Rishi and his wife Neetu travelled to the Big Apple for the former's cancer treatment in September 2018. However, it was only in April this year that the nation got to know about the actor suffering from Big C and that's when he was declared cancer-free. Since then, several Bollywood celebrities have been flocking to meet the couple. It was also being stated that Rishi and Neetu will be returning to India before his birthday, but alas, there isn't any further update on the same. Well, all we wish is Rishiji returns home hale and hearty. Happy Birthday, Chintuji!
