Rishi Kapoor’s elder sister, Ritu Nanda passed away early morning on January 14. The 71-year-old was suffering from cancer and she breathed her last in Delhi. Several Bollywood celebs were spotted at her funeral rites, and they all came under one roof to offer prayers to the departed soul. During the prayer meet last evening, an emotional Amitabh Bachchan shared a heartfelt speech for Ritu Nanda.

A video has been going viral today, where Sr.Bachchan can be seen getting emotional, as he speaks about Ritu. The actor can be seen talking about the glorious life that she lead. He started off saying, “An ideal daughter, an ideal sister, an ideal wife, an ideal Mother, an ideal in-law, an ideal Mother-in-Law, and an ideal friend.. has left us for good in a distance we cannot cover.. for now..!!” Amitabh extended his views about Ritu in an almost teary-eyed speech.

As the ceremony was followed by an emotional rendition of songs such as ‘Jeena Yahaan Marna Yahaan’, it showed how much Ritu was loved and respected amongst people from the film industry and otherwise.
