Rishi Kapoor’s sister Rima Jain said that a havan will be done by Ranbir and Neetu and the family will join in through Zoom. “Neetu is having an online havan puja, that she and Ranbir will do. We will also be a part of it through Zoom,” she told Pinkvilla.

A photo was shared by Bharat Sahni, Riddhima Kapoor’s husband, which appears to be from the puja. Neetu Kapoor also shared a picture on Instagram with Rishi Kapoor’s framed portrait, adorned in a rose garland from the havan.

Earlier in the day, Neetu Kapoor remembered her late husband with a smile and shared how they have accepted that “life will never be the same without him.” She added, “We have celebrated him all year with a smile on the lips as he will stay in our hearts forever 🌸 we have accepted life will never be the same without him !!! But life will go on …. 🙏💕💕💕🌸🌸🌸#rishikapoor.”

Sharing a monochrome picture of the couple from their earlier days, she also wrote,” “All of last year has been of grief and sadness around the world for us maybe more as we lost him .. Not a day has gone by when we have not discussed or reminisced him as he was an extension of our existence .. sometimes his wise advice:: his wise cracks : his anecdotes !!”

Rishi Kapoor passed away on April 30, 2020 after a two-year battle with cancer, leaving a huge void in the Hindi film industry.

A few months post his demise, Ranbir Kapoor who had wished to have a ‘friendlier relationship’ with his father had mentioned how they got to spend a lot of time together during Rishi’s treatment days, and that left a large impact on his life.

“Just the time I spent with him in these last two years, before he passed, walking with him from the hotel to the hospital while he was getting his chemotherapy, just walking in silence and being around him… Everything has gone so fast. I don’t know if I have really formed words yet about what impact he has had on me, professionally and personally, but I do know that it’s the largest impact a human being has had on my life so far,” he mentioned.

He also said how he is the person he is today due to his father. “The person I am is because of the strong value system that he imbibed to my sister and myself. He’s been an extremely passionate man. A family man,” he had said.
