अपने कुशल अभिनय कौशल से देशवासियों के दिलों पर राज करने वाले महान कलाकार #ऋषि_कपूर जी के निधन का बहुत ही दुःखद समाचार प्राप्त हुआ।
भारतीय सिनेमा के लिए यह अपूरणीय क्षति है। ईश्वर दिवंगत आत्मा को शांति व परिवारजनों को यह आघात सहन करने की शक्ति प्रदान करें।

A childhood icon, so bubbly and one of the friendliest people I have met. Always waved to you first. And what a second wind as an actor! In grief. #RishiKapoor
