Rishi Kapoor reveals, “I had lost 26 kg as I had no appetite for the first four months. Now, I have gained seven-eight kg. I don’t want to look too lean, but I haven’t gone back to my original self either. Thank God for that.” On being asked about his return to Mumbai, he said that he has to be there for 11 months, so he will not be back before the end of August. It’s been a very difficult time, but his wife and his children have been very supportive.

“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,” he adds. On the workfront, Rishi Kapoor will be next seen in Smeep Kang’s ‘Jhootha Kahin Ka’ along with Omkar Kapoor, Sunny Singh, Jimmy Sheirgill, Lillete Dubey and Manoj Joshi in the lead. The movie is slated to release on July 19.
