A source told the daily that Riddhima had been seeking permission to travel since Wednesday when her father’s health started deteriorating. The source added Riddhima is also trying to find a flight so she could reach her family as early as possible. Srikant Kishore, DIG CISF, Delhi Airport said they have no information on Riddhima’s plan to fly to Mumbai.
Riddhima took to Instagram to share a heartbreaking post on her father’s death. “Papa I love you I will always love you – RIP my strongest warrior I will miss you everyday I will miss your FaceTime calls everyday! Until we meet again papa I love you,” she captioned a selfie with her father.
Rishi returned to India last September after undergoing treatment for cancer in the US for almost a year. In February, Kapoor was hospitalised twice due to his health issues.
May the actor’s soul rest in peace!
