Veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor, who has been undergoing medical treatment in New York, has had a host of visitors in the recent past, the latest ones to join this list being Vicky Kaushal and Boman Irani. The 'Sanju' actor, who is in New York ahead of his birthday, paid a visit to Rishi to inquire about his health and ongoing treatment.

Rishi's wife Neetu Kapoor posted pictures on Instagram where the veteran actor can be seen overwhelmed with the kind of love and wishes he is receiving from his Bollywood friends. "Our library of wonderful moments is only getting bigger met our very own Kamli for the first time!! Such a humble well brought up boy with goodness written all over him, the afternoon was a two-hour laugh riot with Boman !!! He is all heart and so positive," Neetu captioned the post. In the first picture, Vicky can be seen posing with the couple and in the second picture, a hail and hearty Rishi is seen posing with his friend Boman Irani.

Vicky, too, shared pictures of his meeting with Rishi on his Instagram story. "Nothing can beat his josh! More power to you sir. Thank you for the wonderful time Rishi sir and Neetu ma'am," he captioned the picture. Rishi was quick to thank Boman for paying a visit by posting a picture on his Twiter handle of him with wife Neetu and Irani. "Thank you for visiting us dear Boman Irani and being a Santa Claus with all those presents. Wish you all the success for your first directorial venture," he tweeted. Earlier this month, Deepika Padukone had dropped by to visit the Kapoors in New York.

"Such a fun evening with adorable Deepika, gave a lot of love and warmth," Neetu wrote on Instagram, to which Deepika replied: "Thank you both for such a fun, memorable evening! To good health, happiness, peace of mind and many, many more laughs." Rishi has been in New York since last year to seek medical treatment for an unknown health condition. He is frequently visited by his children Ranbir and Riddhima. Over the past few months, several celebrities including Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt, Anupam Kher, Priyanka Chopra, Sonali Bendre, and Javed Akhtar, among others went to see the veteran actor. On the work front, Rishi Kapoor last appeared in 'Mulk' and 'Rajma Chawal'.
