Megastar Amitabh Bachchan on Sunday remembered late actor Rishi Kapoor’s “passion” for cinema, saying nobody could match the “genuineness” his friend had while lip-syncing to a song.

Kapoor passed away on April 30 aged 67 after a two-year long battle with leukaemia.

“No one but no one could lip-sync a song as perfectly as Rishi Kapoor... just look at the passion in his expression. Incredible, even at this age and at an event the genuineness is simply unforgettable,” Bachchan wrote on Twitter alongside a photograph of Kapoor singing and dancing with filmmaker Karan Johar and actor Abhishek Bachchan.

The 77-year-old actor and Kapoor have worked in several films together, including Kabhie Kabhie, Amar Akbar Anthony, Naseeb, Coolie, Ajooba and 102 Not Out.
