It’s been a year since Rishi Kapoor left this world in a vacuum. On her death anniversary today, her family, friends and fans around the world remember and pay tribute to the deceased star. Simi Garewal also remembers the late actor and revealed how his wife Neetu Kapoor mourned him over the phone just a day before his death.
Rishi suffered from cancer and left the world after battling cancer for two long years. He was undergoing treatment for the same in New York.
Speaking to Filmi Beat, Simi Garewal remembered her late friend Rishi Kapoor and said, “I spoke to Neetu for a long time on the phone while she was taking care of Chintu at Mumbai hospital. It was during lockdown last year and she had been isolated and alone in hospital for a month. She cried as she told me how weak he had become. The next day he died.
Actress Karz went on to say, “Chintu loved my sister Amrita very much, and she and I literally prayed for his health at the gurudwara while he was in New York. Neetu knew about it and continued to text me, writing, “Keep praying Simi”. I last met him at the 2019 Bachchans Diwali Party and he walked through the crowd to come and kiss us. He looked so good; he was thin and shiny! We spoke with great affection on both sides that evening. It was our last meeting.
Meanwhile, Neetu Kapoor also shared a heartfelt post on his Instagram remembering her late husband and actor Rishi Kapoor who said, “The whole past year has been heartache and sadness around the world for us maybe. more then that we lost him … Not a day passed when we did not discuss or recall him because he was an extension of our existence .. sometimes his wise advice :: his tricks: his anecdotes !! We have celebrated him all year round with a smile on our lips because he will stay in our hearts forever 🌸 we have accepted that life will never be the same without him !!! But life will go on…. 🙏💕💕💕🌸🌸🌸 # rishikapoor “
