It was on April 30, 2020, when the Kapoor family had announced the news of Rishi Kapoor’s death, leaving their family, friends and the entire nation in disbelief. While, for us, it is a piece of news that had an everlasting impact, but for the family, this is the hardest truth that they will have to accept. The truth is that the person leaves, but the memories prevail and it is what we can cherish for the rest of our lives. Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor’s daughter, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni lives in Delhi, and since the nation is under the lockdown, she wasn’t able to attend her father’s funeral. Since then, the doting daughter, Riddhima and her husband, Bharat Sahni have been remembering Rishi ji and sharing their loving memories on social media.
On May 03, 2020, Riddhima Kapoor took to her Instagram stories to share two unseen pictures of her late father, Rishi Kapoor. The first story has a picture of her late grandmother, Krishna Raj Kapoor with her ‘papa’ Rishi Kapoor with a heart emoticon atop it. The other story is throwback family picture of the times when Riddhima and Ranbir Kapoor were kids, with young Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor. Take a look at it.
Rishi Kapoor’s son-in-law, Bharat Sahni is also missing him immensely as he penned an emotional note for his late father-in-law. He took to his Instagram stories to share a picture from Banganga, where the Kapoor family had gone to immerse Rishi ji’s ashes.
