Late actor Nargis is still counted among the most beautiful actors in the Hindi film industry. In her film career, she gave a series of hit films. Her pairing with showman Raj Kapoor was the biggest hit of all time. Their chemistry on screen was so tremendous, that its effect was visible behind the screen as well. The couple dated for a long period. Nargis’ pairing with Raj Kapoor was formed in the 40s, but by the 60s, this lovely couple called it quits. The actors who gave 16 films together were not seen working with each other again. But what went wrong?

Both of them were seen together for the first time in the film ‘Aag’ and this film was a huge success. Then the pairing of Raj Kapoor and Nargis became a hit on screen. And then she appeared in many memorable hit films of RK Studio. They together gave many hit films including Andaz, Awara, Barsaat, Aag, Aah, and Shree 420.

Why did the Raj-Nargis pair break up?

The relationship between Raj Kapoor and Nargis lasted for almost 9 years. The actress wanted to settle down after dating the star actor, but Raj Kapoor already had a wife and children. There came a time when Nargis’s patience gave up. The actress also started feeling that she was no longer getting the same importance in Raj Kapoor’s films as before. Nargis was the lead heroine in the film Shree 420, she was given a non-glamorous role. However, her role as Nadiri stole all the limelight.
