While speaking to the press and fans at the event, Ranbir expressed that he was missing his father on the special occasion. He shared how Rishi Kapoor would fight with him and director Ayan Mukherji over the film and would ask several questions.
Ranbir recalled, “I miss my father terribly today. I remember during the making of this film, during these last how many ever years, he kept fighting with Ayan and me and kept questioning us, ‘What are you doing?’ ‘Who takes so long to make a film?’ ‘Who spends so much money? Ranbir you’re not making one penny on this film. VFX film kaun dekhega, India mein koi VFX film nahi dekhta.’”
He added, “But I believe he’s here somewhere. I hope he’s proud, I hope he’s smiling. And just to pay a small tribute to him, if you guys know it, please join me.” and then sang renowned lines from Rishi’s film Karz. “Kya tumne kabhi kisi se pyaar kiya, kabhi kisi ko dil diya, maine bhi diya,” Ranbir said and then blew a kiss at the sky.
After fighting with leukemia for two years, Rishi Kapoor finally succumbed to the disease on April 30, 2020. He received treatment from New York and took his last breath at HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai.
