Rishi Kapoor, who is being treated for cancer in the US, frequently tweets about being homesick and on Independence Day, the 66-year-old actor added another tweet to the bundle. Rishi Kapoor wrote on a picture from the sets of his 1998 film Aa Ab Laut Chalen (originally shared by a fan), "Filming in New York, 1998 - 'Aa Ab Laut Chalen' - title so symbolic today!" Earlier it was reported that Rishi Kapoor will return to India in September in time to celebrate his birthday with his family and friends here, however, speaking to Mumbai Mirror last month, the actor dismissed it as speculation. At that time Rishi Kapoor had also said, "I really miss home. I have to be here for 11 months, so I will not be back before the end of August. I am waiting to come back and raring to get going. I am hoping that I can plan an end-August return."
Here's Rishi Kapoor's latest tweet about homecoming:

Earlier this month, Rishi Kapoor tweeted about missing home in New York and about 'living in a concrete jungle (Manhattan).' He wrote, "Confession. Living in this concrete jungle (Manhattan) for so long, you don't get to see much of the sky. Yesterday was by the riverside, saw and heard an aircraft soar above. A visual and sound so common back home, loved that annoyance. I guess it meant freedom and getting back home."
