बाल कलाकार से ले कर चार्मिंग युवा, एक परिपक्व अभिनेता और फिर एक वरिष्ठ अभिनेता, आप से राब्ता बना ही रहा ! विरासत में मिली पूंजी को निभाना और उसे अगली पीढ़ी तक अक्षत-अक्षर-अनघ रूप में पहुँचाना मुश्किल काम होता है। आप ने निभाया, दिखाया, सिखाया! विदा! ॐ शांति!💐🙏😪#RishiKapoor pic.twitter.com/jH9qtc565l
