There were reports that the 67-year-old actor, who was in the capital to attend a family function, was admitted to a hospital.

In a series of tweets, Kapoor said he had caught an infection due to "pollution" while shooting in the city. He also thanked his well-wishers for their concern.

Kapoor said he decided to issue a clarification as "people seem to have assumed a lot different".

The actor returned to India last September after undergoing treatment for cancer in the US for almost a year.

Last week amid reports of hospitalisation, the actor told Press Trust of India he was being treated for an "infection".

Kapoor recently announced his next project, a remake of Hollywood film The Intern, in which he will feature alongside Deepika Padukone.
