Meanwhile, Neetu Kapoor also remembered her father-in-law Raj Kapoor on Instagram. Neetu Kapoor posted a short clip of Raj Kapoor on the platform in which he can be seen giving an interview. The interview was presumably recorded in the 80s. In the video, the veteran actor is talking about life and death. He also speaks about the regrets of his life in the clip. The song Jaane Kahan Gaye Wo Din from his iconic 1970 film Mera Naam Joker can be heard in the background.
"Being old and then death, I suppose it's normal. There are so many regrets I can't tell you. I am full of them. Because what I wanted to be...don't think I have yet anyway reached near it. My regret is that lord when I just started to play, don't take me away. When time...life teaches you...age teaches you and now you feel like somewhere near accepting what the one above has granted you...given you...in abundance all around you...nature to do...to achieve...you feel it is getting late...there is a very little time left. That's one thing to regret...(sic)," Raj Kapoor says in the video.
In her caption, Neetu Kapoor wrote, "Miss you." Neetu Kapoor's daughter Riddhima dropped a red heart emoji in the comment section.
