From the last year, Rishi Kapoor has been staying in New York for his cancer treatment. Rishi Kapoor’s wife Neetu Kapoor has been accompanying him there also. Some time back in December 2018, Ranbir Kapoor and his girlfriend Alia Bhatt have gone to meet the Kapoor & Sons actor in New York and celebrated New Year together. Before going to USA, Rishi Kapoor has announced on Twitter that he is taking a break from movies and going for a medical treatment. Since the time in September 2018, Rishi Kapoor has not come back to India.
Some time ago, Rishi Kapoor has informed us “My eighth month of treatment started on May 1 in the US. But God has been kind! I am in remission, meaning now I am cancer-free.” Later on, Rishi Kapoor has said that it has been a huge struggle for him in the first few months. He has lost 24 kilos very quickly. Regarding the medical treatment, Rishi Kapoor has disclosed “I had to wait for six to eight weeks between cycles and that is why it has taken so long. It would have been easier had I been in Mumbai, but my condition needed me to be in New York”
During Rishi Kapoor’s stay in New York, lots of celebrities have gone and met him such as Priyanka Chopra, Sonali Bendre, Anupam Kher, Shahrukh Khan and several others. Earlier, Rishi Kapoor has said “My kids Ranbir and Ridhima have really shouldered my problems.” In about two months, Rishi Kapoor is going to return in India.
