Rishi Kapoor had recently informed his fans on Twitter that he will be flying off to US for some medical treatment and urged all his well-wishers not to unnecessary speculate anything about his health condition. Despite that, several rumours have now started making rounds on the internet that the veteran actor has been diagnosed with cancer.

Reports that Rishi was suffering from cancer started doing the rounds following his absence from the funeral of his mother, Krishna Raj Kapoor, who passed away on October 1. His wife Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir are said to accompanied him to the US.

"This is all rumour. He is at the moment fine. As he is in great pain, he will be undergoing test tomorrow. He did discuss it with us regarding his health," Randhir told PTI.

However, his brother and veteran actor Randhir Kapoor has cleared the air saying that the tests haven't been started yet. "Rishi is in the pink of health. His tests will start on Thursday in New York. Until we get the tests done and get the results, how can we say what is the problem? This is a very difficult and bad time for us as our mother Krishna ji passed away and now these kinds of rumours upset us," Randhir Kapoor told ABP News.

Meanwhile, other Bollywood actors Sonali Bendre and Irrfan Khan are currently being treated for their high-grade cancer.
