Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor passes away at 67 in Mumbai battling with cancer. The actor was rushed to a Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital on Wednesday after he complained of breathing problems.
Rishi Kapoor had returned to India in September after undergoing treatment for cancer in the US for almost a year. Randhir Kapoor had revealed in a report that Rishi was rushed to the hospital on Wednesday morning.
Rishi Kapoor had also addressed rumors about his health and shared on Twitter, “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 hospitalized. I was running a slight fever and on the investigation, Dr.s found a patch which could have lead to pneumonia, was detected and is being cured. People seem to have assumed a lot differently. I put to rest all those stories and look forward to entertain and love you.”
