Walking down the memory lane, Zeba Bakhtiar remembered her first meeting with Rishi Kapoor. She said that the first day she worked with Rishi Kapoor was for a screen shoot and a photo shoot for Henna. She was totally new and unfamiliar with everything, so she was very, very nervous. But he made it quite comfortable for her and encouraged her a lot, so much so that in just 48 hours, she felt like the Kapoor family is her family.

Rishi Kapoor breathed his last on 30th April in a private hospital in Mumbai. He was diagnosed with cancer in 2018. The actor underwent treatment for the same in a hospital in the USA and returned India towards the end of 2019. He is survived by his wife Neetu Kapoor and children, Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor.
