Flamboyant, charming and all things fun, that is how actor Rishi Kapoor can be remembered as. The actor who stole the hearts of millions with her energetic and romantic self on screen wasn't just Bollywood's favourite, but of Cupid too. Rishi, after kickstarting his acting career with Mera Naam Joker in 1970, met the gorgeous Neetu Kapoor (nee Singh) four years later on the sets of Puttanna Kanagal's Zehreela Insaan. Since then, the two not just lit up the screen with their magnetic presence but also sent all into a zone of happiness by announcing their marriage in 1980. The couple was not just celebrated for their films, but also for their off-screen magic. With Amar Akbar Anthony, Doosra Aadmi, Khel Khel Mein, Rafoo Chakkar and others to their merit, fans of the couple were naturally elated. Rishi and Neetu soon became parents to Riddhima Kapoor (Sahni) and Ranbir Kapoor. The couple, in the last decade, featured in Do Dooni Char (2010) and in son Ranbir's Besharam (2013).
Forty years post Rishi's and Neetu's marriage, the magic hadn't faded a bit. Today, as we remember Rishi, who breathed his last yesterday at the age of 67, let's take a look at some of the priceless moments he shared with wife Neetu and children Riddhima and Ranbir.
