However, his final tweet was a heartwarming message of peace and empathy, shared on April 2. "An appeal to all brothers and sisters from all social status and faiths. Please don't resort to violence, stone throwing or lynching. Doctors, Nurses, Medics, Policemen etc..are endangering their lives to save you. We have to win this Coronavirus war together. Please.

A huge loss for the entertainment industry. Let us pray for his soul. Condolences to his family and friends."
PM Modi described Rishi Kapoor as "multi-faceted, endearing and lively" and said he would remember their social media interactions.
He wrote, "Multifaceted, endearing and lively...this was Rishi Kapoor Ji. He was a powerhouse of talent. I will always recall our interactions, even on social media. He was passionate about films and India's progress. Anguished by his demise. Condolences to his family and fans. Om Shanti."
