Leaving everyone shocked, veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor passed away on Thursday morning at 8:45 AM in Mumbai. He was admitted to the Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital on Wednesday. In September 2019, the veteran actor had returned to Mumbai after staying in New York for almost a year for cancer treatment.
Earlier, on Wednesday, Bollywood's most versatile actor Irrfan Khan passed away at Mumbai's Kokilaben Hospital. He was 53. He was admitted to the hospital on Tuesday for a colon infection. He was diagnosed with neuroendocrine tumour in 2018.
Meanwhile, after the Indian film industry lost two legendary actors in two days, Sanjay Gupta shared his "uncanny" mathematics.
He wrote, "Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan leave for their heavenly abode ! It’s so uncanny... Irrfan born 1967 and passes away at the age of 53. Rishi Kapoor born in 1953 passes away at the age of 67. 1967+53=1953+67= 2020. Fu** you 2020!!!"
Twitterati trolled the filmmaker for the tweet, which prompted him to delete it. Here are some of the Twitter reactions:
The filmmaker also said that to give a tribute to the veteran actor, everyone at 9 pm today should post a picture with a drink.
"Even in his passing away we can only celebrate him. 9pm today post a pic with a drink with #CheersChintuji," he wrote.
