Bollywood fans went into shock when they came to know about the news of veteran actor Rishi Kapoor suffering from cancer post Irrfan Khan and Sonali Bendre. A lot of pictures kept on circulating on the internet for almost an year showing the actor undergoing treatment in New York. Finally the good news of his remission has finally been announced from the actor's mouth that has given a sigh of relief to the fans.

In the month of September 2018, the actor took to his social media to announce that he will be taking a leave from work to undergo a medical treatment in America. He urged his fans not to worry about him and made them believe that he will come back fine and healthy. Few days back it was Rishi's close friend, Rahul Rawail who took to social media to announce that the actor is recovering really fast and will be cancer free.
