Somehow, we are still not able to believe that Rishi ji had left us 'forever'. It seems like a bad dream and soon, Rishi ji's Twitter handle will be abuzz with a new tweet. Uhmm, but in reality, it will never happen! And this fact will always haunt us that we lost the brightest star of Bollywood industry without any final goodbyes.
On May 5, 2020, Rishi ji's daughter, Riddhima took to her Instagram story and shared an unseen picture from her father's life. She posted an Instagram story of Rishi Kapoor with his mother, Krishna Raj and captioned it as "Reunited with his most favourite person."

Ranbir and I now call this "Dinner with Daddy" - like Koffee with Karan! And despite his busy schedule, he'd see to it that every Sunday, he would take the family out for a meal - lunch or dinner. No matter how tired or exhausted he'd be from shooting, he'd never forget. Love you, papa."
