Raj Babbar, who studied in Delhi’s National School of Drama in 1972, had to face a lot of problems in the initial days. Even after many attempts, he did not get any work for 5 years. He then made his Bollywood debut with the 1977 film ‘Kissa Kursi Ka’. However, Raj Babbar was truly recognized by the ‘scales of justice’.
The scales of justice made the superstar overnight
In the film Insaf Ka Scales, Raj Babbar played the role of a rapist. Which was to be shot with famed actress Zeenat Aman. Raj Babbar was very nervous to do it. Because he was new in the industry and Zeenat was quite famous and big heroin. But this role proved lucky for Raj Babbar and it was this role that brought him to the list of superstars overnight. His strong acting was well received by the audience.
Smita had left her home for Patil

But shortly after giving birth to her son, Smita died of an infection.
Love life was full of contrast
