The 66-year-old actor Rishi Kapoor, who is undergoing treatment for cancer in New York since September last year was visited by a popular Pakistani actress.
A fan asked Rishi on Twitter: "@chintskap Chintuji who are these ladies.... Me too wana #selfie". To which, Rishi Kapoor replied: "She is the famous actor from Pakistan,Mawra Hocane (left) and her friend Khatija. Sweet of them to visit us" [sic]
Here's the post -
Mawra is currently holidaying in New York with her friend and visited the actor during this time.
Mawra has always been close to the Kapoor household and have been spotted with Riddhima's daughter and at other events too.
Apart from Mawra, Shahrukh Khan, Ambanis, several other celebrities including Deepika Padukone, Vicky Kaushal, Boman Irani Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, Anupam Kher, Priyanka Chopra, Sonali Bendre, and Javed Akhtar also paid a visit to the veteran actor in the past few months.
Rishi has been in New York since last year to seek medical treatment for an unknown health condition. He is frequently visited by his children Ranbir and Riddhima.
Ranbir Kapoor at an event said his father Rishi Kapoor is in good health and will come home in a month or two.
"He is doing much better and hopefully he should be back in a month or two. His spirits are up. He gets lots of positivity from you all.
"It has been a hard one year for him. His desire and only endeavour in life is to act in movies. So this one year sabbatical has been a little setback for him. But he is doing really well for himself," Ranbir told reporters at an event.
In an interview with a newspaper, Rishi had said, “Neetu has stood by me like a rock. Otherwise I am too difficult a person to handle as far as food and drink are concerned.My kids Ranbir and Ridhima have really shouldered my problems. A person like me who has never had patience, this is God’s way to teach me patience. Getting well is a slow procedure. But it makes you grateful for the gift of life.”
On the work front, Rishi Kapoor last appeared in 'Mulk' and 'Rajma Chawal'.
