A couple of weeks back, Rishi opened up about his battle with cancer in an interview with Times Now. He said, “I had a marrow problem. I had to get it rectified. There was nothing serious as such. But you can’t fly long hours so I had to be here (New York). I went through treatment and thankfully, it was successful.”
