Rishi Kapoor’s Solid Rock Neetu Kapoor
Earlier it seemed like Rishi Kapoor wanted to keep his yearlong battle against cancer to himself for personal reasons. But recently he confirmed with Deccan Chronicle while giving his interview that he is cancer-free. He shared that on 1st May his eight-month treatment was started and now he is in remission.

Rishi Kapoor gives all the credit to his family’s prayer and friend’s prayers that seem to have worked wonders for him. He thanks everybody and specially Neetu for standing by him all the time. He mentioned Neetu to be solid rock because he is well aware of how difficult a person it is to handle hi when it comes to drinks and food.
