Big B shared a collage of photos with both the actors and wrote, “The death of an elder celebrity vs death of a younger .. the grief of the latter more intense than that of the former .. why ..?The younger more tragic Why the loss of the young seems more tragic than that of the older .. Because you lament the loss of opportunity in the latter .. unrealised possibilities.”
He shared a musical video in which he sings the song from the 1959 film ‘Kaagaz Ke Phool’, “Waqt Waqt ne kiya kya haseen sitam .. Tum rahe na tum, Hum rahe na hum ..”
Rishi Kapoor took his last breath in Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai while Irrfan passed away in Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital. Big B could not attend the funeral ceremony of both the stars but his son Abhishek Bachchan was present there to support Rishi’s family.
