The post became the talk on social media as fans wondered the reason behind Anil calling Rishi ‘James’. The ‘Malang’ actor took to Instagram once again to share another post in which he revealed why the reason. Anil wrote, “The reason I called Rishi Kapoor James was because according to me if there was anyone who looked as good as James Dean it was him…and he loved hearing that from me…he will always be James for me.”
The 63-year-old actor had previously posted a childhood picture of them, where he wrote, “I don’t know where to begin…from growing up, to living our dreams on screen, we were together through it all… you were like an elder brother to me, a shoulder when I needed the support, a mentor when I needed that push and a friend always.”
Furthermore, he added, “Thank you for the endless love you gave my family and me. You were like a son to my mother and you knew that Krishna aunty was always like a mother to me. Along with everything that you were for your friends and family, you were a beacon of inspiration for cinema lovers everywhere… I will miss you every day…nothing will be the same without you…but I will celebrate your life like you wanted us to…”
Meanwhile, Rishi Kapoor was cremated at 4 pm at Chandawadi crematorium in Mumbai yesterday. Bollywood celebs like Alia Bhatt, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Saif and Abhishek Bachchan attended the veteran actor’s last rites.
