On Rishi Kapoor's death anniversary, here is a look at his final years in Bollywood

On 30th April a year ago, Rishi Kapoor left this world after a long battle with leukaemia, leaving behind an amazing body of work for which he will be remembered for ages. Rishi, or Chintu, as he was fondly called, was supposed to feature alongside Deepika Padukone in the Hindi remake of the Hollywood film 'The Intern.' Amitabh Bachchan recently replaced him in the film. His last release before his death was Jeetu Joseph's 2019 thriller film 'The Body', co-starring Emraan Hashmi. It met with mixed responses.

A year before that, Rishi did three films out of which two garnered acclaim. The first one was the period drama 'Manto', based on the life of Sadat Hasan Manto and the other being Anubhav Sinha's 'Mulk.' In the former, he played an arrogant film producer in pre-Independence India. While in the latter, he played a Muslim who fights to reclaim the family's honor after their family member gets involved in terrorism. His performance and the film both met with critical acclaim and the film also did well at the box office. 'Mulk' still remains the last remarkable performance by the remarkable actor who ruled the industry for over five decades. From his first film 'Bobby' to his last one, Rishi gave us so much, so many interesting characters, that has made him immortal.
