Actress Neetu Kapoor broke up during an episode of Indian Idol 12 as a tribute to her and her late husband, actor Rishi Kapoor, who died in 2020 after a two-year battle with cancer. The special Neetu-Rishi episode will be aired.
According to a report, Neetu’s tears did not stop after actors Jeetendra and Rakesh Roshan talked about their favorite memories of Rishi through recorded messages.
Rakesh said, Rishi was an open hearted and clear person. Our friendship lasted for 45 years and till date I feel his absence. He is truly Indian Idol and I miss him a lot. Jitendra said, I cannot express the feeling of how much I miss him. He was always a chintu for me. Hats off to Neetuji for being the best partner, handling her and the whole family together.
The report quoted an emotional Neetu as saying, I wanted to celebrate Rishi today but, watching these videos and loving my legendary friends, I am just emotional and overwhelmed.
In the promo of this episode, Neetu is seen dancing to the song Ek Aur Ek Ek starring Rishi and himself from the film Khiladi. Neetu also received video messages from her children, Ranbir and Riddhima. While Ranbir spoke of not having any musical talent, Riddhima called her mother the ‘real Indian Idol’.
He also gave a ‘life of Shagun’ to singer-judge Neha Kakkar. Neha tied the knot with Rohanpreet Singh last year.
Earlier this week, Neetu took to Instagram for 11 months after Rishi’s death. From today onwards, Rishiji’s 11-month prayer meeting felt like sharing a moment from our last visit to NYC, he wrote. Pictures of Ranbir and Riddhima attending the prayer meeting were also shared online.
