The yesteryear star’s untimely demise left the entire country in deep shock. He was 67 at the time of his death. Rishi battled leukemia (blood cancer) for two years and died at Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai on April 30, 2020.

Just a while ago, Rishi and Neetu Kapoor's firstborn, daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni took to Instagram to share a photo of her late father on his birth anniversary. Sharing a picture of the actor, she wrote, "We miss you so much especially today but 'with a cheer, not a tear, in Our eye' (white heart emoticon) Love you Papa". Meanwhile, earlier today, Neetu shared a special post for her late husband on social media and captioned her post, “Happy birthday,” and added a heart emoji.
