EXCLUSIVE: Rishi Kapoor suffering from third stage cancer? Details inside
Just a few days ago, Rishi Kapoor left for the US in order to get medical treatment along with his wife Neetu Singh and son Ranbir Kapoor. This news was shared by the actor himself on the micro-blogging site Twitter.
Asking his fans and followers not to speculate about his health, the actor had written, “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!”

Just a day after his departure, Rishi’s mother Krishna Raj Kapoor passed away due to cardiac arrest. Rishi, Neetu Singh and their son Ranbir couldn’t attend the funeral as they were in US for his treatment and that left everyone wondering about the severity of his health.
Now a source close to the Kapoor family exclusively told BollywoodBubble that the Kapoor senior is detected with third stage cancer. “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 travelling to be with her parents. It’s a trying time for the veteran actor,” shared the source.
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.”
We wish for a speedy recovery of the actor. For more updates on Rishi Kapoor’s health, keep reading our space.
