Krishna Raj Kapoor, the wife of the legendary filmmaker and actor Raj Kapoor, passed away on Monday morning, October 1 in Mumbai. Krishna Raj Kapoor was 88 years old and passed away around 5 am in the morning. The news was confirmed by the eldest son Randhir Kapoor as he said, “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.”
Ranbir Kapoor’s sister, Riddhima Kapoor Sahni, shared a picture of her mom Neetu Singh and grandmother Krishna Raj Kapoor with a farewell message that read, “I love you, I will always love you, RIP Dadi”.
If Raj Kapoor was an institution in film making, Krishnaji was an institution in living life.
A very sad loss to all of us.
My love and warmth to Randhirji, Rishiji, Chimpuji, Reema, Rituji and everyone in the family.
We love you Krishnaji.
