Big C! This phrase gives us chills down our spine and we can’t even imagine, what it must be for the people fighting cancer. Recently, sadly enough but many of our Bollywood icons have battled this deadly disease- Irrfan Khan, Sonali Bendre, Tahira Kashyap, Rishi Kapoor, among others. But the silver lining in all of these cases is that they have all fought the battle like a true warrior. Reports on Rishi Kapoor’s then-alleged cancer had started doing the rounds in September 2018 when he had announced a sabbatical from work.

Rishi Kapoor had taken to Twitter to announce the same and in it, he had mentioned the words ‘for some medical treatment’. And that had left us all panicked. While we all were trying to figure out the real reason behind Rishi Kapoor shifting to New York for a while, it was only on January 01, 2019, when Rishi Kapoor’s wife, Neetu Kapoor had hinted that her husband is suffering from cancer.
Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Kapoor have been living in New York since September 2018, and on a regular basis, they have been paid visits by many Bollywood celebrities.

Rishi Kapoor is now all hale and hearty and is cancer-free! His brother, Randhir Kapoor had recently shared with the IANS that Rishi ji is soon going to get back to India. Randhir ji was quoted as saying, “Rishi is doing much better. He has to finish his course of treatment, and will be back in India in the next few months.”
Rishi Kapoor had recently shared with the Deccan Chronicle that his wife, Neetu Kapoor and kids- Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, have been his pillars of strength all this while. The Kapoor and Sons actor had revealed, “Neetu has stood by me like a rock. Otherwise, I am too difficult a person to handle as far as food and drinks are concerned. My kids Ranbir and Ridhima have really shouldered my problems.”
Talking more about his treatment and commenting on his soon-to-happen return to India, Rishi Kapoor had further 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. Being in remission is a big thing and it’s all because of my family and my fans prayers and duas that have worked. I thank them all.” (Don't Miss: Varun Dhawan And Natasha Dalal To Have A Royal Wedding In Jodhpur Not In Goa? Details Inside)
