Neetu Singh penned an emotional note of Rishi Kapoor saying ‘end of our story.’ The actor posted a throwback picture of the Karz actor with a drink in his hand and a bright smile on his face. She said, “End of our story.” Neetu and Rishi Kapoor did some fantastic films together including the iconic Kabhi Kabhi.
Rishi Kapoor passed away at the age of 67 in a Mumbai hospital suffering from cancer which he was diagnosed with two years ago. “He remained jovial and determined to live to the fullest right through two years of treatment across two continents.”
The actor’s final final rites were held on Thursday afternoon, in the presence of his family members and a few close friends including Alia Bhatt, filmmaker Ayan Mukerji and Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan.
Here’s the full statement:
“Our dear Rishi Kapoor passed away peacefully at 8:45 am IST in hospital today after a two-year battle with leukemia. The doctors and medical staff at the hospital said he kept them entertained to the last.
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.
In this hour of personal loss, we also recognise the world is going through a very difficult and troubled time. There are numerous restrictions around movement and gathering in public. We would like to request all his fans and well-wishers and friends of the family to please respect the laws that are in force.
He would not have it any other way.”
