After a number of Bollywood actors like Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Anupam Kher, Alia Bhatt and others, Pakistani actress Mawra Hocane also paid a visit to veteran Bollywood superstar Rishi Kapoor In New York. The actor has been in NYC since September and getting treated for cancer. While Rishi Kapoor and his family kept his illness a secret from the fans, they recently opened about it with the media and declared Rishi Kapoor cancer-free. The actor is now gearing to come back to India as soon as he can.
Recently, Rishi Kapoor’s picture with Pakistani actress Mawra Hocane was shared by a fan who asked the veteran actor about the ladies accompanying him in it. Then the actor tweeted the picture and wrote, ,”She is the famous actor from Pakistan, Mawra Hocane (left) and her friend Khatija. Sweet of them to visit us”. For the unversed, mawra Hocane became a popular face in India after her appearance in the Sanam Teri Kasam. In the 2016 film, Mawra played the role of Saraswati "Saru" Parthasaarthy who is an extremely traditional, young librarian, who gets rejected by many suitors who find her "old-fashioned" and "unappealing".
