Notably, Alia’s boyfriend, actor Ranbir Kapoor is also currently in NYC, where his father Rishi Kapoor in undergoing treatment for a yet-undisclosed disease.

Speculations have been rife about the nature of Rishi’s disease ever since he, wife Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir missed his mother Krishna Raj Kapoor’s funeral last month.

However, putting all rumours to rest, Rishi’s elder brother Randhir Kapoor earlier told Times of India, “We don’t know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment. Rishi himself doesn’t know what he is suffering from. He hasn’t even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to an advanced stage.”

“Depending on what the results are, his line of treatment, the medication and other modalities will be decided upon,” he added.

Rishi himself announced his going away before he left for NYC. “Hello all! I am taking a short leave of absence from work to go to America for some medical treatment. I urge my well-wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. It’s been 45 years “plus” of wear and tear at the movies. With your love and good wishes, I will be back soon!” Rishi tweeted on September 29.

While there, he has been meeting several other actors, including Sonali Bendre, Priyanka Chopra and Anupam Kher, who are also currently in NYC.
