Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Arjun Kapoor have shared their gut-wrenching anecdotes about legendary actor Rishi Kapoor, who died in Mumbai on Thursday after battling cancer for two years. Shahid Kapoor likened his death to ‘darkest moments,’ while niece Kareena Kapoor Khan shared a childhood photo of her father Randhir Kapoor and Rishi Kapoor on Instagram calling them ‘the best boys.’ Elsewhere, an emotional note by Alia Bhatt, who’s dating Ranbir Kapoor will make you cry.

Shah Rukh Khan, who made his Bollywood debut alongside Rishi Kapoor in Deewana also featuring Divya Bharti, shared his experience of working with the legendary actor. He wrote, “On the first day of the shoot, he sat for my scene to finish after pack up. Then with that famously radiant smile on his face, he said, “yaar tujhme energy bahut hai! (Friend, you have tremendous energy) That day in my head I became an actor,” Shah Rukh Khan revealed in his post, “I will miss him for many things but more than all of them, I will miss him for the gentle pat on my head every time we met. I will keep it in my heart always as the ‘aashirwaad‘ that made me who I am today.”



Arjun Kapoor, who acted in Aurangzeb with Rishi Kapoor, narrated his experience of sharing screen space with him for the first time. An inexperienced actor that he was, Arjun said that he was nervous on the first day of the shooting. But, according to him, not only did Rishi Kapoor make him comfortable on the sets but also quietly called Arjun’s father Boney Kapoor to reassure him about his son.

Arjun wrote, “He was my friends father, my co actor, a talent who’s work I grew up watching & admiring…. but what separates him from everyone else was one thing… Chintoo uncle had the most amazing way of showing warmth & love. It was different from anyone else.”

He continued, “I remember my first day I shot with him for Aurangzeb in Gurgaon. Despite being nervous we managed to go thru day one without any hiccups. I was relieved that I didn’t screw up in front of him & went back to the hotel. I got a call from my father later that night saying Chintoo uncle had called him spoken to him about working with me, he told my dad something that meant the world to me “Boney tu tension matt le apna baccha acha actor hai yehi rahega acha kaam karega” to me that was love, acceptance & recognition of the highest order.”

Arjun concluded, “Love you Chintoo uncle ? thank you for the memories from RK house to Raj Krishna to Ridhima’s sangeet rehearsals to Aurangzeb to having spent a beautiful evening with you & Neetu Aunty in New York. You shall live in my heart & mind forever.
Cheers ?”
