Before leaving for New York, Rishi Kapoor tweeted about his treatment and also requested his fans not to speculate unnecessarily. “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!” he tweeted on September 29. 

However, we all know Bollywood is a world of speculations and it is bound to happen at any cost. It is rumoured that Rishi Kapoor has been diagnosed with cancer and undergoing treatment in the US. Rubbishing all such reports, his elder brother Randhir Kapoor told ET on Wednesday, “We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment. Rishi himself doesn’t know what he’s suffering from. He has not even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to advanced stage. Let him undergo tests peacefully; whatever the results, we will let everyone know. He only reached America two-three days ago and so far, he was being prepared for the tests that he has to undergo. Depending on what the results are, his line of treatment, medication and other modalities will be decided upon. It’s not fair to speculate things just like that."

Rishi Kapoor, Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir also missed Krishna Raj Kapoor’s funeral.
