Who's giving u permission to go and make this— 💫Quarantined Reenz❤🎆💫 (@sweetsoul_117) April 30, 2020
Rishi Kapoor's daughter, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni had reportedly requested the Union Home Ministry on April 29 night to grant her permission to fly to Mumbai in a chartered flight. However, she was told that Amit Shah, the Home Minister of India, can only grant permission for the same. After being granted permission, Ridhima was expected to land in Mumbai via private jet reaching 1800 hours on April 30 to attend her father’s funeral. However, it seemed that due to certain problems, she could not make it up to her father’s cremation and now Riddhima is travelling by road to Mumbai. In the small clip, she shared the empty road from her car and wrote, “Driving home ma, Enroute to Mumbai.”
