Karisma Kapoor and Abhishek Bachchan
Krishna Raj Kapoor, wife of legendary filmmaker Raj Kapoor, was given a tearful send-off yesterday as the film industry joined her family in paying their last respects. The 87-year-old matriarch of the Kapoor family passed away due to cardiac arrest at 5 am, her eldest son Randhir Kapoor confirmed.
“It’s a big loss for the family. Although she used to be in and out of the hospital owing to age-related issues since the past few years, we never saw this coming. She was a pillar of strength; full of life and enthusiasm,” he told mid-day.
