Almost three weeks after his unfortunate demise, his elder brother Randhir Kapoor has expressed how the Kapoor family has been holding up and how they miss him every day.

Speaking to Hindustan Times, the actor said, "God has been kind and the family is holding up well. We are taking one day at a time but we all miss him every day. We shared a common bond over friends, family, food and films." He added, "People across the world showered their love on him. We have been flooded with condolence messages and some have even shared their memories or their personal experiences with my brother. It is impossible to reply to all of them but I'd like to thank everyone and just want to tell his fans to remember him for his movies, for his smile and undying spirit."

Rishi Kapoor and Randhir Kapoor were two of the biggest names in the movie business during the 70s and delivered one blockbuster after another.
