Talking about his treatment, he added, “My eighth month of treatment started on May 1 in the US. But God has been kind! I am in remission, meaning now I am cancer-free. I will have to do a bone marrow transplant, which in all probability should take another two months minimum. Being in remission is a big thing and it’s all because of my family and my fans prayers and duas that have worked. I thank them all.”He also said the experience has taught him the importance of patience: “A person like me who has never had patience, this is God’s way to teach me patience. Getting well is a slow procedure. But it makes you grateful for the gift of life.”
Rishi revealed that he was flying to the USA for medical treatment last year. “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 in September 2018.
Rishi was last seen on silver screen in a cameo in Manto, directorial venture of noted actor Nandita Das, reports HT.
