Bollywood star couple Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh has been in the US since the past one year. According to several reports, and some confirmation from fellow actors, the former was diagnosed with a form of cancer which is why he decided to travel to America for treatment. Throughout his stay in New York, many celebrities came to meet the Rishi and pray for his recovery. Even Rishi and Neetu’s son, Ranbir came to visit his parents with rumoured girlfriend Alia Bhatt. Now, after having spent a year in treatment, it looks like Rishi might be doing well and will be returning to India very soon.
Fellow Bollywood star, Anupam Kher, who resides in New York, had hosted the couple many times during the course of Rishi’s treatment. This morning, he took to Twitter to bid farewell to Rishi and Neetu as they head back to India. He wrote, “Dearest Neetu and Rishi, here is wishing you a safe trip back to India after being in New York for almost a year. I have mixed feelings. I am happy and sad at the same time and I am going to miss you terribly. We had a great time together. Thank you. Love and prayers.”

Earlier this week, Rishi expressed his desire of returning back to India, especially to take part in the Ganpati celebrations back home. In an interview, he had said, “Celebrating Ganpati is a family tradition. So, I am hoping to be part of it.” However, there was probably some unfinished business that Rishi and Neetu had to tend to first. Upon his return, Rishi will be joining the Emraan Hashmi and Sobhita Dhulipala in a comedy thriller called The Body. He will then also get on board with Juhi Chawla for an untitled Hitesh Bhatia project. Rishi’s project with Juhi will mark the duo’s first venture together in 10 years.
