Rishi Kapoor, who is undergoing his medical treatment in New York for cancer, is likely to return to India by August end. In an interview with Mumbai Mirror, Rishi Kapoor said, ''Yes, I am trying to return by August end, depending on what the doctors at the hospital say. I have recovered well and I am feeling good. Must be 100% fit by the time I am back.''
''He is 100% cancer-free, and under the doctors’ observation for the time being. He is staying at a private apartment and enjoying life in the Big Apple. Being a cricket buff, he is also following the on-going cricket World Cup in England and keeps discussing the results of the matches with his friends in India,'' a source was quoted as saying.
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.
Speaking to Deccan Chronicle, Rishi Kapoor had recently said that he is "grateful for the gift of life" and had added: "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. I will have to do a bone-marrow transplant which in all probability should take another two months minimum.''
On the work front, Rishi Kapoor was last seen in the 2018 film Rajma Chawla.
