Rishi Kapoor is in New York for the past nine months. The actor is undergoing treatment for cancer and is in good health now. However, there are a few sessions of treatment left and the actor quashed the rumours of him returning to his homeland for his birthday on September 4, reports mid-day.
The senior actor spoke why it isn't possible for him to return soon. "I have to be here for 11 months, so I will not be back before the end of August. It's been a difficult time, very taxing, but Neetu (wife), and my children (Ranbir and Riddhima) have been very supportive. I am grateful to everyone. I am waiting to come back and raring to get going. I will plan my return five-six weeks after my last treatment. It is called consolidation or pushback, whereby I will have to undergo chemotherapy to ensure that the ailment does not return.This is the second time I am going through the treatment. 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," said the actor.
The 66-year-old actor also revealed details about his treatment and said, "On the subject of my health, thanks to the prayers and good wishes of my family, friends and fans, I am perfect now. The cancer is in remission, but I am still under treatment.
