Bollywood stars Rishi Kapoor and Neetu Singh recently returned back to India. The two had gone to America last year, after Rishi was reportedly diagnosed with cancer. They also had many Bollywood celebrities as visitors, such as Deepika Padukone, Priyanka Chopra and Karan Johar, amongst many others. Anupam Kher, who lives in New York and is a very close friend of Rishi and Neetu also visited them occasionally, or hosted them at his own place. He even bid a special farewell to Rishi when the latter decided to return to India. And now that Rishi and Neetu are back, the latter penned an emotional letter upon their return.
Taking to Instagram, Neetu along with a picture of herself, wrote, “Where did these last 11 months go? It was a long road. It was a phase that taught and changed me a lot.”
Many went on to welcome Neetu back to India. Bollywood actress Neelum Dhillon also commented, “Welcome home. You always were strong and admirable, but now you have endured the tough battle with a smile and come out as a winner. Love and hugs.”
Neetu and Rishi’s children, Riddhima Kapoor and actor, Ranbir Kapoor gave a warm welcome to the couple. Earlier, Neetu had also shared a picture of a balloon that read, “Welcome Home Dad,” and captioned it, “This simple ballon has so much warmth, love and belonging.”
Upon his return, Rishi himself tweeted, “Back home! 11 months and 11 days. Thank you all.”
BACK HOME!!!!!! 11 Months 11days! Thank you all!

During their early days in Bollywood, Neetu and Rishi starred in numerous films together. The two first met on the sets of 1974’s Zehreela Insaan when Rishi was only 14-years-old and got married in 1980. The same year, they had their first child together, daughter Riddhima and son, Ranbir, two years later. Like any marriage, rumours about their marriage started circulating on the media but the couple eventually got out of that phase. Rishi and Neetu marked their return to the silver screen as a couple after 30 years in 2009’s Love Aaj Kal and are currently happily married.
