Neetu Kapoor, wife of late actor Rishi Kapoor, was the first to confirm the news on Instagram.
A picture is also doing the rounds on the internet in which Rishi Kapoor's wife Neetu Kapoor and son Ranbir Kapoor are seen.
Irrfan Khan’s rise as an actor has all the elements of a Bollywood rags-to-riches potboiler whereas the twinkly-eyed charmer called Rishi Kapoor was a de-facto star.
In the video that has been doing the rounds of social media, intensive care unit staff can be seen sneakily recording as the veteran actor struggles.
The film 'Bobby' directed by Raj Kapoor and released in 1973 was a milestone in the veteran actor's film career and determined his course in Indian cinema.
The 67-year-old actor was taken to H N Reliance hospital by his family on Wednesday morning.
The project is jointly produced by Deepika and Sunir Kheterpal under their banners Ka Productions and Azure Entertainment respectively.
Rishi, who plays a pivotal role in the upcoming film The Body, says the film's director Jeethu Joseph wanted to work with him for Drishyam.
Rishi on Saturday took to Twitter and shared that he met a Russian fan, who recognised him and started playing the actor's popular song 'Main shayar toh nahin'.
Rishi shared a photograph of himself holding a chapathi.
