Post the death of veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, a video of him listening to a young man’s song in a hospital has gone viral. A lot of fans are assuming it was filmed in the days leading to Rishi’s death on Thursday. However, the video was shared on YouTube account ‘Dk Kumar Sanu’ in February.
The video shows Rishi smiling while lying in a hospital bed. Next to him, a man is seen singing a soulful rendition of Tere Dard Se Dil by Kumar Sanu. The song was a part of Rishi’s film Deewana which also starred the late Divya Bharti and Shah Rukh Khan.
While listening to the song, Rishi also appears to be wiping tears off his face with a towel. At the end, he put his hand to the man’s head and said, “You have my blessing. May you get all the success and work hard. Fame and reputation will come to you only if you work hard. With hard work and good luck, everything will be alright.”
