Rishi Kapoor died on Thursday after a two-year-long battle with cancer. Amitabh Bachchan, wrote a moving eulogy post for Rishi Kapoor on his blog on Thursday. "During his time of diagnosis and his treatment he never ever lamented his condition. It was always, 'see you soon, just a routine visit to the hospital, I'll be back shortly'. Joie de vivre, the exuberant enjoyment of life, was a gene he inherited from his father, the Legend, the Ultimate Showman, the Iconic Raj Kapoor. I never visited him in hospital, I never wanted to see distress on his smiling cherubic face. But I am certain, when he went, he must have gone with a gentle smile," read an excerpt from his post.
Rishi Kapoor was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 after which he underwent treatment in New York for 11 months. He returned to India in September last year. He got admitted to the hospital twice in February this year.
Rishi Kapoor is survived by his wife Neetu, son Ranbir, daughter Riddhima and other members of the vast Kapoor clan.
