The world is truly depleted with #RishiKapoor ji gone. Deepest condolences to Ranbir and Neetuji, and the whole Kapoor family.@chintskap Sir's 2nd innings was definitive of a new wave in Indian cinema. To lose both @irrfank & him in 2 days feels like a hard kick in the chest.— VISHAL DADLANI (@VishalDadlani) April 30, 2020
The actor returned to India last September after undergoing treatment for cancer in the US for almost a year. In February, he was hospitalised twice.
