Alia Bhatt arrives in New York to meet ailing Rishi Kapoor


Alia Bhatt reaches New York to check in her future father-in-law and veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who is currently undergoing treatment in NYC.

After wrapping up the first shooting schedule of ‘Kalank’ in Kargil, the ‘Raazi’ actor took a flight to the US. Alia took to her Instagram account to share a picture from New York. She captioned the pic as, "The Big Apple”.

Alia and Ranbir are rumoured to be dating. Speaking to Mumbai Mirror about their relationship, Rishi had said, “It’s Ranbir’s life. Who he wants to get married to is his prerogative. Neetu likes her, I like her, Ranbir likes her. Get it? I can’t be judgmental. After all, my uncles Shammiji (Shammi Kapoor) and Shashiji (Shashi Kapoor) and I chose our life partners. Ranbir is entitled to choose his.”

Before leaving, Rishi had tweeted to his fans on September 29, “Hello all! I am taking a short leave of absence from work to go to America for some medical treatment. I urge my well wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. It’s been 45 years “plus”of wear and tear at the movies. With your love and good wishes,I will be back soon!”

However, it was highly speculated that the actor is suffering from cancer, “We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment,” Randhir Kapoor dismissed the false story about Rishi's illness. “Rishi himself doesn’t know what he is suffering from. He hasn’t even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to an advanced stage.”
