Rishi Kapoor succumbed to leukemia on April 30, 2020. While everyone has said highly about the actor and how he was the livewire of any party or social gathering, Asha Bhosle too poured her heart out about the loss of Bollywood’s true gem.
Asha Bhosle spoke to a leading daily recently and in her interview she got emotional about Rishi Kapoor’s death. She said that losing him was like losing her fourth child, as the singer was close to the actor who has entertained for generations. She said, “I broke down when I heard the news of his death. Mujhe aisa laga ki mere teen bachche hain, unme chautha bachcha ye tha jo chala gaya. I haven’t spoken to any of his family members yet, as I don’t feel that it would be right to call them at this time. Par unko pata hain ki mera pyaar bahut tha uss par.”
The singer spoke praises about him and said that in our industry there’s nobody like Rishi Kapoor, as he was the true artiste. Excerpts from the interview, “Industry mein bahut bade artistes hain, lekin Rishi jaisa koi artiste nahin hai. He could dance well, was a great romantic hero and played tragic parts very well, too.”
As we all know that Rishi Kapoor was a big foodie and used to love various cuisines. Asha Bhosle used to cook for him at times. But she says that now she’s lost him, she will not cook his favourite dish and neither even eat it, “I don’t think I will ever be able to cook his favourite dishes. Usko jo pasand tha, main banaungi bhi nahin aur khaungi bhi nahin.”
Clearly, the loss is immense for everyone – his friends and for movie-lovers.
