Even though actor Rishi Kapoor never revealed officially that he had been suffering from cancer, a social media post by veteran filmmaker Rahul Rawail finally does so. Rawail, who has also been a good friend of Kapoor, posed a happy picture of himself posing with the actor and in the caption, he wrote that Rishi Kapoor is free from cancer now. His post has gone viral with the fans across the world sending best wishes to the actor for finally being able to cope up with the illness.


Kapoor announced around seven months back that he was leaving the country. It was revealed that he went to New York to get the treatment for an undisclosed ailment. Later, a post made by his wife Neetu Kapoor on New Year hinted that the actor had indeed been battling cancer. The caption on her post read, “Happy 2019 no resolutions only wishes this year !!! Less pollution traffic!! Hope in future cancer is only a zodiac sign !!! No hatred less poverty loads of love togetherness happiness n most imp. Good health.” (sic)

However, no official confirmation came from their side. Even Kapoor’s brother, Randhir Kapoor refused to give away details about the identification of his illness and maintained that he had been recuperating well in New York.

Recently, in his emotional acceptance speech upon winning the Best Actor trophy at Filmfare Awards 2019, Rishi Kapoor’s son, Ranbir Kapoor talked about what had been going in his father’s mind all this while. He said that his father is going through a tough phase in life and keeps on wondering if he will ever be able to make a comeback on screen. Ranbir added that the veteran actor often asks him to give him details of the industry while expressing his doubts over whether he will get work again in movies or not.

Well, if what Rahul Rawail has revealed is true, here’s wishing more health and happiness to Rishi Kapoor!
