They came, they saw and they conquered. Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan, in their respective years lived a full life. As artistes, they breathed cinema till the end of their journeys. While one came from a legacy that defines the industry even today, the other built one that the world looks up to now.

We saw glimpses of Rishi Kapoor in films like Shree 420 and Mera Naam Joker, but the actor proved that he’s in it for the long haul with his debut film, Bobby in 1973. After that, there was no turning back for this dreamy-eyed man. He ruled the industry as the chocolate boy with films like Chandni, Sargam, Prem Rog and left everyone in awe with his act in the final years of his life. The jolly old man from Kapoor and Sons, 102 Not Out or Do Dooni Chaar will forever be the image of this legendary actor in our eyes. He lived upto the legacy he came from and left an even more celebrated one for the generations to come.
Irrfan Khan made his debut with Salaam Bombay in 1988 and that very first film went on to be nominated for an Academy Award. He went on to portray some of the most cherished characters on the big screen. Some of his highly acclaimed works include films like Maqbool, The Namesake, Slumdog Millionaire, Paan Singh Tomar, Life of Pi, The Lunchbox and the list goes on. He came from nowhere and put the country on the map as an artiste of substance. Not just an actor, Irrfan’s philosophy of life is something we all can learn from. He’s a legend the industry will speak about for many decades to come.
No time will be enough to cope up with the loss of these stars but here’s giving them one final goodbye. Remembering them and the words they lived their lives by, here’s to the brightest stars of the sky, Rishi Kapoor and Irrfan Khan on our very special June cover.
