On the morning of Rishi Kapoor’s birth anniversary, Neetu shared an emotional note, writing about the time the actor underwent treatment in New York: “I learnt a lot from Rishi Ji during our last few traumatic years in NYC… how we celebrated when his blood counts were high, we dined shopped laughed.
