Rishi Kapoor was like a father figure, says Neil Nitin Mukesh!

Veteran star Rishi Kapoor breathed his last on April 30, 2020, and left the whole Bollywood in a state of shock and grief. In a latest media chat, Neil Nitin Mukhesh opened up about the loss of the senior actor and how it impacted him and his father Nitin Mukesh. Earlier, when late Rishi Kapoor returned from New York, he went to meet Neil and his father at their home.
 
In a latest chat with a daily, Neil revealed about how he was left extremely shocked and saddened by Rishi Kapoor’s demise. He stated that the senior star was like a father figure to him and that he used to look up to him as an inspiration. Neil reminisced the times of working with Rishi Kapoor as a child actor in Vijay and even Ganpati Visarjan with him and stated that he was the only actor who could portray love like no one else on screen. Not just this, Neil admired him and told that he was a powerhouse of talent.
 
Furthermore, when questioned about his father’s reaction to the news of Rishi Kapoor’s demise, Neil disclosed that since that day, his father has been upset and missing his dear friend. He even shared that in his last days, Neil’s father was continuously in touch with late Rishi Kapoor. Neil revealed, “My father has been extremely upset ever since. And as a son, I feel so helpless too because I am far away from him at this moment. We have been consciously staying separately since we were advised to do so having a baby and senior citizens both at home. I have been speaking to him daily. There is not a day when he does not miss his CHINTU. Yes papa was in touch on a regular basis. He was and will be in our hearts and memories forever.”
