The happy photo was captioned, “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.” And that one sentence dropped a manor hint at Kapoor’s sickness and got everyone back home thinking if he was indeed undergoing treatment for cancer is.
We got in touch Randhir again and asked him about the said photo and how the caption is leading to speculations. And this time, he neither denied nor verified anything about his brother’s medical condition. “I don’t know much about it but this much I can tell you that [Rishi] is doing well, that’s all,” Randhir told us.
When prodded if Rishi was diagnosed with cancer, Randhir added, “Let people say whatever they want to. That he is doing well is evident from the photos that I, too, have seen.
