In son Ranbir Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor has a shoulder to rely on.

Neetu Kapoor has shared a new picture from New York, where she is currently stationed along with husband Rishi Kapoor as he undergoes treatment for an unspecified illness. Her picture shows the two men in her life, walking together on the streets of New York City. While Rishi and Neetu are in the US, Ranbir returned on Thursday.

She captioned the Instagram image, “When roles are reversed” - implying that Ranbir has become the caregiver to his father, now that Rishi is older. The family has been sharing frequent updates on social media. Only recently, Rishi shared a picture of Ranbir and him posing with actor Robert De Niro, whom they bumped into and promptly asked for a photograph with. He wrote: “Wow moment. Impromptu meeting with Robert De Nero on 65th and 3rd. He knew Ranbir coz he had met him and Anupam and said come over with Kher for a drink! Simplicity and super stardom. I realized I have been such a bloody brat. Cannot get over his demeanor. Thank you Bob!”

Rishi has been visited by several Bollywood actors during his time in New York. He shared a chill walk with Anupam Kher, posed for group photos with Javed Akhtar, Priyanka Chopra, Sonali Bendre and Ranbir’s girlfriend, Alia Bhatt.

Rishi, Ranbir and Neetu had unfortunately missed his mother, Krishna Raj Kapoor’s funeral, but Alia had made sure to FaceTime Ranbir from the ceremony.

Urging fans and the media to avoid speculating about Rishi’s condition, his brother Randhir Kapoor recently told the Times of India, “We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment,” he said. “Rishi himself doesn’t know what he is suffering from. He hasn’t even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to an advanced stage.”
