Randhir Kapoor lost his two Brothers, Rishi Kapoor and Rajiv Kapoor in a span of one year. While Rishi breathed his last in April last year, Rajiv left for the heavenly adobe in February this year.

In a conversation with Etimes, Randhir opened out about losing all his near and dear ones. He says, “The last year has been a very sad time in my life. ‘Sad’ is really a modest word here; ‘worst’ would be apt. In a matter of 10 months, I lost both my darling brothers- Chintu (Rishi Kapoor) and Chimpoo (Rajiv Kapoor). Also, I lost my mother (Krishna Kapoor) and sister (Ritu Nanda) in the last two-and-a-half years. We–my three brothers and two sisters–were extremely close to each other. Chintu, Chimpoo, and I interacted with each other every day. Chimpoo lived with me and Chintu either came to the office on the days that he wasn’t shooting or spoke to me on the phone. We didn’t need anybody when we three were together.”

“We were a very happy circus by ourselves. We were a robust crowd! All that is over. There’s not a single day that I don’t think about them. One year may have passed but there’s not a single day that I don’t think about them. Life will never be the same again,” he added further.

Speaking about Rishi’s wife Neetu Singh, Randhir said, “They are family to me. I feel sorry for them. Neetu lost a loving husband, and Ranbir and Riddhima, a loving father. It is good that Neetu went on to do a film (‘Jug Jugg Jeeyo’); she kept herself busy.”

Sharing about the best time the three brothers had Randhir said, “Several times! And when we were talking to each other fondly, people around us felt that we were fighting. But, we didn’t mind that; we thought it was a part of the game. We three were typical Punjabis who were loud, boisterous. I miss those days so much!”
