Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna Raj Kapoor passed away recently and the one thing that caught the attention of others during her funeral was the absence of his son Rishi Kapoor. He, his wife and son Ranbir Kapoor were missing from the funeral. Where were they? Let us tell you!
A few days ago before the death of his mother, Rishi Kapoor tweeted that,
“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!”
This made his fans worry about his health. Now some reports suggested that the actor has been diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer. Yes, you read it right! An inside source revealed that the actor has detected with stage 3 cancer, he told,
” Rishi has flown to the US for treatment. The doctors have called him in for a 45-day treatment that includes chemotherapy sessions too. Rishi along with Neetu, Ranbir are currently staying there and now Ranbir will have to come back to begin shooting for his films. Which is when Ridhima Kapoor Sahni will be traveling to be with mom and dad. It’s a trying time for the veteran actor.”

The source further revealed,
“Shooting of Rishi’s film with Juhi Chawla is completely stalled. The producers, Sony don’t want to continue with a replacement. They have put the movie on hold. He’s going to be treated a little differently because he always had a back problem. The doctors are also taking that into consideration. It’s not known which cancer he is suffering from yet.”

But Rishi’s elder brother Randhir Kapoor has denied all such reports and stated:
“We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment. Rishi himself doesn’t know what he is suffering from. He has not even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to an advanced stage. Let him undergo tests peacefully; whatever the reults, we will let everyone know. He only reached America two-three days back and so far he was being prepared for the tests he had to undergo. Depending on what the results are, his line of treatments, medication and other modalities will be decided upon. It’s not fair to speculate things like that.”
Well, whatever it is but one thing is sure he is not well that’s why he is under treatment in the US. So we wish a speedy recovery to the actor.
