“He’s Gone,” Tweets Amitabh Bachchan
Rishi Kapoor, known for his work in films like Bobby and Chandni, was treated in New York for cancer and returned to Mumbai last year.
He fought a long battle with cancer. Yesterday, his brother Randhir Kapoor confirmed to news agency PTI that the actor had been taken to hospital in the morning. “He is in the hospital. He is suffering from cancer and he has some breathing problem, so he has been admitted to the hospital. He is stable now,” Randhir Kapoor told PTI. Rishi Kapoor belonged to a film dynasty that spans several generations – his father, Raj Kapoor, was among India’s most revered actors and filmmakers.
This is the film fraternity’s second loss in as many days – Irrfan Khan was claimed by cancer yesterday.
May his soul rest in peace 🙏🙏🙏🙏🙏
