Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor was admitted to Sir H. N. Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai on Wednesday.
Rishi’s brother Randhir Kapoor confirmed the news to indianexpress.com. Randhir said, “He is hospitalised. Neetu is by his side. He is not well.”
Randhir also dismissed rumours of Rishi being on a ventilator.
Rishi Kapoor had returned to India in September last year after almost a year long cancer treatment in New York.
The actor was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and underwent a marrow treatment and recovery that lasted over 11 months. All through he had his wife Neetu Kapoor by his side. His son Ranbir along with his rumoured girlfriend Alia Bhatt kept making regular visits to New York.
Talking about his treatment, Rishi Kapoor had told Hindustan Times, “I feel very fresh and geared up to do any kind of work. My batteries are all charged and I’m looking forward to facing the camera. I just hope I haven’t forgotten acting. Right now, I don’t know if my work will be welcomed or if people are going to trash me. When I was going through treatment, I had a few blood transfusions. And I told Neetu that I hope with the new blood, I haven’t forgotten acting.”Songs Lyrics 4 you
