Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor left the world today morning after fighting a long battle against cancer. He was a very cheerful person and was pretty active on the social media networks as well. Rishi Kapoor was one of those actors who never shied away from speaking their heart out on matters related to movies, social causes, etc.
The last tweet that Rishi Kapoor made was related to the coronavirus pandemic and he requested everyone to stand together in this war against lethal COVID-19. There were some incidents in the country in which stones were pelted on the medical staff, doctors and police personnel when they visited an area where the chances of finding coronavirus positive patients were high. Rishi Kapoor took to Twitter on 2nd April 2020 and urged Indians with folded hands not to harm the doctors, nurses, medics and policemen as these people are already risking their lives in order to keep us safe.
Here is what Rishi Kapoor tweeted:
“An appeal 🙏 to all brothers and sisters from all social status and faiths. Please don’t resort to violence, stone throwing or lynching. Doctors, Nurses, Medics, Policemen, etc.. are endangering their lives to save you. We have to win this Coronavirus war together. Please. Jai Hind!”

The coronavirus outbreak has already taken lives of more than 1070 people in India while the number of infected cases has crossed the 33K mark. If we talk about the whole world, over 2,28,000 people have lost their lives while more than 30 lakh have been found infected with the virus.
Rishi Kapoor was admitted in a hospital in Mumbai yesterday after he had breathing problem and today at 8:45 am, he took his last breath. The Kapoor family issued a statement in which they made the news of Rishi Kapoor’s demise public and informed everyone that he was jovial till the last. The statement also read that he would love to be remembered with smiles on faces rather than tears in eyes.
RIP Rishi Kapoor!
