Located in Mohalla Khudadad near the historic Qissa Khwani Bazaar, the residences of Bollywood's bigwigs Raj Kapoor and Dilip Kumar - albeit torn - stand tall and proud.

The latter's house was declared protected heritage by the Directorate of Archaeology and Tourism in 2013 and later a protected monument, under the Antiquity Act 1997, whereas the Kapoor Haveli in Mohallah Dhaki Munawar Shah, inside the walled city, was also said to be converted into a museum by end of the year 2012.

But despite the status granted to them, they have existed in a dismal with no restoration or preservation effort, until recently, when the residences were ordered by the government to be turned into museums.
