Rishi Kapoor has passed away after being suddenly hospitalised early morning on Wednesday. Amitabh Bachchan tweeted, confirming the sad news.
It has to be the worst year ever. Things were not supposed to pan out this way, not even midway through the year, but what is currently happening is unfathomable. Amitabh Bachchan has just revealed that legendary actor Rishi Kapoor has passed away in the hospital he was admitted at early Wednesday morning. He tweeted a couple of minutes ago confirming the same: “He’s GONE .. ! Rishi Kapoor .. gone .. just passed away .. I am destroyed !” Big B wrote in his tweet.

A couple of hours ago, Rishi Kapoor’s brother, Randhir Kapoor, confirmed his hospitalisation to a news portal. and said, “It’s true that he has been admitted to the hospital. He is in Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital. He was not keeping well and had some problem, so we admitted him early this morning.”
When asked whether his condition was critical, Randhir had denied it (understandably), saying, “Had there been one, I would also have been at the hospital. He will be alright. Neetu (Kapoor) is by his side.”
Just last year in September, Rishi Kapoor had returned from his treatment for cancer. He had been stationed abroad for treatment and had been undergoing chemotherapy sessions. His wife, Neetu Kapoor, was beside him all through the process. This year, he was hospitalised twice. once when he was in Delhi attending a family function. At that time, he had revealed that he had an infection. The second time, he was admitted due to viral fever.
