On the 69th birthday of the actor, his family celebrated his birthday at Rumi Jafry’s house. Actor Shatrughan Sinha was also invited to the party which included the actor’s wife, Neetu Kapoor and brother Randhir Kapoor. Even the late actor himself was present in the event in the form of a cutout.

In a recent interview actor, Shatrughan Sinha gave insights into the celebration. He recalled that the whole family was trying to accept the loss in a happy manner. But the actor’s brother, Randhir Kapoor was silent and grieved from inside.

Shatrughan Sinha said, “The get-together was a sort of a celebration but it was the acceptance of the situation which we need to praise here; it got emotional, Randhir was a bit quiet and not his usual self. But then, we understand how close Randhir was to Rishi. Add this to his another loss this year when Rajiv Kapoor passed away in February.”
