Neetu Kapoor, who was her husband Rishi Kapoor’s constant companion wrote about the “long journey” in a post and also thanked Mukesh and Nita Ambani for being the Kapoor family’s “guardian angels” during such difficult times. “For us, as a family, the last two years have been a long journey. There were good days, there were a couple of bad days too… needless to say it was full of high emotion. But it’s a journey we would not have been able to complete without the immeasurable love and support of the Ambani family”.
“Over the last seven months, every member of the family has gone above and beyond in every way possible to care for our beloved Rishi and ensure he experienced as little discomfort as possible,” Neetu wrote for the Ambanis.
Neetu further wrote, “From ensuring he was medically attended to, to making frequent, personal visits to the hospital to shower him with love and attention, to even holding our hand and comforting us when WE were scared. To Mukesh Bhai, Nita Bhabhi, Akash, Shloka, Anant and Isha – you have been our guardian angels on this long and trying experience – what we feel for you cannot be measured. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your selfless, unending support and attention. We feel truly blessed to count you among our nearest and dearest.”
