The 67-year-old actor was taken to H N Reliance hospital by his family on Wednesday morning. “He is in the hospital. He is suffering from cancer and he has some breathing problem,” Mr. Randhir told the press.
The actor returned to India last September after undergoing treatment for cancer in the U.S. for almost a year and tragically lost the battle today. Rishi Kapoor is survived by his wife Neetu Kapoor, son Ranbir and daughter Riddhima.
Rishi Kapoor was first admitted to a hospital in Delhi where he was attending a family function. At the time, Kapoor had said that he was suffering from an “infection”. After his return to Mumbai, he was again admitted to a hospital with viral fever. The actor recently announced his next project, a remake of Hollywood film The Intern, also featuring Deepika Padukone.
