On Wednesday, Rishi Kapoor met Hollywood legend Robert De Niro in New York. The veteran actor jumped in joy on meeting the legend.

Sharing a picture with son Ranbir and De Niro along the roadside, Rishi Kapoor wrote, “Wow moment. Impromptu meeting with Robert De Nero on 65th and 3rd. He knew Ranbir coz he had met him and Anupam and said come over with Kher for a drink! Simplicity and super stardom. I realized I have been such a bloody brat. Cannot get over his demeanor. Thank you Bob! (sic).”

Rishi Kapoor, who is currently undergoing treatment in New York met with Sonali Bendre, Anupam Kher and Priyanka Chopra. Alia Bhatt, who is rumoured to be dating Ranbir Kapoor met ailing Rishi Kapoor after wrapping up the first schedule of ‘Kalank’.

The veteran actor tweeted on Tuesday night: "This is to dispel all notions and wrong speculations of my hair turning grey/white overnight. My hair was dyed by Avan Contractor for a film produced by Honey Trehan and Sony pictures directed by Hitesh Bhatia. The film is untitled. Trust this clears the air."

He also shared a picture of the final look of the character and wrote: "This is the final look of the film. Sharma ji. All grey! Will revert to original hair colour soon."

Writing a note to his fans, Rishi Kapoor said, "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!"
