Mumbai: Actor Randhir Kapoor has responded to reports about younger brother Rishi Kapoor’s health, saying the actor, who is currently in the US for treatment, is yet to undergo tests.
“This is all rumour. He is at the moment fine. As he is in great pain, he will be undergoing test tomorrow. He did discuss it with us regarding his health,” Randhir said.
The report became viral after Rishi Kapoor along with his family – Neetu Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor were missing from Kapoor matriarch Krishna Raj Kapoor’s funeral. His wife Neetu and son Ranbir accompanied him to the USA for medical treatment. However, his daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahani was spotted at the funeral of her grandmother on 1 October.
On 29 September, Rishi had informed his fans about taking a break from work for “medical treatment” in America and urged them not to worry or “unnecessarily speculate”.
Earlier, the Mulk actor wrote on social media, “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.”
