In an interview , Neetu spoke about the wishes of Rishi, “One was to see Ranbir wearing a turban with an emerald and a broach in the Peshawari tradition–astride a ghodi (horse), on his wedding day. He was totally sentimental about this, he’d keep saying, ‘Kisi din, mujhe hamare bete ko ghodi pe sawaar dekhna hai (Someday I want to see our son on a horse)’.”
Neetu said that his second wish was to see their Krishna Raj house redeveloped and complete, with three separate apartments for Riddhima, Ranbir and Rishi-Neetu. She also added that he would visit the site every day, supervise minute details until Covid-19 happened.
