New Delhi: Actor Rishi Kapoor recently left for US for his medical treatment with wife Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir. On September 29, the veteran actor had shared post saying, "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!" (sic).
In the meantime, DNA quoted a source saying that the Kapoors are likely to stay in US for sometime and they have rented an apartment in Big Apple. Ranbir, who has also accompanied them, will however be coming back to India for his professional commitment.
The source said that Rishi's daughter Riddhima Kapoor Sahni will be joining her parents there.
"Rishi, Neetu and Ranbir are absolutely devastated with the passing away of Krishna Raj Kapoor. And, they have been continuously in touch with their family members, who are keeping them updated on everything related to her sudden sad demise and the future course of action as far as the family goes," the source said.
Krishna, the wife of late legendary actor-filmmaker Raj Kapoor, passed away on Monday morning after suffering a cardiac arrest. She is survived by her sons Randhir Kapoor, Rishi, Rajiv Kapoor, and daughters Ritu Nanda and Rima Kapoor Jain.
In the meantime, the Kapoors have requested for privacy at this hour.
