Krishna Raj Kapoor wife of legendary actor Raj Kapoor, died today after suffering a cardiac arrest and she was 87 when she gave a final farewell to her life and near dear ones. The whole Kapoor family is now preparing for her last rites.
Bollywood celebs like Kajol and Rani Mukerji visited the Kapoors to offer their condolences. Her eldest son and veteran actor Randhir Kapoor confirmed the news, “My mother passed away at about 5 am today due to cardiac arrest…old age was another factor. We are deeply saddened by her demise.” He also added that the last rites will be performed at Chembur crematorium.
As we say even if people leave for the heavenly abode, they are always alive in our memories. We came across a few pictures of her on Neetu Kapoor’s Instagram account that shows Krishna Raj Kapoor lived life to fullest and enjoyed spending time with the whole family be it going out on a trip to Paris or a normal luncheon.
Krishna Raj Kapoor was often seen with her daughter-in-law, Neetu. The two shared a warm relationship, and Neetu, in earlier interviews has often mentioned that she had a very supportive mother-in-law who didn’t have a problem with her acting career after her marriage.
Take a look at these Instagram posts by Neetu Kapoor and it will surely make you nostalgic:
Talking of Krishna Raj Kapoor, she stood as rock for her husband Raj Kapoor and the whole family. In May 1946, Raj Kapoor married Krishna Malhotra and the couple had five children, three sons, Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv, and two daughters, Ritu and Rima. Memories will be etched in our hearts of the golden couple, Raj Kapoor and Krishna Raj Kapoor.
As soon as the news was confirmed, many heartfelt tributes have stared to come in. Granddaughter Ridhima also posted a tribute and said a her final goodbye.
While Soha Ali Khan remembered her as an “incredible personality full of life and passion and with never a hair out place”, Farah Khan called her “the most beautiful lady of our industry”.
A while back, Krishna Raj Kapoor’s body was brought to her residence in Chembur from Breach Candy Hospital. Family members have reached the bungalow along with a few more Bollywood celebrities.
It’s a sad moment for the Kapoor family.
