Inspired by the Walk of Fame featuring famous Hollywood celebrities in Los Angeles, UTV earlier this year worked on a proposal of instituting a similar concept, Walk of the Stars, along the kilometre stretch of the populace favourite Bandra bandstand in Mumbai. Realizing this concept of honouring cinematic legends, a choice collection of artefacts, names, statues et al is being established overlooking Mumbai's hotspot Promenade in the suburb of Bandra.

It was in honour of the line of her forefathers, whose contribution to Indian cinema has been unparalleled, that actress Kareena Kapoor was seen at the occasion along with father Randhir Kapoor. In a public address after unveiling the brass statue of industry's forerunning visionary Raj Kapoor, Bebo spoke with pride of her family's standing in Bollywood, of how acting was in their veins and blood, and how this was an ideal manner to mark the occasion of 100 years of cinema. She shared light family secrets, including that of her grandfather's partiality for Karishma Kapoor's blue eyes like his own, as opposed to Bebo's green like her own father. Daddy Randhir, in his address, was heard to add remarks about Kapoor family's legacy.

The UTV Walk of the Stars showcases 5 other statues apart from that of Raj Kapoor; those being of Shammi Kapoor, Dev Anand, Rajesh Khanna, Amitabh Bachchan and Dilip Kumar.

Also present at the unveiling was realist director Madhur Bhandarkar, whose current venture Heroine stars Bebo in the central protagonist role, opposite Arjun Rampal.
