Shah Rukh Khan Pays Tribute To Rishi Kapoor Sharing The Sweetest Memory From The Sets Of ‘Deewana’

Rishi Kapoor lost his battle to Cancer this morning. The actor took his last breath today at 8.45 am leaving us all in tears.

The veteran actor, who was 67 years old was battling with cancer since two years. He went under treatment in US for over a year. He came back and was recently seen in the film, The Body. The actor was cremated at 4pm today at Chandawadi Crematorium in Mumbai. Along with the superstar’s wife Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir Kapoor, other family members and friends also joined for the last rituals of the actor.

Shah Rukh Khan, who made his debut in the Bollywood industry with Deewana also had Rishi Kapoor sharing screen space with him. SRK took to his Twitter recalling the first day on set.

SRK, paying tribute to the Superstar shared two pictures on his Twitter account. One, of the late actor Rishi Kapoor and other is a picture which has a letter written for him. He wrote, “As a young man entering the daunting world of films, I was insecure about the way I looked and afraid that I was not talented enough. The thought of failing meant nothing though, because even if I failed, I would have worked with the greatest actor I knew of – Rishi Sahib. On the first day of the shoot, he sat for my scene to finish after pack up, then with that famously radiant smile on his face he said “yaar tujhme energy bahut hai!”. That day in my head I became an actor!”

“Few months ago I met him and thanked him for accepting me in that movie, he had no idea how he had encouraged me. Few men have the capacity for grace as he did, fewer still have the large heartedness of feeling genuine happiness for the success of others. I will miss him for many things, but more than all of them, I will miss him for his gentle pat on my head every time we met. I will keep it in my heart always, as the ‘Ashirwaad’ that made me who I am today. Will miss you, Sir, with love, gratitude, and immense respect…forever”
