Shraddha Kapoor, Athiya Shetty, Huma Qureshi among others took to their Instagram handles to remember their loving 'Chintu Uncle' and paid tributes with heartwarming notes.
I was awestruck whenever I watched Rishi uncles movies. A legendary superstar heartthrob! Whenever I met him, he would be really loving. The few times that I’ve been pat on the back by him, I’ll always hold on to. My dad would tell me the wonderful things he would say about me and it would be so overwhelming. He rooted for me and that coming from him, will always be too precious. This is a huge devastating loss. Rest in peace Rishi uncle. You will be missed so so much 💜
