Rishi Kapoor also commented that he is cancer-free now but it will take a couple of months more for him to return to India as he needs to get a bone marrow transplant. Rishi ji 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.”
