Taking to Instagram on Saturday, Neetu Kapoor penned a note for her late husband Rishi Kapoor, on his 69th Birth Anniversary. “I learnt a lot from Rishi Ji during our last few traumatic years in NYC,” she wrote, adding, “I can picture him…how excited he would’ve been for his 69th birthday!! I’m sure he’s celebrating with his family up there.“
