Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi has mourned the death of the Bobby actor. Modi stated that he is quite anguished by Rishi's demise. Rishi was passionate about films and India's progress.

"Multifaceted, endearing, and lively...this was Rishi Kapoor Ji. He was a powerhouse of talent. I will always recall our interactions, even on social media. He was passionate about films and India’s progress. Anguished by his demise. Condolences to his family and fans. Om Shanti," tweeted Modi a while ago.

He entertained several generations of Indians throughout his career. What a terrible loss. My condolences to the grieving family. May God bless his soul."
Former Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Omar Abdullah tweeted, "From Bobby to Karz to Zamane Ko Dikhana Hai, your movies & some of the dialogues have been such an integral part of my childhood. You made a little hut in Gulmarg an iconic place with one song. Farewell, @chintskap & thank you for the memories. #riprishikapoor"
