Riddhima Kapoor Sahni arrived in Mumbai on Saturday night, two days after her father Rishi Kapoor died of cancer
Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, Rishi Kapoor's daughter who left Delhi by road on May 1, reached Mumbai on Saturday (May 2) in the evening. She was accompanied by her daughter Samara Sahni.
Riddhima couldn't attend her father Rishi Kapoor's last rites in Mumbai due to the ongoing lockdown. While she sought special permission from Delhi Police and got a pass, she couldn't fly. Therefore, she took the road route to Mumbai from the capital on Friday.
On Thursday (April 30), a distraught Riddhima expressed her wish to say goodbye to Rishi one last time. She shared emotional messages on Instagram stories. “Love you papa. RIP,” Ridhima captioned a selfie with Rishi. “I miss you already. Come back na papa,” she wrote alongside a picture of her with Rishi and Neetu.
“Wish I could be there to say goodbye to you papa,” she wrote, sharing another picture of her and her parents. Another picture of her with Rishi and Ranbir was captioned with a broken heart emoji.
Riddhima also shared an emotional Instagram post for Rishi. “Papa I love you I will always love you - RIP my strongest warrior I will miss you everyday I will miss your FaceTime calls everyday! I wish I could be there to say goodbye to you ! Until we meet again papa I love you - your Mushk forever,” she wrote, sharing a picture of her with him.
Rishi died on Thursday morning at the age of 67 after a two-year battle with cancer. “He remained jovial and determined to live to the fullest right through two years of treatment across two continents. Family, friends, food and films remained his focus and everyone who met him during this time was amazed at how he did not let his illness get the better of him,” his family said in a statement.
His last rites were performed at the Chandanwadi crematorium at around 4pm on Thursday evening.
