Pak expresses inability to convert Kapoor Haveli into museum due to lack of funds

PESHAWAR: Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor’s ancestral home, dubbed as the ‘Kapoor Haveli’, here cannot be converted into a museum as promised by the Pakistan Government due to financial constraints, sources said on Saturday.

In 2018, the Pakistan Government decided to convert the ‘Kapoor Haveli’ in Qissa Khwani Bazar in Peshawar in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province into a museum, heeding to a request by Rishi Kapoor who died this week at a hospital in Mumbai.

Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi had assured Rishi Kapoor that the Pakistan Government will convert the actor’s house into a museum. (AGENCIES)
