Did Neetu Kapoor just confirm Rishi Kapoor’s battle with cancer?

In late September, Rishi Kapoor had announced on twitter that he will be going on a break to the US for some medical treatment. Soon, social media was rife with rumours that the veteran actor was suffering from cancer. However, Kapoor scion cleared the air by stating he was undergoing mere wear and tear treatment. On 29th September, he posted the below tweet from his official account:


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!


Speculation mounted over Rishi’s health after he was not seen at the cremation ceremony of his mother Krishna Raj Kapoor. However, his brother Randhir Kapoor quashed all the rumours, saying ‘Rishi himself doesn’t know what he’s suffering from’. 


The Kapoors did not reveal as to what illness Kapoor is battling. But for the first time, Rishi’s wife, Neetu Kapoor seems to have hinted at the nature of her husband’s illness in her latest Instagram post.

Neetu Kapoor took to Instagram to share a perfect family photo with Rishi, Ranbir, Alia and Riddhima, and wrote,


“Happy 2019 no resolutions only wishes this year !!! Less pollution traffic!! Hope in future cancer is only a zodiac sign!!! No hatred less poverty loads of love togetherness happiness n most imp. Good health.”


This cryptic post from Neetu Kapoor suggests a different hook. While so far, there has been no confirmation from the Kapoor family about the nature of Rishi’s ailment, Mrs. Kapoor’s instagram post hinted at Rishi Kapoor suffering from the dreaded Cancer.



The family were also joined by Ranbir’s sister Ridhima Kapoor Sahini, her husband Bharat Sahni and daughter Samara and also his rumoured girlfriend Alia Bhatt.

Neetu and Alia have bonded quite well, ever since Ranbir started dating Alia. It is no secret that Alia is considered a member of the family. Riddhima Sahni had earlier even gifted Alia a bracelet, just after she started dating Ranbir.
