Rishi Kapoor above everything was a man who cared for everyone, this was his last tweet where he shared how he was concerned about Pakistanis:
With all due respect, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan should also advice his country to take adequate precautions. People of Pakistan are also dear to us. Once we were one. We are concerned too. This is a global crisis. No ego matter this. We love you guys. Humanity zindabad !
