Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar wishes that the story of Subhash Ghai’s 1980 blockbuster Karz turns out to be true in real-life as she wants veteran actor Rishi Kapoor to come back.
Rishi died on Thursday at HN Reliance hospital in Mumbai after a two year long battle with leukaemia.
In an innocent and heartfelt tweet, Mangeshkar said Rishi’s character was reincarnated after his death in Karz and she wants the same to happen in reality as well.
Rishi ji aap bahut yaad aarahe ho aur hamesha yaad aate rahoge. Ye sochna pagalpan sa lagega magar kash aisa ho sake ki jaise aap Karz film mein wapas aaye the waise asal zindagi mein wapas aajayein to kitna accha ho https://t.co/2PYzq48WgF

“Rishi ji we are missing you so much and we will always remember you. It will be foolish of me to think this but I wish you come back to life like how you did in your film Karz. It will be so nice to see you back,” the 90-year-old singer said.
Lata Mangeshkar also posted a video of Karz song “Om Shanti Om” along with her post.
Karz is about a man (Rishi), who is murdered by his wife, only to be reborn as a new person and takes his revenge from her.
On Thursday, Lata Mangeshkar had shared a black-and-white photo of Rishi as a toddler to mourn his death.

“A few days back Rishi had sent me this picture of us. I am remembering all those days and the conversations we had. I am short of words. What should I say? I can’t express the pain through words. I am in immense sorrow due to the demise of Rishi Kapoor. The film industry has suffered a huge loss due to his departure. It is very difficult for me to go through this pain. May God grant peace to his soul,” she had said.
