Veteran Indian actor Rishi Kapoor, descendant of the most famous Kapoor family in Indian cinema "Bollywood", died at the age of 67, when he was suffering from leukemia.

Kapoor's death came a day after the death of his colleague, Irfan Khan, after a long struggle with cancer.

"Rishi Kapoor has passed away. He just died, he was horrified," wrote Amitabh Bachchan, a Bollywood legend on Twitter.

Kapoor was taken to a hospital in Mumbai on Wednesday, and later died there, according to a statement issued by his family, according to the Associated Press.

Kapoor returned to India last September after undergoing treatment in the United States for nearly a year, and was taken to hospital twice in February.

His father, Raj Kapoor, and his paternal grandfather Prithviraj Kapoor were Indian filmmakers in the western coastal city of Mumbai.

He won the National Film Award for his first role as a child in the movie "Mira Nam Joker" in 1970. He participated in more than 90 films.

His wife Neto Singh has participated in many of his films, and his son, Ranbir Kapoor, is currently represented in Bollywood.
