Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who was recently admitted at a hospital in Delhi, is now back home in Mumbai.
Kapoor (67) quashed speculations about his health, and thanked his family and friends for their concern.
He revealed that he had caught an infection, because of Delhi's pollution and his low count of neutrophils (white blood cells that protect body from infections).
In a couple of tweets posted on Tuesday, Kapoor said he has been filming in Delhi for two weeks.
He added that his doctors found a patch that could have led to pneumonia, and is now being cured.
"People seem to have assumed a lot different. I put to rest all those stories and look forward to entertain and love you," he summed.
