RIP Rishi kapoor sir and Irrfan Khan sir . Your contribution to cinema is unmatched . Your battle was different, strength to both families' while offering condolence.


RIP to all those wonderful souls who lost their battle to covid-19. Whatever your contribution to society it will be remembered and missed . Strength to all those families who have had such a sudden loss and could not even be by their loved ones side in their last moments . Strength to all those single parents who will have to bring up their kids all alone and are still finding a way to deal with their loss . Strength to all those kids who will miss a mother or a father figure in their growing up years .Finally strength to all those health workers who are working tirelessly to keep us in good health. I cannot even begin to imagine the mental strength required to see so many lives lost and then having to inform families about the same ... Salute to all those health workers around the world . Let’s all be one and fight this together, this is not the time to defy rules or norms because each life lost and it doesn’t matter where in the world it is..is a loss to humanity . P.S. RIP Rishi kapoor sir and Irrfan Khan sir . Your contribution to cinema is unmatched . Your battle was different , strength to both families .
