Shocking! Unbelievable! News we all woke up to, the untimely passing away of our own “Khullam Khulla” #RishiKapoor @chintskap.He was the most desirable, star / actor, with great qualities, jovial,charming, adorable, most loved,producer, director & what not. He certainly carried ‘Mera Naam Joker’ & received the National Film Award as a child artist & several awards later on. He was a multi dimensional personality in the true sense, a dear colleague, friend, charismatic & of course one of the rarest of rare human beings too. Farewell my dear friend.
