New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Bollywood suffered yet another loss today as veteran actor Rishi Kapoor left for heavenly abode after battling cancer for two years. The 67-year-old died at Mumbai’s Sir H N Reliance Foundation Hospital.

Not just an exceptional actor, Kapoor was equally vocal on social and political issues and aired his views and opinions on social media where he was highly active.

However, he hadn’t tweeted after April 2 owing to his ill health. In his tweet, the veteran actor had raised voice on the issue of violence against health workers battling coronavirus on the frontlines.

"An appeal to all brothers and sisters from all social status and faiths. Please don’t resort to violence, stone throwing or lynching. Doctors,Nurses,Medics, Policemen etc..are endangering their lives to save you. We have to win this Coronavirus war together. Please. Jai Hind!Flag of India," he had posted.

The same same day he had replied to a compliment by director Kunal Kohli, with the latter saying that "Nobody plays the dafli like you". 

"Nobody plays the dafli like you! In fact. Every musical instrument you've played on screen. Always looks like you’re actually playing it. But the dafli. Just the best ... oh dafli waale ... dafli buja .... what a song! Made as much by the way you played it," Kunal had said.

Rishi responded, "Thank you. Much credit to late Shree. P.L. Raj ji the choreographer. Of course some measure of knowledge and talent is necessary of something or anything you portray on screen. I have in all modesty taken this as a compliment. Thank you Kunal."
