Randhir Kapoor has denied all the reports speculating that his younger brother Rishi Kapoor has been diagnosed with cancer, in a statement on Wednesday. 

In an interview, Randhir Kapoor said that it is 'unfair to speculate that he has cancer'."We don't know yet what is the exact nature of his ailment. Rishi himself doesn't know what he's suffering from. He has not even started undergoing tests there; how can people speculate that he has cancer and that too, one that has escalated to an advanced stage."

Randhir Kapoor also said  "Let him undergo tests peacefully; whatever the results, we will let everyone know. He only reached America two-three days ago and so far, he was being prepared for the tests that he has to undergo. Depending on what the results are, his line of treatment, medication and other modalities will be decided upon. It's not fair to speculate things just like that."

Rishi Kapoor tweeted on Saturday: "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 Kapoor is reportedly together with his wife Neetu and son Ranbir. They also missed the funeral of Krishna Raj Kapoor, who died on Monday, a couple of days after the family left for the USA. Krishna Raj Kapoor, the wife of Raj Kapoor, died of a cardiac arrest.

Rishi Kapoor was last seen in Mulk and his next upcoming film is Rajma Chawal.
