Now, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi today tweeted his condolences after veteran actor Rishi Kapoor died following a long fight with an illness. PM Modi said Rishi Kapoor "was a powerhouse of talent".
In 2018, Rishi Kapoor was diagnosed with cancer for the first time, following which the actor was in New York for nearly a year to undergo treatment. He returned to India in September 2019 after recovering.
However, the actor faced a cancer relapse and succumbed to death. Rishi is survived by his wife Neetu Kapoor and kids Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahani.
