BOLLYWOOD: Rishi Kapoor is currently in the US, accompanied by wife Neetu and son Ranbir for ‘some medical treatment’. Recently, an Indian publication reported that the Bobby star is suffering from life-threatening disease.
The eldest Kapoor son, Randhir Kapoor, on Wednesday slammed reports suggesting his younger brother, Rishi is suffering from third- stage cancer.
The speculation gained steam after Rishi was not seen at the funeral and prayer meet of his mother Krishna Raj Kapoor.
Randhir, in an interview with Times of India, addressed the matter and said, “We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment. Rishi himself doesn’t know what he’s suffering from.”
He further added, “He has not even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to advanced stage. Let him undergo tests peacefully; whatever the results, we will let everyone know.”
Rishi on Saturday said he was leaving for the US to seek medical treatment.
