Veteran actor Shatrughan Sinha took to Twitter and in a series of tweets called Raj Kapoor his "greatest motivator, role model" whose films he watched while growing up.

"Though, we hardly have any similarities, watching him has been my greatest learning experience in showbiz. Main Raj Kapoor ka deewana tha, deewana hu, aur deewana rahunga. His penchant for music, grandeur on celluloid have been a visual treat.
