The Kapoor family is going through a  time of crisis. Ranbir Kapoor’s father Rishi Kapoor  is seriously ill. As his medical treatment begins  in  New York his son Ranbir and  Ranbir’s  girlfriend Alia Bhatt have taken time off  to be in NY along with Mrs Neetu Kapoor.

A source close to the family says, “Rishi is taking the  setback very bravely, not even willing to let the disease  depress or defeat him. He  didn’t want anyone except his wife Neetu with him  during the treatment. But Ranbir insisted on being there. And  when he insisted, so did  Alia. Both  took time off from the shooting  of Karan Johar’s production  Bramhastra to be in NY.”

A few weeks ago, Rishi had posted a touching message on Twitter confirming that he was suffering from an ailment for which he was going to the US for treatment. “40 years of wear and tear” he had quipped. Soon there were rumours that Rishi was suffering from cancer, a story that was refuted by brother Randhir who requested the media not to speculate until the test results came in. 

According to the source,  Karan Johar and  Ranbir’s best friend Ayan Mukerjee(who directs Bramhastra) are also  expected  to join the  Kapoor family in NY at some  point in the near future. Adds  the source, “Rishi’s elder sister has bravely battled the  disease for seven years. Rishi is  a fighter. He will emerge a winner.”
Our  prayers are with the family.
