Nothing can ever heal the pain of losing someone, and every occasion without them becomes a reminder of their absence. No matter how strong we act, but the pain of not seeing the most important person of our life again will always haunt us. On every festival, their absence creates a void that stays there forever. And the Kapoor clan is going through the same pain after the legendary actor, Rishi Kapoor's untimely demise.

On April 30, 2020, we had gotten the heartbreaking news of legendary actor, Rishi Kapoor's demise in the morning. For a second, no one had believed it, but Amitabh Bachchan's official tweet had confirmed the sad news. Rishi ji had given a tough fight to cancer for the past two years. And since then, the Kapoor clan is trying to get used to a life without the man of the house. Rishi Kapoor's children, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni and Ranbir Kapoor have become pillars of strength for their mother, Neetu Kapoor, but there are days when they also break.
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni often shares her truest emotions on her Instagram handle and posts pictures of her parents. On November 13, 2020, Riddhima took to her Instagram handle and posted a throwback picture of Rishi ji with his granddaughter, Samara Sahni from last year's Diwali party. In the picture, we can see Samara posing with Rishi ji and looking adorable in red ethnic wear. Riddhima captioned the picture with a heart and a broken heart emoji atop it. Check it out below:
On November 12, 2020, Neetu ji had boarded her first flight for the shooting of an upcoming film after Rishi ji's demise. The actress had shared a picture from the runway and thanked her children, Riddhima and Ranbir for helping her fight this difficult phase. Neetu ji had written, "My first flight, in these scary times !! Nervous for this journey! While Kapoor Sahab, you aren’t here holding my hand, I know you are with me. RnR thank you for encouraging me to do this. #JugJugJiyo. P.S. - We are all Covid tested and safe, hence removed mask while taking picture."

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." (Don't Miss: Riddhima Kapoor Sahni Misses Her Dad, Late Rishi Kapoor, Shares Photo From Last year's Diwali Party)
