Bollywood lost two gems - Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor, on April 29 and 30 respectively.
This morning, news came in that Rishi Kapoor had lost his battle with cancer. The actor breathed his last at the HN Reliance Hospital in Mumbai, breaking millions of hearts.
Rishi Kapoor’s Last Rites
Survived by wife Neetu Kapoor, son Ranbir Kapoor and daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, Rishi Kapoor's last rites will take place at the Chandanwadi Crematorium in Marine Lines, Mumbai. For those unversed, Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan worked together in the film D-Day. But no one thought that Rishi and Irrfan will have an unfortunate thing in common, which will shock their fans.
Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor Couldn’t Meet Their Moms
Well, Irrfan Khan's mother Saeeda Begum died on April 25, 2020 in Jaipur. Sadly, due to the current lockdown and his ill-health, Irrfan couldn't meet his mother one last time. The actor saw her through a video call. The same thing had happened with Rishi Kapoor when his mother Krishna Raj Kapoor passed away on October 1, 2018 due to a cardiac arrest. Chintu ji, too, couldn't attend his mother's funeral in Mumbai. He was in the US for his cancer treatment. In fact, Rishi Kapoor had headed to New York on September 29, just two days before his mother passed away. Isn't it shocking and disturbing?
Rishi Kapoor’s Relations With Bollywood Celebs
After finishing treatment in the US, Rishi Kapoor came back to Mumbai in September 2019. He was always known for his outspoken nature and outstanding acting skills. He shared a good relationship with all the stars in the film industry, except maybe Salman Khan. When he was in America for treatment, many celebs like Alia Bhatt, Priyanka Chopra, Sonali Bendre and others met him.
Bollywood On Rishi Kapoor’s Death
Like Irrfan Khan, Rishi Kapoor's death was also a shock for the film fraternity. Celebs like Amitabh Bachchan, Rajinikanth, Salman Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonam Kapoor and others mourned his death.
Rishi Kapoor was last seen in Emraan Hashmi-starrer The Body, which was released on December 13, 2019.
RIP Rishi Kapoor!
