Over the last few weeks, several websites had reported that ailing actor Rishi Kapoor would be returning to India after his treatment in the US. Rishi has been based in the States for several months now, after he was diagnosed with a serious disease. In the last few months, several co-stars and family members have visited him in the US including Alia Bhatt, son Ranbir Kapoor's girlfriend.
According to these unsubstantiated reports, Rishi is said to have communicated to a friend that he’s likely to return to India by the end of March.
However, when we got in touch with Rishi, he outright denied any plans to return to India in the near future. So what is Rishi Kapoor’s health report?
Here is the true picture: the much-loved brilliant actor has responded well to the treatment. But the healing process is taking time.
Says a source close to the Kapoor family, “Rishi is homesick and very eager to return home. They have a wedding to plan (son Ranbir Kapoor is to marry Alia Bhatt). And he’s counting the days. But he’s not ready yet to return. His treatment is slow but steady. Hopefully he can come home in a few months. But end of this month? No way!”
Ranbir Kapoor’s film Brahmastra recently revealed its logo and the film is set to release this year. Hopefully Rishi Kapoor can be back in time for its release. Brahmastra is a trilogy directed by Ayan Mukerji and also stars Alia Bhatt and Amitabh Bachchan.
