Anurag Basu cheated the Big C in 2004, after he successfully recovered from acute promyelocytic leukemia, a type of blood cancer. The filmmaker recently opened up about Ranbir Kapoor confiding in him about his father, late actor Rishi Kapoor’s cancer diagnosis. “I was among the first few to know. We discussed what line of treatment he should take. I shared the number of my doctor with him and they spoke to him and told me what they had decided,” Anurag Basu had told Mumbai Mirror.
