The eldest member of the Kapoor family and wife of Raj Kapoor, Krishna Raj Kapoor is no more.
Early this morning, Krishna Raj suffered a cardiac arrest and died in her sleep. She was 87.
“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,” said son Randhir Kapoor.
Randhir told that the last rites will be performed at Chembur crematorium.
To pay tributes to her grandmother, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni posted two photographs with her on Instagram with caption, “I love you – I will always love you – RIP dadi”.
In May 1946, Raj Kapoor married Krishna Malhotra and had five children – three sons, Randhir, Rishi and Rajiv and two daughters, Rima and Ritu.
Bollywood personalities such as Soha Ali Khan, Anupam her and Raveena Tandon among others took to social media to offer condolences.
