Actor Ranbir Kapoor has shared an update on the health of his father Rishi Kapoor who is currently in New York, receiving treatment for an unknown health condition. He said the Mulk actor misses working in films and will be back ‘very soon’.
Speaking at an award function Tuesday evening, Ranbir said, “He’s doing very well, and he will be back very soon. He is missing the movies and working in films. I really hope that with all your wishes and prayers he comes back very soon.”
Rishi left fans in shock when he flew to the United States last year to seek medical treatment. “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” Kapoor had tweeted last year.

Talking about his treatment, Rishi later said in an interview, “My treatment is on, hopefully I will recover soon and God willing I will return. The procedure is long and tedious and one needs immense patience which unfortunately is not one of my virtues.”
“Thankfully, I am not thinking about films anymore, just want to be blank and refresh myself with a more relaxed mind. This break shall be therapeutic for me,” he added.
Friends from the film fraternity, Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, Anupam Kher, Priyanka Chopra, Sonali Bendre, Javed Akhtar, have visited the actor over the past few months. Rishi’s brother Randhir Kapoor, along with his daughter Karisma Kapoor, paid a visit recently.
Neetu Kapoor, who is currently in New York with him, posted an image of Randhir with Karisma. She wrote, “The bestest brothers ever their conversation is only food though #family #bond #forever.” In the picture, Rishi can be seen sharing smiles with Randhir, Karisma and Neetu in a hospital. Karisma captioned the happy picture as, “So wonderful catching up with Chintu uncle in NY ! He looks so handsome and I always enjoy discussing food and restaurants with the Kapoor brothers #family #newyork.”
On the work front, Rishi Kapoor last appeared in Mulk and Rajma Chawal.
