Actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas penned down a heartfelt tribute for late actor Rishi Kapoor, calling him ‘the keeper of hearts, who ushered in a new era of romance in Hindi movies’. She called his loss the ‘end of an era’ in Bollywood.
His charisma was in his extraordinary smile, one that made his fans go weak in the knees. And when he danced, he made us all want to jump up and join him.
