The veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, known for his back to back blockbusters of the 90s, is back to India after undergoing quite a long medical treatment for cancer in the US.

In July this year, the veteran actor himself hinted that he might be returning home in late August or early September, citing that he is almost free of his ailment and that his cancer was in remission. Rishi Kapoor informed about this on his Twitter back then. He stated that he was under treatment and constant consultation and doctors who might allow him to go home within a month or so.

According to reports, that actor planned a five to six weeks gap after the last treatment before returning to India. During this duration, known as the consolidation or pushback period, he was treated with chemotherapy to eliminate any chances of the illness returning.

Earlier in 2018, Rishi Kapoor left his fans in shock, as he tweeted that he is taking a short gap from his work. He informed that he was going to America for some medical treatment. He had also urged all his well-wishers and fans to not speculate anything unnecessarily.
