Rishi recently released actor and friend Anupam Kher’s autobiography named Lessons Life Taught Me Unknowingly. Rishi, who had been undergoing treatment for cancer in New York for almost a year, made his first public appearance following his diagnosis and treatment to release Kher’s book.
Looking well and in fine spirits, Kapoor told the audience he had been discharged from the hospital on Friday. Accompanied by his wife, veteran actor Neetu Kapoor, Rishi recalled that though he is a couple of years older to Kher, they first worked together in the 1988 Yash Chopra film, Vijay, in which Kher had played the role of Kapoor’s grandfather.
Anupam thanked Rishi for releasing his book and said, “For him to be here today is the most glorious thing about my autobiography. We have known him as a film hero, but today he is a real-life hero. He has been here for the last one year battling cancer and he has come out of it.”
