Google on Sunday paid homage to legendary Bollywood actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor on his 90th birth anniversary by dedicating a special doodle to him.

The doodle shows Bollywood’s “Show Man” in his avatar from 1951 classic Awara, carrying a Google placard on his shoulder.

The backdrop of the doodle is a pictorial representation of the film’s most-remembered romantic rain scene featuring the actor and Nargis Dutt, in the song Pyar Hua Ikrar Hua where both are sharing an umbrella.

The two-time National Award winner was a noted actor, director and producer. He did some of the most memorable Hindi films of all times like Sangam, Mera Naam Joker, Chori Chori, Shree 420 and Anari, among others.

Kapoor suffered from asthma in his later years and died of complications related to the disease in 1988 at the age of 63.
