Rishi Kapoor, fondly known as Chintu Ji is no more. He was Bollywood’s forever heart-throb, who never failed to ignite the passion in every role that he played. His chocolate-y face, pleasing aura, energetic dance moves, and the sensuous chemistry with Dimple Kapadia in the movie ‘Bobby’ – everything made us fall in love with the dynamic Rishi Kapoor.
Risha Kapoor passed away from leukemia on Thursday morning, he was undergoing treatment earlier for the same in the US and came back to India in September after recovering from the disease.
Today, when I heard the news of his demise, I couldn’t believe that the shining star of Indian cinema had left us for his heavenly abode, too soon 😞
Apart from his style and charm in the movies, his love story with Neetu Singh is really heartwarming.
Rishi Kapoor once revealed that the two used to spend a lot of time together. Once, Rishi and Neetu were away from each other, he was shooting in Paris, he suddenly started feeling lonely. He then realized his love for Neetu and sent her a telegram that said ‘Ye Sikhni badi yaad aati hai.‘ This was surprising for Neetu but this surely made her realize that Rishi has feelings for her. After opening their hearts to each other, they dated for 5 years before finally getting married.
