Alia Bhatt is heartbroken by the untimely demise of Rishi Kapoor, who died on Thursday morning after a two-year battle with leukaemia. She paid tribute to him with a moving note shared on Instagram and said that the love he gave her was ‘like a warm hug that (she) will always cherish’.

“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!” she wrote in her caption.

Alia also shared two throwback pictures - one of Rishi and his wife Neetu Kapoor, and the other of Rishi and his son Ranbir Kapoor. “Love you,” she captioned the first photo, while the picture of Rishi and Ranbir was captioned, “Beautiful boys.”
