Actor Amitabh Bachchan tweeted that veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has passed away. He was 67 year’s old.

“T 3517 – He’s GONE .. ! Rishi Kapoor .. gone .. just passed away .. I am destroyed !,” he tweeted.

He was admitted on Wednesday morning to Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital in Mumbai after complaining that he was not feeling well.

Wife Neetu Kapoor was at his side.

The hospitalisation was confirmed by Rishi’s elder brother, actor Randhir Kapoor. “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,” Randhir Kapoor said, according to a report in news18.com.

Asked if it was an emergency situation, Randhir told the website: “That’s why he has gone to the hospital. But I know that he will be alright. Neetu (Kapoor) is by his side.”

Incidentally, Kapoor, who is known to regularly tweet on social media, has not done so after April 2.

In 2018, Rishi Kapoor was diagnosed with cancer for the first time, following which the actor was in New York for nearly a year to undergo treatment. He returned to India in September 2019 after recovering.

Post return to India, Kapoor’s health has frequently been in focus. The actor was admitted to hospital in quick succession in February. Amid speculations about his health, he had been hospitalised in New Delhi in early February, while on a visit to New Delhi.
