New Delhi: Two in two days is too many. Just a day after the country was shocked by the sudden demise of actor Irrfan Khan, veteran actor Rishi Kapoor passed away Thursday morning of leukemia.

Reactions poured in on social media as fellow actors, politicians, sportsmen and others paid tribute to the prolific actor.

Perhaps the first person to break the news of Kapoor’s death was fellow veteran actor and co-star in many films, Amitabh Bachchan, who appears completely shattered in this tweet.

An equally inconsolable Simi Garewal who starred in Kapoor’s debut film Mera Naam Joker (1970), shares her grief…

Lata Mangeshkar holds on to cherished memories as she expresses grief and shock.

Filmmaker Karan Johar, who directed the veteran actor in Student of The Year (2012), perfectly captures the feeling of an entire generation in a mere four words.

Superstar Rajinikanth worked with Kapoor in Dosti Dushmani (1986) – he mourns a dear friend.

Lyricist Javed Akhtar shares the heartwarming tale of how he met Rishi Kapoor for the first time.

And TV anchor Pallavi Ghosh shares a priceless photograph of the actor outside his ‘Bobby hut’ in Jammu and Kashmir’s Gulmarg.

Actors Urmila Matondkar and Manisha Koirala, not normally active Twitter users, fondly remember the star – they have both acted with Kapoor in films like Shreemaan Aashique and Anmol .

Filmfare, India’s leading film magazine, posts a photograph of the two late actors with the perfect caption. Actor Anushka Sharma had a similar idea.

Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap says what’s on all our minds.

Like yesterday after Irrfan Khan’s death, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Congress leader Rahul Gandhi take the lead amongst politicians in remembering Rishi Kapoor.

Home Minister Amit Shah comes out with condolences too.

Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman is an unusual name on the list of mourners but she has a personalised message for both Khan and Kapoor.

Meanwhile, remembrances and tributes continue for Irrfan Khan.

The Jurassic World franchise says a last goodbye to its family member. Khan had acted in the fourth installment of the Jurassic Park film series 2015.

Writer and actor Mindy Kaling of The Mindy Project and The Office fame shares what actor Tom Hanks had said about Irrfan Khan. Hanks acted with him in 2016’s smash-hit Inferno.
