Bollywood superstar Rishi Kapoor passed away on Thursday. He was admitted to HN Reliance hospital on Wednesday where he breathed his last.
Kapoor was suffering from cancer and was admitted to the hospital after he developed breathing problems.
He was undergoing treatment for cancer in the US and had returned to India in September 2019. In February, Kapoor was hospitalised twice due to his health issues.
He was first admitted to a hospital in Delhi where he was attending a family function. At the time, Kapoor had said that he was suffering from an "infection".
After his return to Mumbai, he was again admitted to a hospital with viral fever. He was discharged soon after.
Kapoor, who had been quite active on social media, hadn't posted anything on his Twitter account since April 2.
The actor had recently announced his next project, a remake of Hollywood film The Intern, also featuring Deepika Padukone.
