An actor who was full of talent and versatility. 2020 is turning out to be a very sad year. My condolences to his family, friends and fans. Rest in peace Chintu ji.

Abhishek represented his family at Rishi’s funeral, because the coronavirus lockdown didn’t make it possible to have a large gathering. He was joined by Rishi’s son, Ranbir, his girlfriend Alia Bhatt, mom Neetu, and other members of the family such as Kareena Kapoor Khan and her husband, Saif Ali Khan.
Alia had written in an Instagram post, “What can I say. About this beautiful man... who brought soo much love and goodness into my life. Today, everyone speaks of the legend that is Rishi Kapoor... and though I’ve known him like that all my life... for the past two years I’ve known him as a friend, a fellow Chinese food lover, a total cinema lover, a fighter, a leader, a beautiful storyteller, an extremely passionate tweeter and a father! In these past two years the love I have received from him is like a warm hug that I will always cherish!”
Rishi was diagnosed in 2018 and spent a year undergoing treatment in New York City. His death came a day after that of Irrfan Khan, who had been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour.
