Late actor Raj Kapoor's wife Krishna Raj Kapoor died on Monday at her home and soon, the Kapoors opened the gates of their home for the colleagues and family members arriving to pay their last respects to Krishna ji.

Born on December 30, 1930, Krishna Malhotra married Raj Kapoor in May 1946. It is a huge loss for the film fraternity and most importantly for the Kapoor family. "We are deeply saddened by her demise", he said.

Krishna Raj Kapoor's grandchildren Kareena, Karisma, Riddhima and Ranbir Kapoor are also now in Mumbai.

This happened a few days after RK studios, which Krishna held very dear, was sold off, after the Kapoor family performed their last Ganesha Chaturthi there.


Krishna Kapoor was known for her elegance and fortitude, as the tributes on Twitter revealed.

Randhir Kapoor and brother Rajiv were taking care of the funeral arrangement. Tragically, Rishi Kapoor, who recently left for the U.S. for a medical treatment, couldn't be part of his mother's final journey.
