Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who is currently in the US for treatment of cancer, recently visited a salon where they played his song Mai Shayar To Nahi after realising that he is an Indian and the actor was overwhelmed with the gesture. Rishi shared a video on Twitter and wrote, “My anthem played in a salon whilst getting a hair cut. Russian recognized me and played it from his note book. Thank you Sergie.”
The post reminded filmmaker Rahul Dholakia of a similar incident. Rahul responded to Rishi and wrote, “What a moment ! Once we were at the Venetian Casino in Vegas, and on seeing my mum and aunt in a saree, the musician started playing Mr. Raj Kapoor’s signature tune on his violin ! The two ladies had such a big smile on their face, they talked about it for 20 years. Jai Hind.”
An elated Rishi also shared a picture early Saturday from Suniel Shetty’s visit. Suniel paid a visit to Rishi alongwith his wife Manna. In the picture, Rishi and Neetu are posing with Suniel and Manna. “Thank you Sunil and Manna Shetty. You both are such a gem of a couple. God Bless! Love you guys,” Rishi wrote alongside the picture.
Earlier on Independence Day, Rishi shared pictures of world monuments lit up in the colours of the tricolour.
Rishi and Neetu are currently stationed in the US as the 102 Not Out star gets treated for cancer. Son Ranbir Kapoor, apart from sister Riddhima and girlfriend Alia Bhatt, often visits him and has been a constant support for the actor through the times. He earlier told Mumbai Mirror, “I have to be here for 11 months, so I will not be back before the end of August. It’s been a difficult time, very taxing, but Neetu (wife), and my children (Ranbir and Riddhima) have been very supportive. I am grateful to everyone. I am waiting to come back and raring to get going. I will plan my return five-six weeks after my last treatment. It is called consolidation or pushback, whereby I will have to undergo chemotherapy to ensure that the ailment does not return. This is the second time I am going through the treatment. I am hoping that I can plan an end-August return but all this talk that I will be back in early September for my birthday, is again nothing but speculation.”

Several other celebrities from Bollywood, Deepika Padukone, Malaika Arora Khan, Karan Johar and others have also visited Rishi and Neetu in New York through the year.
Talking about his stay, Rishi recently told Hindustan Times, “I had to wait for six to eight weeks between cycles and that is why it has taken so long. It would have been easier had I been in Mumbai but my condition needed me to be in New York.”
