Kapoor family seems very happy and joyous at the moment since Rishi Kapoor has returned to India after his prolonged treatment for cancer in New York, USA with wife Neetu Kapoor. Sharing the news of returning to India, Rishi Kapoor writes on Twitter, “BACK HOME!!!!!! 11 Months 11days! Thank you all!” During his stay in New York, several celebrities such as Alia Bhatt, Shahrukh Khan, Gauri Khan, Anupam Kher, Priyanka Chopra, Sonali Bendre, Mukesh Ambani, Tina Ambani and several others have gone to USA and met the actor there. Both the kids of Rishi Kapoor, Ranbir and Riddhima have been visiting them frequently also over last few months.
Regarding his cancer, Rishi Kapoor has said in an interview recently “I had a marrow problem. I had to get it rectified. There was nothing serious as such. But you can’t fly long hours so I had to be here. I went through treatment and thankfully, it was successful”. On their arrival to India, Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor have been snapped by the media at the airport. There has been a huge smile on their faces during the time.
Last year in September, Rishi Kapoor has announced about his visit to New York with a tweet. Reassuring about his treatment, the Kapoor and Sons actor has said few months ago “I can now reassure everyone that the cancer is in remission, I just need a few more weeks before I return home. Once in a year or a year-and-a-half I have to come back for check-ups. When I first came here, everyone was worried for me. The problem was detected when I was shooting in Delhi and was required to dye my hair white. I was told to immediately rush to the Sloan Kettering Hospital. I came here with my hair still dyed white. When word got around that Rishi Kapoor had gone to New York for some kind of medical examination, rumour spread that I was so unwell that my hair had turned white overnight. To counter this, whenever friends of mine came to see me, they posted pictures so people could see what Rishi Kapoor really looked like. Thankfully, my health started improving, week after week, month after month. I had lost 26 kg as I had no appetite for the first four months. Now, I’ve gained seven-eight kg. I don’t want to look too lean, but I haven’t gone back to my original self either. Thank God for that.”
Now, we cannot wait to see the actor onscreen again.
