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.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) April 30, 2020
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 & thankyou for the memories. #riprishikapoor— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) April 30, 2020
