You are almost there!!”

Speaking to Deccan Chronicle in an interview, Rishi had opened up about how his family stood by him. “Neetu has stood by me like a rock. Otherwise I am too difficult a person to handle as far as food and drink are concerned.My kids Ranbir and Ridhima have really shouldered my problems,” he said.

He added, “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.”

Ranbir had spoken about him at the Zee Cine Awards and how he was missing movies. He had said, “Whenever I speak to him, he only talks about movies. He only talks about ‘how is this film?’, ‘how is this film doing?’, ‘how is this performance?’, what are you doing in this scene? And more so, he speaks to me about his insecurities that when he gets back, will he get to work in movies? Whether people will offer him films? Will he be able to act in movies?”
