Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who has been in the US for quite some time now for treatment, was recently snapped posing for a family picture with his wife Neetu and sisters. The picture, which was shared by Neetu on her social media page, hinted at Rishi returning to India soon. Rishi’s sisters Rima Jain and Ritu Nanda have been by his side the whole time he was undergoing treatment.
In the picture, the Kapoor siblings could be seen standing arm-in-arm as they posed for a picture with Neetu and niece Nitasha Nanda. With Rima heading back to India, Neetu shared the snap on her Instagram page with a caption reading, “One of the Quintet leaves!! Will miss you @rimosky will soon be on the same flight back.”

Not much is known about Rishi’s illness, but in an earlier interview with Bollywood Hungama he had said, “My treatment is on, hopefully, I will recover soon and God willing I will return. The procedure is long and tedious and one needs immense patience which unfortunately is not one of my virtue.”
“Thankfully, I am not thinking about films anymore, just want to be blank and refresh myself with a more relaxed mind. This break shall be therapeutic for me,” he had added.
Rishi had announced in September last year that he was leaving for the US for treatment, and since then he has been staying with Neetu in New York. His children, Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, have been visiting him from time to time. A good number of Bollywood stars too have been to visit him, including Alia Bhatt, who is rumoured to be Ranbir’s girlfriend.
After starring in numerous movies, Rishi was last seen in movie Rajma Chawal along with Anirudh Tanwar and Amyra Dastur. Directed by Leena Yadav and produced by Gulab Singh Tanwar and Aseem Bajaj, it had been released by Netflix on November 30, 2018.
