A few weeks ago, Big B, in a moving tribute to Rishi Kapoor, shared a clip from the last film where they worked together – 102 Not Out. In the film, Rishi Kapoor and Big B recreated the evergreen song Waqt Ne Kiya Kya Haseen Sitam from the 1959 film Kaagaz Ke Phool. Sharing the lyrical video of the song which was sung by Big B in the film 102 Not Out, the 77-year-old actor wrote the lyrics of the song as a tribute to his friend and co-star Rishi Kapoor. “Waqt.. Waqt ne kiya kya haseen sitam .. Tum rahe na tum, hum rahe na hum,” wrote Big B.
Rishi Kapoor died on May 30, after a two-year-long battle with cancer. Amitabh Bachchan wrote a moving eulogy for Rishi Kapoor on his blog. “During his time of diagnosis and his treatment he never ever lamented his condition. It was always, ‘see you soon, just a routine visit to the hospital, I’ll be back shortly’. Joie de vivre, the exuberant enjoyment of life, was a gene he inherited from his father, the Legend, the Ultimate Showman, the Iconic Raj Kapoor. I never visited him in hospital, I never wanted to see distress on his smiling cherubic face. But I am certain, when he went, he must have gone with a gentle smile,” read an excerpt from his post.
Rishi Kapoor was diagnosed with cancer in 2018, after which he underwent treatment for almost a year in New York. He returned to India in September, last year.
