Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor left his worldwide fans in suspense after he flew to New York with his wife Neetu Singh for a medical treatment for an undisclosed illness. Rishi, who is an avid social media user, informed his fans through a tweet that he is taking a break and said that he will be back soon.
“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,” The 66-year-old actor tweeted in September 2018.
While undergoing medical treatment, Rishi kept on sharing his pictures from USA, but he never disclosed about the illness he is going through.
