A regular Thursday morning turned one of shock as the nation woke up to the news of Rishi Kapoor's death after a two-year-long battle with leukemia. Now after several heartfelt posts from friends and family, Rishi's son-in-law, Bharat Sahni, has written a condolence message for him. “Will never forget the love you gave me. You taught me so much in the little time I had with you. Simply broken today. Lost for words. Love you and will miss you a lot. R.I.P. Papa," wrote Bharat, who is married to Rishi's daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni.
In the emotional post, he also shared a series of photos of Rishi posing with the family, particularly his granddaughter, Samara.
Meanwhile, Riddhima and Bharat could not make it to the funeral, because of the nationwide coronavirus lockdown. Now, both of them have been granted permission to travel to Mumbai by road. Riddhima also wrote on Instagram, “Papa I love you I will always love you - RIP my strongest warrior I will miss you everyday I will miss your FaceTime calls everyday! I wish I could be there to say goodbye to you ! Until we meet again papa I love you - your Mushk forever."
Rishi passed away at Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai at the age of 67. The actor complained of breathing problem on Wednesday morning and was later diagnosed with mild fever and symptomatic chest infection. Rishi's wife Neetu Kapoor was by his side in the hospital.
