In a recent interview, Ranbir talked about dealing with his father's loss and shared how his past two years were like.  ''It has been quite a big year in my life, starting with losing a parent, which I don’t think has seeped in yet. I am still, in some ways, dealing with that,'' Ranbir said.  Rishi Kapoor's iconic films over the years

“I think the person I am is because of the strong value system that he imbibed in my sister and me. He was an extremely passionate man, a family man,” he said.

''Just the time I spent with him in these last two years, before he passed, walking with him from the hotel to the hospital while he was getting his chemotherapy, just walking in silence and being around him… Everything has gone so fast. I don’t know if I have really formed words yet about what impact he has had on me, professionally and personally, but I do know that it’s the largest impact a human being has had on my life so far,'' he added.  From Sushant Singh Rajput to Irrfan Khan; Indian stars we lost this year
