Bollywood veteran Rishi Kapoor passed away in Mumbai with wife Neetu Kapoor by his side on Thursday. This heartbreaking news added to the stress and depression that was prevailing with the death of Irrfan Khan and increasing cases of coronavirus.
When many of us still feeling the loss of Irrfan Khan, another news shook the entire country. After Irrfan lost his battle of life to cancer, it’s Rishi Kapoor who left us at the age of 67.
Broken by the demise of his dear friend, Amitabh Bachchan took to social media to break the disheartening news. He wrote:
“Rishi Kapoor… gone… passed away. I am destroyed !”
It was in 2018, that Rishi Kapoor was diagnosed with cancer for the first time. In order to fight his cancer struggle, the actor spent almost a year in New York to undergo treatment. After recovering from cancer, Rishi Kapoor returned to India in September 2019.
Post his return, Kapoor’s health had been in focus frequently. In his cancer battle, one person that never left his side was his wife – Neetu Singh.
At IFORHER, while we are heartbroken with the loss of Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan, we pray for strength for their families at this tough time.
