He had further added as to how his patience was never exhausted, "A person like me who has never had patience, this is God’s way to teach me patience. Getting well is a slow procedure. But it makes you grateful for the gift of life."
In another interview, Rishi Kapoor had shared that he is in remission. Rishi ji had retorted, “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.”
Rishi ji's son, Ranbir Kapoor, during the Zee Cine Awards which concluded recently had talked about his father and had said, “Whenever I speak to him, he only talks about movies. He only talks about ‘how is this film?’, ‘how is this film doing?’, ‘how is this performance?’, what are you doing in this scene? And more so, he speaks to me about his insecurities that when he gets back, will he get to work in movies? Whether people will offer him films? Will he be able to act in movies?”
Rishi Kapoor had made our hearts skip a beat when he had shared about his break from work and going to New York for some treatment. He had tweeted, “Hello all! I am taking a short leave of absence from work to go to America for some medical treatment. I urge my well-wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. It’s been 45 years ‘plus’ of wear and tear at the movies. With your love and good wishes, I will be back soon.” (You May Like: Mira Kapoor Posts A 16-Year-Old Picture Of Shahid And We Are Still In Love With The 'Ishq' Boy)
