BOLLYWOOD TRAGEDY

Kapoor’s career took off when he played his first lead role in 1973’s teen love story, Bobby.

He was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and returned to India last year after undergoing treatment in New York.

Tributes pour in for the star, another actor saying he is “destroyed” after hearing the devastating news.

It’s a terrible week for Indian cinema, with the passing of another legend, actor Rishi Kapoor.

Amitabh Bachchan, who worked in blockbuster movies with him, tweeted, “He’s gone!” Rishi Kapoor… gone… has just died… I am destroyed! “

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi added: “This is a terrible week for Indian cinema, with the death of another legend, actor Rishi Kapoor.

“A wonderful actor, with a big fan following the generations, he will be greatly missed. “

TWO DEAD STARS

Star Khan, who starred in Slumdog Millionaire and Jurassic World, died in hospital on Monday.

The actor has been battling cancer for a number of years, but will recover well after intensive treatment.

Khan revealed his diagnosis of cancer in a Twitter message in 2018, claiming he had an endocrine tumor.
