On Wednesday Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor was admitted to hospital in Mumbai . The cause of the hospitalization has not yet been confirmed.
“It’s true that he has been admitted to the hospital. He is in Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital. He was not keeping well and had some problem, so we admitted him early this morning,” Rishi Kapoor’s elder brother Randhir Kapoor confirmed to a leading daily.
When asked if there was an emergency, Randhir said, “Had there been one, I would also have been at the hospital. He will be alright. Neetu (Kapoor) is by his side.” Rishi Kapoor returned to India last year in September after nearly a year of cancer treatment in the US.
He was also admitted to the hospital earlier this year in February after being diagnosed with an infection.
The actor later gave an update about his health on social media to his fans. He was shooting in Delhi at the time when pollution caused him to catch the infection.
Rishi Kapoor’s tweet reads, “Dear family, friends, foes, and followers. I have been overwhelmed by all your concern about my health. Thank you. I have been filming in Delhi past 18 days and because of the pollution and my low count of neutrophils, I caught an infection whereby I had to be hospitalised.”
In September 2018, the actor moved to New York and returned in 2019, after nearly a year. He had been accompanied in his battle with the deadly disease by his wife Neetu Kapoor. He was frequently visited by his son Ranbir Kapoor, and his girlfriend, actress Alia Bhatt.
