Rishi Kapoor passed away on April 30, 2020. The ‘Kapoor & Sons’ actor was battling Leukemia for two years. He was in the US for more than a year for the treatment. He was accompanied by his wifey Neetu Kapoor. In a candid conversation with Filmfare, Kareema opened up about how the family dealt with it.
She said that it’s been a terrible tragedy. She said Chintu uncle was a Virgo like her. He believed in saying things as they were. If he loved our performance, he’d tell you so and if he hated it, he would say he didn’t like it.
Speaking about her and Saif Ali Khan’s equation with the late actor, she said that her husband misses him a lot more because he connected with him on another level. They believed they were similar actors but unfortunately she never had the opportunity to work with him.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Bebo will be seen next in Aamir Khan’s film. It is loosely based on American drama, ‘Forrest Gump’. She is also doing Karan Johar’s ‘Takht’.
