News of Rishi Kapoor‘s death left everyone shocked. The veteran actor was a gem and his death has been a huge loss to the film industry. Yesterday along with the film industry, the whole nation mourned the loss of such a talented personality. While everyone remembered their time with Rishi, actor Anil Kapoor revealed why he used to call Rishi ‘James’.

James is for the late actor James Dean. He was the cultural icon of his time and he was seen in movies like ‘Rebel Without a Cause’, ‘Giant’, ‘East of Eden’ and many more. Sharing a picture of Rishi alongside James, Anil wrote that Rishi looked just as good as James. “The reason I called Rishi Kapoor James was because according to me if there was anyone who looked as good as James Dean it was him…and he loved hearing that from me…he will always be James for me…(sic),” Anil wrote.

Rishi Kapoor’s family had announced about his unfortunate demise in an official statement, part of which read, “Our dear Rishi Kapoor passed away peacefully at 8:45 am IST in hospital today after a two-year battle with leukaemia. The doctors and medical staff at the hospital said he kept them entertained to the last. He remained jovial and determined to live to the fullest right through two years of treatment across two continents. Family, friends, food and films remained his focus and everyone who met him during this time was amazed at how he did not let his illness get the better of him. He was grateful for the love of his fans that poured in from the world over. In his passing, they would all understand that he would like to be remembered with a smile and not with tears.”
