MUMBAI: Veteran actors Jeetendra and Rishi Kapoor worked together in films such as "Ghar ki Izzat" , " Badalte Rishtey" and "Khazana". On Thursday, hearing about Rishi's death, the 78-year-old Jeetendra said he had no words to express his grief.

"Don't have words right now to express the shock and intensity of emotion in my heart at this point! I've lost a friend, more a brother to me! Even though we met less frequently in the last few years, our friendship has always stood the test of time," he said.
