Mumbai, April 30 (IANS) –It’s tough at this second for me to even discuss Rishi. It is rather painful to speak about him up to now tense. So many photographs of him are coming in my thoughts.
He actually was one in every of my favorite actors. Over time individuals would ask me which co-star have you ever been a fan of or admired. I’ve all the time stated Rishi Kapoor and Kamal Haasan. They’re my two co-stars from whom I’ve actually learnt so much. I’ve been a grear fan of each of them.
Rishi actually is likely one of the best, most easy and pure actors we had. All by means of his life he had this romantic and loverboy picture. However the number of roles he did — whether or not it’s taking part in a villain or a nasty man or an previous man, any form of position, put him in any position and he would shine in it. He actually was a whole actor and I believe essentially the most shining star of the Kapoor household.
We now have completed fairly a variety of movies collectively. Anyplace on the earth I’ve traveled to, individuals would inform me “Yah vaada raha” is one in every of their favorite songs. Folks would even convey the identical on Insta and Twitter. It has been an immortal creation of R D Burman that includes Rishi Kapoor and myself.
As an individual, he was any person with a tremendous sense of humour. He would all the time reply to texts or WhatsApp messages with one thing whacky or humorous. He was an individual who had a zest for all times. He was energetic. He loved every thing from his work to even being on Twitter! Typically he wrote very significant and nice feedback (on social media).
He actually lived his life to the fullest. I simply want he had not gone so quickly. He nonetheless had a heaps to do. It is rather unhappy.
After I final met him, he was wanting so good and good. We’d textual content one another on events like birthdays, Diwali, New 12 months and different festivals. I had just lately despatched him a message wishing him good well being. Right now, I’m going by means of my previous messages with him, our conversations.
It’s not a straightforward time to speak about him like this however he’s actually an individual I might miss as a good friend, as a co-star. I might typically soar into him asking why are we not doing any movie collectively and we might have a banter about it. He would typically say, maine ek do movie ki, achha position tha, mujhe laga tu karegi nahi!
I don’t assume he was able to go. I don’t assume that is the proper time. It have to be so very traumatic for his youngsters Riddhima and Ranbir. I can’t think about what his total household should eb going by means of. Sadly, that is such a time that I can’t even go and meet his household, share their grief and pay my final respect to him. I’m sitting alone at residence and fascinated about him.
He’ll all the time be immortal. He has given such a incredible physique of labor. He was excellent in each position. I want I may spend some extra time with him after he got here again from New York. After I met him a number of months in the past, he advised me tu ghar nahi ayee mujhse milne ke liye! He was an previous good friend and we may inform one another issues as it’s! I remorse not assembly him just lately. God bless him and his household. He was an amazing actor and can all the time be remembered for his roles! (IANS)
