Rishi Kapoor died at the age of 67 at 8.45 am after a two year-long battle with leukemia at H N Reliance hospital in Mumbai. His family said the actor remained “jovial and determined to live to the fullest right through two years of treatment across two continents”. The actor returned to India last September after undergoing treatment for cancer in the US for almost a year.
Actor Irrfan Khan died at the age of 53 on Wednesday, after being admitted to Mumbai’s Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital where he was under observation for colon infection. The actor had announced in 2018 that he’d been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour.
