Rishi Kapoor was one of the most loved actors of Bollywood. When he had made his acting debut with the film, Bobby, he had become every girl’s dream man. Just like Rishi Kapoor, his son, Ranbir Kapoor too enjoys a huge fanbase and could make any girl go weak with his dapper looks. Talking about the father-son bond, Ranbir had had always wished to be friendlier with his father, Rishi.
It was on April 30, 2020, when Rishi Kapoor had bid adieu to the world, leaving behind his grieve-stricken family, friends and fans. The 68-year-old-actor was fighting with cancer and had freed himself from the pain and had left for the heavenly abode. Since Rishi Kapoor’s death, his kids, Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had become their mother, Neetu Kapoor’s strongest pillars of strength.
While scrolling through our social media feed, we stumbled upon a throwback picture of the Rishi Kapoor with his family. In the unseen picture, Ranbir looked cute as a munchkin as he sat adorably in Rishi Kapoor’s lap, with his hand on his chin. On the other hand, Neetu Kapoor was seen looking away from the camera, while caressing Riddhima lovingly. Their perfect family picture exuded pure love.
In 2017, when Rishi Kapoor had launched his biography, Khullam Khulla, it was his son, Ranbir, who had expressed his desire to be friendlier with his dad. He had written, “I am closer to my mother. I feel that Dad modeled his relationship with me on the one he shared with his own father. And it is true that I have never crossed a certain line with him. But there is no sense of loss or vacuum here. I do wish sometimes that I could be friendlier with him or even spend more time with him."
Ranbir had also expressed his love for his father. He had written, “I love my father dearly and have immense respect for him. I'm inspired by him and never want to let him down. I know he has only my best interests at heart. He also takes care of the financial side of my work. So we are more connected now. His confidence in me and my work makes me take pride in it. I persevere that much harder because of this. His belief and his encouragement are important to me."
For the uninitiated, it was on September 29, 2018, when Rishi Kapoor had tweeted about his diagnosis. In a 2019 interview, Neetu Kapoor had revealed that when they got to know about Rishi Kapoor’s cancer, Ranbir Kapoor was travelling. When he came back, Neetu had made him sit and had explained the situation, which had left him teary-eyed. For an hour or so, Ranbir was in a denial state, but later, he had composed himself and got down to deal with the situation. It would indeed be hard for any child to see their parents in such a state.
Isn’t Ranbir looking adorable in this picture? What do you think? Let us know.
