Today morning veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has passed away. This came as a shock because just yesterday Irrfan Khan passed away too. The year 2020 hasn’t been too kind to Bollywood.
The news of Rishi Kapoor’s death was declared by Amitabh Bachchan. He wrote, “He’s GONE..! Rishi Kapoor .. gone .. just passed away.. I am destroyed !” But he later deleted the tweet. Why? I simply don’t know!
Rishi Kapoor’s last tweet was on April 2, 2020
An appeal 🙏 to all brothers and sisters from all social status and faiths. Please don’t resort to violence,stone throwing or lynching. Doctors,Nurses,Medics, Policemen etc..are endangering their lives to save you. We have to win this Coronavirus war together. Please. Jai Hind!🇮🇳

Bollywood stars who just couldn’t believe that in just 2 days they have lost 2 of the best actors are mourning their sudden death. Due to lockdown, nobody is able to attend their funerals too. That is so sad.
Here are some messages from various people…
Kya kahun? Kya likhu kuch samajh mein nahi aaraha hai.Rishi ji ke nidhan se mujhe bahut dukh ho raha hai.Unke jaane se film industry ki bahut haani hui hai. Ye dukh sehena mere liye bahut mushkil hai.Bhagwan unki aatma ko shanti pradan karein.

As a kid, I was enthralled by Rishi Kapoor ji and his trendsetting performances. He was an icon. Still recall watching films only because of him! He was truly one of a kind! Full of life! I pray for his family & loved ones. #RishiKapoor pic.twitter.com/SvB7ybgx5R

Dear #RishiKapoor ji,
Accepting your loss isn't going to be easy. Filling the void you've left in our hearts, isn't going to be easy. We can only imagine the heavens lit up by your presence & ringing with your spry laugh. Because that's who you were, always full of life. R.I.P. pic.twitter.com/f0mcgNwveg
