Rishi Kapoor

Neetu Kapoor summed up Rishi Kapoor’s two year long battle against cancer and thanked the constant support she received from the Ambani family in a heartfelt gratitude note. She shared, “For us, as a family, the last two years have been a long journey. There were good days, there were a couple of bad days too.. needless to say it was full of high emotion. But it’s a journey we would not have been able to complete without the immeasurable love and support of the Ambani family. As we’ve gathered our thoughts over the past few days we’ve also tried to find the words to express the gratitude we feel towards the family for the countless ways in which they have seen us safely through this time.”

Neetu Kapoor went on to detail that in the last seven months Rishi Kapoor received great care and attention. “Over the last seven months every member of the family has gone above and beyond in every way possible to care for our beloved Rishi and ensure he experienced as little discomfort as possible. From ensuring he was medically attended to, to making frequent, personal visits to the hospital to shower him with love and attention, to even holding our hand and comforting us when WE were scared,” she expressed.

Rishi Kapoor passed away on April 30 and his family immersed his ashes in Banganga on Sunday. The family also had a quiet prayer meet for the veteran actor, with reportedly only six members in attendance due to the lockdown restrictions.
