Rishi Kapoor has reportedly been undergoing some difficulties in his health for some time now for which he had to travel to the United States for treatment. However, there have been recent reports that the actor is luckily on the road to recovery and is now doing well. Though, Rishi has refrained to make any public comments on his health, his wife and actor Neetu Singh often posts small updates on her Instagram handle, consisting of snaps of their family and friends visiting Rishi during this time.
Today, Neetu Singh shared a super cute picture of Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani visiting the family, captioning the series of pictures “Some pple just come to give you Assurance n Mental peace!!! Thank you mr and mrs Ambani for all the support love #grateful.”
Later, Rishi Kapoor took to his Twitter handle to share a picture from the Ambanis’ visit and captioned, “Thank you for seeing us Mukesh and Neeta. We also love you.” In the picture, all four, Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Singh, Mukesh Ambani and Nita Ambani can be seen all smiles.

Cancer is a disease that sucks the life out of someone. We wouldn’t wish it even on our most hated enemies. The world was shocked when Bollywood’s former heartthrob and blue-eyed boy Rishi Kapoor revealed that he was afflicted by the disease. The Kapoor family kept Rishi’s struggle with Cancer all to themselves for over a year.
Rishi Kapoor flew to New York with wife Neetu Kapoor by his side to get treatment for Cancer. His children Riddhima Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor kept shuttling between US and India ensuring support to their dad but also managing their personal work commitments. Ranbir, infact, kept shutting between the shoots of his film Brahmastra and even postponed plans of moving in with girlfriend Alia Bhatt, to be by his father’s side.
Earlier, Rishi Kapoor had spoken to a leading Bollywood website about his struggle with Cancer. “My eighth month of treatment started on May 1 in the US. But God has been kind! I am in remission, meaning now I am cancer-free.”
However, the actor still will have to undergo couple of tests and procedures. “I will have to do a bone-marrow transplant which in all probability should take another two months minimum”, he said.
But it’s his wife of 39 years whom Rishi Kapoor is especially thankful to. “Neetu has stood by me like a rock. Otherwise, I am too difficult a person to handle as far as food and drink are concerned.”
Rishi’s illness has brought him close to his children like never before. He had said emotionally, “My kids Ranbir and Riddhima have really shouldered my problems. Thank you all, thank you the world.” He further added, “A person like me who has never had patience, this is God’s way to teach me patience. Getting well is a slow procedure. But it makes you grateful for the gift of life.”
