Bollywood lost another extraordinary actor as Rishi Kapoor passed away this morning. The veteran actor had been battling cancer since he was diagnosed with it in 2018. He also underwent treatment in New York for the same and returned back to India in September 2019. After the heartbreaking news of his demise, Bollywood celebrities such as Amitabh Bachchan, Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, and others were devastated and mourned the huge loss. Now, Ranbir Kapoor’s ex-girlfriend Katrina Kaif also took to her social media and condoled Rishi Kapoor’s death.
Katrina Kaif was heartbroken to learn of Rishi Kapoor’s demise. She took to Instagram and shared an old picture of Rishi Kapoor. In her caption, she wrote a short but heartfelt message that read, “Words fall short ....You will be remembered forever RIP.” Meanwhile, Rishi Kapoor’s last rites were performed some time back in the presence of family and a couple of close friends. Neetu Kapoor, Ranbir Kapoor Alia Bhatt, Randheer Kapoor Saif Ali Khan, and Kareena Kapoor Khan, among others, were present at the Chandanwadi crematorium in Mumbai.
After the last rites, Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor returned back home. The actress stood like a rock by Ranbir’s side to get him through what must be a devastating time for him.
Rishi Kapoor’s daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, who was in Delhi, unfortunately, couldn’t be physically present at the funeral as she resides in Delhi. However, Alia could be seen holding a phone in her hand, recording the procession while she broke down. So we are assuming that she was face timing Rishi's funeral to Riddhima.
