BOLLYWOOD: The Delhi Police has granted permission to Riddhima Sahni, daughter of actor Rishi Kapoor who passed away on Thursday morning, to travel to Mumbai for his last rites amid the nationwide coronavirus lockdown, a senior officer said.
“Along with Riddhima, four other people – Bharat Sahni, Samara Sahni, Akshay Sahni and Drigalakshmi Rai – got permission to travel to Mumbai,” Deputy Commissioner of Police (southeast) R.P. Meena said.
Sahni has been granted permission to travel from Delhi to Mumbai by road. Her family applied for permissions to fly her by a special aircraft which were apparently not coming through.
The 67-year-old actor, who was suffering from cancer, died in a Mumbai hospital. His death comes a day after his ‘D-Day’ co-star Irrfan Khan passed away due to cancer.
