Zeba Bakhtiar told an online publication in India that before mobile phones came into our lives, she used to call him on his landline phone to wish him on his birthday and Diwali. And once the trend of WhatsApp started, they communicated on that to wish each other. Also, he used to message her whenever a film of Ranbir Kapoor released and she used to make it a point to go and watch it.

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.
