With the demise of Rishi Kapoor, Jeetendra feels the void. He says, “I’ve lost a friend, he was more like a brother to me.” He further adds, “I don’t have words right now to express the shock and intensity of emotion in my heart at this point! Even though we met less frequently in the last few years, our friendship has always stood the test of time! An everlasting connection that went far beyond the professional equation we shared as actors from the same fraternity!

It’s very unfortunate that owing to the times I won’t be able to pay my last respects to his family in person, nevertheless, the moments we all shared together shall live on forever in our hearts! RIP Chintu!” Together the duo worked in films like Dosti Dushmani (1986), Khazana (1987), Sheshnaag (1990), and many other films.
