On Rishi Kapoor's 69th birthday anniversary, his wife and veteran actress Neetu Kapoor poured her heart out in an emotional post. Rishi Kapoor, who passed away on April 3, 2020, after battling cancer, was in New York for almost a year for treatment. Neetu Kapoor was by his side throughout. Sharing the memories of those times, she remembered how they used to celebrate the little joys with food and television shows. 

Along with a beautiful throwback picture, she wrote, "I learnt a lot from Rishi Ji during our last few traumatic years in NYC... how we celebrated when his blood counts were high, we dined shopped laughed. In his lows, we just stayed home watched TV, ordered in amazing food and still had some wonderful moments in hope that the next round of chemotherapy he would be better."

"Hope and being strong is what he taught me .. value each day .. we all miss him today! I can picture him how excited he would have been for his 69th birthday! I'm sure he is celebrating with his family up there. Happy birthday Kapoor Saab," she further wrote in the heart wrenching post.
