to be Mrs Rajesh Khanna.

Ramesh Sippy pursued  her relentlessly until Dimple relented. Sippy also roped in  her Bobby co-star  Rishi Kapoor who was in love with her during Bobby, and Kamal Haasan. It helped that both the actors  played besotted lovers. Because that’s how they behaved on location. They would constantly be at Dimple’s beck and  call.

A  source  close to Saagar reveals, “There were three men  on location  who just couldn’t take their eyes  off  Dimple. Director Ramesh Sippy and his two  male leads Kamal Haasan and  Rishi Kapoor.”

However  the source reveals that neither Rishi nor Kamal had any  intention of  getting into anything serious.

“They were both married by then and  devoted to their spouse.  It  was Ramesh Sippy who fell in  love with Dimple. The whole unit could see his growing affection for her and the concentration he  poured on her performance. In every shot he made her look like  a dream,” says a source close Dimple.

The result was a highly lopsided  film .Saagar suffered from a severe case of Dimple-itis. It flopped. And that was the end of the director’s grand  love affair with his  heroine and muse.
