NEW DELHI: Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor breahthed his last on Thursday morning at Mumbai's HN Reliance Hospital.

The actor is survived by his wife Neetu Singh and children, Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni.

Riddhima, who is married to an industrialist, stays in Delhi. Reportedly she will be travelling to Mumbai to attend her father's funeral.

Since the nation is under a lockdown to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus, the celebrity daughter asked a movement pass from South-East Delhi DCP to be able to attend her father's last rites. The permission was granted at 10.30 am today.

According to reports, she had asked the Union Home Ministry last night for permission to fly to Mumbai by a chartered flight. But she was told permission to fly could only be given by Home Minister Amit Shah. As an option, she asked to be allowed to drive to Mumbai in a group of five.

She will now travel by road and is expected to reach Mumbai after a 1,400 km-journey, which roughly takes 24 hours.

Riddhima also shared a heart-wrenching farewell post on Instagram for her father, Rishi Kapoor.


The news of actor's death was confirmed by Amitabh Bachchan and Randhir Kapoor today.
