RIP Rishi Kapoor: Karan Johar pens down a heartfelt note, says 'A piece of my growing years has been snatched away'

As the veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor passed away in the early hours this morning, the Bollywood industry is mourning the loss. The news came a day after the saddening news of the demise of Irrfan Khan came out. Many celebrities are still in shock and are unable to believe the loss. Meanwhile, Karan Johar pens down a heartfelt message for Rishi Kapoor. The producer-director shared a picture of Rishi from his young time and says that it feels like his childhood is gone.
 
Karan wrote, "I was 7 years old and overheard that my parents are invited to see a preview of “Duniya meri Jeb mein”. It starred my favourite Rishi kapoor...it was school night and my very particular mother refused to let me come with her. I threw such a tantrum because I couldn’t bear the fact that I was being disallowed from seeing a Chintu Kapoor film. The parents finally succumbed. I went with stars in my eyes...like I had every time I saw him on celluloid...he was my HERO! The very handsome, the exceptionally charming, the eternally Romantic RISHI KAPOOR. My childhood was dedicated to watching him sing his songs with abandon, wearing his printed sweaters and dancing in my bedroom. Doing the dafliwalle routine with a dinner plate in front of my school friends...and finally nearly fainting when I met him for the first time in Cochin on the sets of my father's film DUNIYA. I looked at him like he was a monument that I wanted to keep marvelling at. When I directed him in SOTY I shed a tear silently after he gave his first shot. A major childhood dream was actualised. Today I feel like an irreplaceable void has crept into my existence...a piece of my growing years has been snatched away... I am honoured to love him...to know him...to have a drink and reminisce with him... I still will .. how can the romance of Indian Cinema ever leave us? Never. Dard -e Dil....but this legendary legacy will live on! I LOVE YOU RISHI KAPOOR!"
 
Many other Bollywood celebrities including Akshay Kumar, Ajay Devgn, Shahid Kapoor, Taapsee Pannu and others paid their tribute to the actor.
