Last year today, Bollywood’s original chocolate boy, Rishi Kapoor left for a heavenly abode after battling with cancer for two years. On his first death anniversary, his family and friends miss him. Many celebrities even took to social media to pay their tributes to Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor.
During a recent interaction with Pinkvilla, Rishi’s sister Rima Jain said that she misses her brother and that too much has happened in their family in the recent past.
She said, “We miss him, too much has happened in our lives. His going away has also created a great void in our lives. I have lost two brothers (Rishi Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor), and one brother (Randhir Kapoor) is in hospital, so I am not in a very good frame. Just pray, and I hope his soul rests in peace. I just miss him.”
Rishi Kapoor passed away on April 30, last year and many members of the Kapoor family have been sharing memories and paying homage. This is also a troubling time for the family as Randhir Kapoor has been admitted to a hospital after he tested positive.
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.
Earlier today, Neetu Kapoor took to Instagram and shared a black and white throwback picture. In the picture, she can be seen dressed in a saree and jewellery as Rishi is probably telling her something.
The actress remembered her late husband and recalled how ‘all of last year has been of grief and sadness’. She also mentioned how the family misses Rishi Kapoor each day.
