New Delhi: Rishi Kapoor and his wife Neetu, who temporarily moved to the US for actor's medical treatment, are likely to return to India in the coming months.
Kapoors have been staying in New York since September 2018. A DNA report on Saturday said they will fly out of Big Apple in September. However, there is no official confirmation of development by the couple or the family.
Before moving from India, Rishi Kapoor had tweeted that he "is taking a short leave from work to go to America for some medical care". However, he did not reveal the illness and urged the well-meaning "not to worry or to speculate unnecessarily."
Good evening to all! I get a short leave from work to go to America for some medical care. I urge my guests not to worry or to assume unnecessary speculation. It has been 45 years of "plus" wear on the movies. With your love and good wishes, I will come back soon!

Only in May the 66-year old veteran opened for his illness and said he had no cancer.
In an interview with Deccan Chronicle, he said: "The eighth month of my treatment started in May in the United States, but God was good, I'm in recession, that is, I am now without cancer."
At the same time, Rishi Kapoor also tweeted: "I am now completing eight months here in New York. When will I ever come home?"
Today I'm going to finish eight months here in New York. When will I ever come home?
