It has been a year since veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor’s untimely death. On his first death anniversary, wife Neetu and daughter Riddhima shared emotional notes, memories and pictures with the late actor.
Neetu Kapoor shared a monochromatic picture from their youth with her Instagram followers. She wrote, “All of last year has been of grief and sadness around the world for us maybe more as we lost him .. Not a day has gone by when we have not discussed or reminisced him as he was an extension of our existence .. sometimes his wise advice:: his wise cracks : his anecdotes !!”
She went on, “We have celebrated him all year with a smile on the lips as he will stay in our hearts forever 🌸 we have accepted life will never be the same without him !!! But life will go on …. 🙏💕💕💕🌸🌸🌸#rishikapoor”.
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni also shared a photo collage with her father on Instagram. She quoted the poet Dorothy Mae Cavendish in her caption, “‘Until we meet again we think about you always, we talk about you still, you have never been forgotten, and you never will. We hold you close within our hearts and there you will remain, to walk and guide us through our lives, until we meet again.’– Dorothy Mae Cavendish”
The heartwarming note also included, “If only i could hear you call me mushk once more …”
Ranbir Kapoor and Alia Bhatt also visited Neetu Kapoor for a puja at their house this morning.
Rishi Kapoor succumbed to cancer on April 30, 2020. The statement confirming his passing read, “He remained jovial and determined to live to the fullest right through two years of treatment across two continents. Family, friends, food and films remained his focus and everyone who met him during this time was amazed at how he did not let his illness get the better of him. He was grateful for the love of his fans that poured in from the world over. In his passing, they would all understand that he would like to be remembered with a smile and not with tears”.
