Above is the video where Rishi Kapoor takes the stage to pay tribute to his sister Ritu Nanda. In the video, Rishi can be heard talking about how it would have been Ritu and her late husband Rajan Nanda's 51st anniversary today. He then added that perhaps Ritu wanted to be with her husband rather than with them, which was why she moved on. Rishi Kapoor then thanks all those gathered at the prayer meet and walks off the stage. 

Ritu Nanda was the elder sister of Rishi Kapoor, Randhir, Rajiv and Rima Kapoor. She also had a daughter and a son named Nitasha and Nikhil respectively. Nikhil is the husband of Amitabh Bachchan's daughter Shweta.
