Rishi Kapoor took to Twitter to announce that he is heading to the US to seek medical treatment and asked his fans not to "unnecessarily speculate". Though he did not specify the nature of his ailment, he wrote that the intervention was due to the "wear and tear" from working in Bollywood for more than four decades.
