Amidst the coronavirus pandemic, the Indian film industry lost 2 gems in 2 days. Just yesterday Irrfan Khan passed away due to colon infection, and this morning everyone woke up to the sad demise of veteran star Rishi Kapoor. The 67-year-old star was rushed to Kokilaben Hospital last night where he took his last breath.

Last night Randhir Kapoor released an official statement, he stated, "It's true that he has been admitted to the hospital. He is in Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital. He was not keeping well and had some problem, so we admitted him early this morning,"

Rishi Kapoor was diagnosed with cancer back in 2018, for which he spent 11 months in New York, and in September 2019 he returned to India. Even after he returned he often visited the hospital for a regular check-up. A few months ago post his return from New York, Rishi gave an update on his health, he said, “I feel very fresh and geared up to do any kind of work. My batteries are all charged and I’m looking forward to facing the camera. I just hope I haven’t forgotten acting. Right now, I don’t know if my work will be welcomed or if people are going to trash me. When I was going through treatment, I had a few blood transfusions. And I told Neetu that I hope with the new blood, I haven’t forgotten acting.”

A post shared by Asim Riaz (@asimriaz77.official) on

In an official statement released from Rishi Kapoor’s family, they wrote, “Our dear Rishi Kapoor passed away peacefully at 8:45am IST in hospital today after a two-year battle with leukemia. The doctors and medical staff at the hospital said he kept them entertained to the last. 

He remained jovial and determined to live to the fullest right through two years of treatment across two continents. Family, friends, food and films remained his focus and everyone who met him during this time was amazed at how he did not let his illness get the better of him. 

He was grateful for the love of his fans that poured in from the world over. In his passing, they would all understand that he would like to be remembered with a smile and not with tears. 

In this hour of personal loss, we also recognise the world is going through a very difficult and troubled time. There are numerous restrictions around movement and gathering in public. We would like to request all his fans and well-wishers and friends of the family to please respect the laws that are in force. 

He would not have it any other way.”
