It is the biggest loss in the history of Hindi cinema, who lost these two legendary actors in these two days. Yesterday at around 11, o’clock, when it was known that legendary Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan is no longer with us, it was a shock to hear. Irrfan Khan breathed his last at KokilabenDhirubhai Ambani Hospital in Mumbai and is believed to had neuroendocrine tumor cancer for nearly two years. All his fans had hoped that he would soon win the battle of cancer. But after such a long battle, Irfan Khan lost this battle of life and left this world forever. According to sources, his death was not due to cancer, but he died due to colon infection.
Irrfan Khan‘s demise was a shock to Indian cinema, today, upon hearing the news of the loss of Rishi Kapoor, another veteran of Indian cinema, it seems as if the entire Mumbai city has become mourned. If Covid-19 had not spread in the world, the last journey of these two iconic actors would not have been so quiet. There would be a gathering of their millions of fans to bid him farewell.
Legendary Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor died on Thursday, after being admitted to a hospital in Mumbai the previous night.
The news was confirmed by a close family friend and veteran star Amitabh Bachchan, who took to social media to share his grief.
Rishi Kapoor‘s brother Randhir Kapoor told the media that he had a breathing problem, so he was given medical treatment. Rishi’s wife, Neetu Kapoor, accompanied him to the hospital.
Many actors from the film fraternity went out to express their condolences. In this lockdown where everyone is locked in their own homes, the same cinema actors also followed this rule, and everyone expressed their condolences on Twitter and Instagram.
