Sanjeev Kumar and Kumkum appear in the 1968 Bollywood movie Raja Aur Runk, helmed by Kotayya Pratyagatma.
The Prince, as well as the Pauper, is indeed an Indian version of Mark Twain’s 1881 book.
The narrative of Raja Aur Runk is about a royal and a beggar. Two infants, one from the monarch, Raja Sahib, and the other with a poor young man, Hariya, were born that day at the very same time (Ajit). The monarch is overjoyed with the delivery of Yuvraj, the successor to the kingdom, but Hariya is sceptical regarding their son Raja’s existence.
The kids appear to be similar as they people age, yet their lives, as well as upbringing, are markedly different. Raja sneaks away from family one day finds himself at the castle, wherein he encounters Yuvraj.
The lads realise how unlike their backgrounds are. Yuvraj disguises himself as Raja as departs the mansion, enticed by the prospect of seeing the society beyond. They are already attempting but failing, to acclimatise to your new names. Raja’s mom (Nirupa Roy) and sibling Sujjo (Nazima) are unhappy about his new attitude, as well as the monarch is worried about Yuvraj. Sudhir (Sanjeev Kumar) plays a key role in this riveting tale of plot twists.
Sanjeev Kumar, Nazima, and child star Mahesh Kothare give excellent performances in just this Prasad Productions costumes play. Laxmikant Pyarelal wrote the movie’s soundtrack, which was accompanied by Anand Bakshi’s words.
