Rishi Kapoor underwent treatment for cancer in the year 2018 and lived in New York for over a year, where he was treated. He was accompanied by his wife and actress Neetu Singh. In February, Rishi Kapoor was hospitalized twice due to health reasons.
In an interview, Neetu told me about the fight against cancer, “My first reaction was really bad, I was broke, my children were broken. We couldn’t know what to do. But, then We thought to ourselves that we have to overcome this challenge. “
At the same time, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said that it is a terrible week for Indian cinema, today another best actor Rishi Kapoor has passed away. An amazing actor, who has many fans in every generation, he will be greatly missed. My condolences to his family, friends, and fans in this hour of grief.
After Rishi Kapoor’s death, a statement has come out from his family. It is written in the statement, Our dear Rishi Kapoor left this world at 8.45 am saying goodbye to this world. Doctors and medical staff say that he used to entertain everyone till the last. He used to be happy even after fighting the disease in these 2 years. His focus was only on family, friends, food, and films. Everyone who met him was shocked to see how the sage never let himself get depressed by the disease.
At the same time, SP President Akhilesh Yadav said that the passing away of multifaceted acting sage Rishi Kapoor ji is the end of an era…. Their humming memories will continue to resonate like this: ‘Come away somewhere …’
Rishi Kapoor made his cinematic debut with the film Bobby. Dimple Kapadia made her Bollywood debut at the age of 16 with the same film. Raj Kapoor saheb had chosen his opposite Dimple Kapadia to launch his son Rishi Kapoor.
‘Bobby’ proved to be a tremendous hit. After the release of Bobby, there was a rumor that Dimple is the daughter of Raj Kapoor and Nargis. Actually, Raj Kapoor and Nargis had an affair. In 1970, Raj Kapoor brought his dream project film, Mera Naam Joker. This film did not run at that time.
The film actually took 5-6 years to complete and as a result, Raj Kapoor’s wife had to sell her jewelry, the entire Kapoor family was drowned in debt but Raj Kapoor launched Rishi Kapoor from Bobby to come out of debt. The film became a massive hit and Raj Kapoor’s days were back again. The popularity of the film Bobby was that special buses ran from towns to theaters of big cities which were called ‘Bobby Bus’.
According to a BBC report, while making Bobby, the big people of the industry, Dharmendra, Pran Sahab, and Rajendra Kumar had told them that they would work without money to re-erect the RK banner. But Raj Kapoor, thanking everyone, said, “My films have flopped at the moment, so my level is down and yours is up.” We will work together when we and your level are equal. “
It would probably not be wrong to call Bobby the first Teenage Love Story of Hindi films in real terms. Pran Sahab in the role of Rishi Kapoor’s carefree father, Premnath as the father who brought life on Bobby, and Durga Khote in the role of Mrs. Brigenza were more than one.
