By Times of India – When Rishi blessed Ranbir-Alia’s jodi Rishi Kapoor passed away today, after a two year long battle with cancer. The veteran actor was constantly supported by his wife Neetu and Ranbir Kapoor during this difficult time. Ranbir’s lady love Alia Bhatt recently reached the hospital and has been a pillar of support to the family. Back in 2018, when Rishi Kapoor was asked about Ranbir and Alia’s jodi, the veteran actor had said, “It’s Ranbir’s life. Who he wants to get married to is his prerogative. Neetu likes her, I like her, Ranbir likes her. Get it? I can’t be judgmental. After all, my uncles Shammiji (Shammi Kapoor) and Shashiji (Shashi Kapoor) and I chose our life partners. Ranbir is entitled to choose his.”
Rishi was fond of Alia, describing their relationship a source had told ETimes, “Alia had his blessings and that meant the world to Ranbir. Alia’s warmth, her energy and spunk cheered up Rishi. She stayed by Ranbir’s side for the last three weeks, not leaving him even for a minute.”
Rishi Kapoor’s last rites will reportedly be done at Chandanwadi crematorium in Mumbai. His daughter Riddhima, who stays in Delhi, has taken special permission to travel amidst this lockdown for Rishi Kapoor’s funeral.
