Bollywood Legend Rishi Kapoor has died at the age of 67 after losing his battle to cancer.
He was diagnosed with leukemia two years ago and only returned to India in September after receiving treatment in the US.
Kapoor made his debut in the Hindi Film industry in 1973 and hails from a legendary acting family. His family has issued a statement.
"The doctors and medical staff at the hospital said he kept them entertained to the last. He remained jovial and determined to live to the fullest right through two years of treatment across two continents. Family, friends, food and films remained his focus and everyone who met him during this time was amazed at how he did not let his illness get the better of him.
"He was grateful for the love of his fans that poured in from the world over. In his passing, they would all understand that he would like to be remembered with a smile and not with tears.”
