Amitabh Bachchan had shared the frame with both the actor. From ‘Naseeb’ to ‘Kabhi Kabhie’ and ‘Amar Akbar Anthony’ to ‘102 Not Out’ – Big B and Rishi Kapoor had worked in several films, while Irrfan Khan and Amitabh Bachchan were co-stars in Shoojit Sircar directed ‘Piku’.
Devastated after Rishi Kapoor passed away, Big B had shared on Twitter, “He’s GONE .. ! Rishi Kapoor .. gone .. just passed away .. I am destroyed !” However the actor later deleted the post and penned a moving memoriam on his blog, “I never visited him in Hospital .. I never wanted to see distress on his smiling cherubic face. But I am certain .. when he went , he must have gone with a gentle smile.”
