Rishi Kapoor, in an interview with the Deccan Chronicle, had recently shared how his wife, Neetu Kapoor and children, Ranbir and Riddhima have been pillars of strength for him during his struggle with cancer. He was quoted as saying, "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, in another interview, had recently revealed that he is now cancer-free and is currently in remission period. He had shared, “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 Kapoor's son, Ranbir Kapoor, had talked about his father during the Zee Cine Awards recently. He 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?” (You May Like: Kareena Kapoor, Taimur Ali Khan's Latest Pic From Europe Holiday With Karisma Kapoor, Samaira, Kiaan)
