Trade Analyst Taran Adarsh too tweeted out saying, “RIP #RishiKapoor.”
A day before, Rishi‘s brother Randhir Kapoor confirmed the news of his hospitalisation to News18 and said, “It’s true that he has been admitted to the hospital. He is in Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital. He was not keeping well and had some problem, so we admitted him early this morning.”
When he was further asked if there is an emergency, Randhir clarified and said, “that’s why he has gone to the hospital. But I know that he will be alright. Neetu (Kapoor) is by his side.”
Just last year in September Rishi had returned from his treatment for cancer. He had stationed abroad for his treatment and had been taking chemotherapy sessions. His wife Neetu Kapoor was beside him all throughout.
Our prayers are with his family. Rest in peace, Rishi Kapoor.
