Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor have returned to India. The actor who has been in the United States for the last 11 months and was undergoing treatment for cancer has confirmed via Twitter that he is back to his country, his home.
BACK HOME!!!!!! 11 Months 11days! Thank you all!— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) September 9, 2019
Rishi had earlier hinted about his return to India during the Ganpati celebrations in an interview to Mid-Day. He said, “Celebrating Ganpati is a family tradition. So, I am hoping to be part of it.” Ganesh Chaturthi is celebrated with great enthusiasm by the entire Kapoor family at the RK Studio which was sold off this year to Godrej Properties. A section of the studio remained open for public for darshan and morning and evening aartis were held at the makeshift pandal daily. On the day of immersion, the family members including Randhir, Rishi, Ranbir Kapoor and others used to come together.
Meanwhile, Anupam Kher who has been in US for some time and was part of Rishi Kapoor's birthday dinner wished the couple a happy journey. He tweeted, “Dearest #NeetuKapoor and @chintskap !! Here is wishing you a safe trip back to India after being in New York for almost a year. I have mixed feelings. I am happy & sad at the same time. I am going to miss you terribly. We had a great time together. Thank you. Love & prayers.”

Rishi on several occasions has talked about the days he was undergoing treatment and the support he received from his near ones. "Neetu has stood by me like a rock. Otherwise, I am too difficult a person to handle as far as food and drink are concerned... My kids Ranbir and Ridhima have really shouldered my problems," Rishi Kapoor told Deccan Chronicle.
Bollywood celebs including Ranbir’s former girlfriend Deepika Padukone, actors Aamir Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan, Sonali Bendre, Vicky Kaushal, Karan Johar and many others recently paid visits to the veteran actor in the US in recent past.
