Rishi Kapoor on reports of hospitalisation: ‘Had an infection, getting treated. Pollution got me I guess’
Rishi Kapoor said he was suffering from an infection and was undergoing treatment for the same. He could not attend nephew Armaan Jain’s mehendi in Mumbai on Saturday.
Actor Rishi Kapoor on Sunday said he is suffering from an infection and is undergoing treatment for it. “I have had an infection which am getting treated. Nothing dramatic. Pollution got me I guess,” Kapoor told PTI.
Multiple media reports claimed that the actor’s son, Ranbir Kapoor, rushed to Delhi from Mumbai along with girlfriend Alia Bhatt, to be with his father. Ranbir and Alia were spotted at the Mumbai airport on Saturday evening. None of them was seen at Ranbir’s cousin Armaan Jain’s mehendi function in Mumbai on Saturday.
Armaan is engaged to Anissa Malhotra and the two are set to tie the knot soon. He is the son of Rishi’s sister Rima Jain and Manoj Jain.
Meanwhile, Rishi took to Twitter to share his thoughts after Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman presented the union budget on Saturday. He wrote on Twitter, “Just had a thought. Respected Union finance Madame Nirmala Sitharaman whist preparing the Indian annual budget must talk a trillion rupees there a trillion rupees here. Billion would be small denominator. (Continued).”
He wrote in another tweet, “How does she as housewife deal with local vendors or dudhwala at the door. Does she haggle. Aat Anna kam karo sava rupaya aur kam kar. Strange na?This is life!”
Rishi’s brother Radhir Kapoor, niece Karisma Kapoor, her mother Babita and Shweta Bachchan Nanda were seen arriving for the function in Mumbai. Armaan’s brother Aadar Jain’s rumoured girlfriend and actor Tara Sutaria was also among the guests.
