An icon. In every way. Youâ€™ve left a ceaseless void in this industry and world- somehow even for those who never had the chance of really knowing you. But you have also left with us a plethora of legendary work and innumerable stories of your candour, humour and zest for life thatâ€™ll remain with us forever. Rest in peace ðŸ’”
My mother Kamna Chandra wrote two #RishiKapoor films – Prem Rog & Chandni. Every time we met, he asked about her & told me, yet again, how special these roles were to him. It meant the world to her. Thank you Sir for the warmth & for those incredible performances. #RIP
