Introducing a new street into the infrastructure of the city, when constructed it will be named, the 'Raj Kapoor Crescent'.

With the Videocon d2h IIFA Weekend and the Floriana IIFA Awards making their North American foray into Canada this year, IIFA and the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) have tied up to host a tribute to the patriarch of the Kapoor clan, Shri Raj Kapoor. Titled, 'Raj Kapoor and the Golden Age of Indian Cinema' the festival will run for six weeks at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. The festival will also feature several pieces of memorabilia from RK films including the costumes, cut-outs and props used during the films which will be displayed in the Bell Lightbox atrium during the festival. A series of paintings inspired by Raj Kapoor films by acclaimed Goa-based artist Seema Sardesai will also be showcased in the building.

Several members of the Kapoor Family will be present to witness the opening of the film festival on the 26th of June, 2011 in Toronto. For this reason, the city of Brampton would like to celebrate their presence while honoring the late Raj Kapoor for his contributions to Indian Cinema. The city would also like to induct Shri Raj Kapoor into the Brampton Hall of Fame, having a star placed there in his honor.
