He was not keeping well and had been admitted to a city hospital in Mumbai on Wednesday, his elder brother Randhir Kapoor had said.
The senior actor was diagnosed with cancer in 2018 and he returned to India from New York in September last year, after his cancer treatment.
The 'Bobby' star comes from the reputed Kapoor family and was last seen in Netflix special 'Body' where his work was hugely appreciated.
