Life is very uncertain and that’s exactly how one can describe it. In the last two days, the Hindi film industry lost two of its most celebrated actors Irrfan Khan and Rishi Kapoor. Ironically both the actors died due to cancer. Rishi breathed his last in a Mumbai hospital. The actor’s sudden demise just after the death of Irrfan, came as a huge blow to the entire nation.

Apart from several unfinished projects, Rishi Kapoor’s long cherished wish to visit his ancestral home in Pakistan remains unfulfilled. On several occasions, the veteran actor had openly expressed his wish to visit Pakistan at least once before he dies.

A few years back, taking to his Twitter handle, the ‘Mulk’ actor had written, “I am 65 years old and I want to see Pakistan before I die. I want my children to see their roots. Bas karva Dijiye. Jai Mata Di !”

Also during one of his interactive session with a fan on Twitter, Rishi was asked if he is planning to visit Pakistan again, and he replied, “We all will come. Promise. But only once these circumstances between the two nations get better. Hope in my living time at least.”

If you are wondering why the actor was so keen to visit the neighbouring country, let us inform you that, he has a house in Peshawar, Pakistan. It was constructed between 1918 and 1922 by Dewan Basheswarnath Kapoor, the father of Prithviraj Kapoor. The Kapoors shifted to India after the 1947 partition. And Prithviraj was the first member of the Kapoor family to enter the film industry.

The veteran actor always wanted to visit his family hometown in Peshawar and he had even shot for his film ‘Henna'(1991) in Islamabad. Unfortunately, the ties between India and Pakistan only deteriorated in the last few years. On April 30, Rishi bid adieu to the world and could never fulfil his wish to visit Pakistan.
