“I grew up loving them and am so privileged to know them….strong…resilient and full of positivity!”, wrote filmmaker Karan Johar as he shared a picture with his ‘favourite couple of Indian Cinema’, Rishi and Neetu Kapoor.
Karan Johar, who has always expressed how awestruck he is with the versatility of Rishi Kapoor, recently visited the veteran actor, during a trip to New York ahead of his 47th birthday.
Remember, Karan and Rishi have worked together in films such as Agneepath and Student Of The Year. And it was after having worked with the Bobby actor that Karan had earlier tweeted – “Such an honour to work with Rishi Kapoor… his versatility is unreal… Rauf lala to his portrayal of Dean Yoginder Vasisht in SOTY… genius”.
Neetu Kapoor shared the same picture with the caption – ‘He gave the tightestttt Hug and the longesttt kiss n said half of this love is from his mom Hiroo.’
From the Ambanis to leading Bollywood celebrities – everyone has paid a visit to Rishi and Neetu since the time they moved to New York for Rishi’s treatment, in 2018.
While the duo’s son Ranbir Kapoor frequently visits his parents, his girlfriend Alia Bhatt spent New Year’s Eve with the Kapoor family.
That’s not all, Ranbir’s ex-girlfriend, Deepika Padukone also made it a point to go see Rishi and Neetu, while she was in New York. Deepika had later shared a picture of a beautiful bracelet that she received as a present from Ranbir’s parents.
Rishi Kapoor, who battled cancer in New York for almost a year now, was recently declared cancer-free. When he will be returning to India, however, is yet to be disclosed.
