Riddhima couldn't attend her father's funeral due to the lockdown, as she was staying back in Delhi with her husband and daughter. The only way out that made the journey possible was the road, as all sorts of transportation were prohibited due to the nation-wide lockdown imposed to contain the spread of the coronavirus.

Though after receiving the necessary permissions from the government Riddhima, left for Mumbai by road. As the journey of 1400 km by road demands time, Riddhima was unable to attend the last rites of her father, hence Alia Bhatt kept her on a video call during that time.


Earlier, the day when Ridhima lost her father, she had uploaded a picture on Instagram along with a heart-wrenching caption, she wrote, "Papa, I love you I will always love you - RIP my strongest warrior. I will miss you every day. I will miss your FaceTime calls every day! I wish I could be there to say goodbye to you! Until we meet again, papa. I love you - your Mushk forever."

Rishi Kapoor's prayer meet was attended by family and close friends, including, brother Randhir Kapoor, Karisma Kapoor, Babita Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, Shweta Nanda along with daughter Navya Naveli.

As Ranbir Kapoor is spending quarantine with his girlfriend, Alia, the duo arrived at Neetu Kapoor's Bandra residence too, where she is living with daughter Ridhima.
