Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor would have turned 69 yesterday if he were alive. On the occasion of his 69th birth anniversary, the actor was fondly remembered by his family, friends, and fans. In a recent interview, Neetu Kapoor poured her heart out and revealed many unknown things about the late actor. Amongst them were Rishi Kapoor’s two most cherished desires. She revealed that her husband wanted to see the wedding of their son Ranbir Kapoor and KrishnaRaj bungalow on Pali Hill, which has been home to them and their kids Ranbir and Riddhima for 35 years, redeveloped.
While speaking with The Quint, Neetu, when asked about two of Rishi's most cherished desires, said, “One was to see Ranbir wearing a turban with an emerald and a broach in the Peshawari tradition - astride a ghodi, on his wedding day. He was totally sentimental about this, he’d keep saying, “Kisi din, mujhe humaare bete ko ghodi pe sawaar dekhna hai.”
Neetu said that his second wish was to see their KrishnaRaj house redeveloped and complete, with three separate apartments for Riddhima, Ranbir and Rishi-Neetu. She also added that he would visit the site everyday, supervising minute details until Covid-19 happened.
Speaking on how Rishi Kapoor would have celebrated his 69th birthday, Neetu Kapoor stated, “Oh, I’m sure he’d get himself a new suit like he always did. And he’d take two hours to get ready, while I just took an hour at most. He was very fond of clothes of all colours – even yellow, purple, green and gold because he could carry them off. I don’t know how many suits and jackets are still there in his wardrobe, unworn, with the price tags on. And he was crazy about shoes, too, of all colours again!”
Rishi Kapoor, popularly known by his nickname Chintu, died on April 30, 2020, after a two-year-long battle with cancer. Also Read:Top 8 Moments From This Weekend Episodes Of The Kapil Sharma Show With Kiara Advani, Sidharth Malhotra, Neetu Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni
