Ray | 2 years ago | Reply Rishi Kapor represented his family well and embodied the culture of his ancestors who despised in Bolywood for being pathans from Peshawar...If one man represented that culture it was Rishi a big hearted pathan w love and affection for all and honesty and integrity above everything else. To me they always tried to remember and honor the culture and I am sorry that he last wish to visit homeland in Peshawar couldn't come true...I hope we live to see the day that at least his children would be allowed to come and visit their home. He loved India but equally loved Pakistan and hence I will like to remember for his qualities of what a great Pakistan pathan would look like....open hearted man who lived the big life according to his own rules...it is heart breaking to see two of Indian cinema 's best voices will be silenced now forever...Irfan and Rishu...RIP
