Veran actor Rishi Kapoor breathed his last today after a two-year battle with cancer.

Kapoor had been battling cancer since 2018, and had spent close to a year in New York City for treatment. He returned to Mumbai in September 2019. He had been admitted to hospital with breathing problems on Thursday.

Kapoor is survived by his wife Neetu, his son Ranbir, and his daughter Riddhima and her family.

“Our dear Rishi Kapoor passed away peacefully at 8.45 am in hospital today after a two-year battle with leukemia,” the family said in a statement. “The doctors and medical staff at the hospital said he kept them entertained to the last.”

Kapoor worked with nearly every director and actor of note over a career that spanned five decades. The son of Raj Kapoor and the grandson of Prithviraj Kapoor, Rishi Kapoor first appeared before the camera as a child in the 1950s and later as an adult in the ’70s.
