Raj Kapoor’s wife Krishna Raj Kapoor breathed her last on Monday after she suffered a cardiac arrest. She was the backbone of the Kapoor family as she managed to keep the clan together for so many years. Her sudden demise took everyone by shock and the entire Bollywood turned up to offer condolences to the bereaved family.
Krishna Raj’s prayer meet will be held in Mumbai on Thursday from 5.30 pm to 7 pm at Sahara Star Banquet Hall. Reportedly, friends and colleagues from Bollywood including the Bachchan family will be joining the Kapoor family.
Unfortunately, Neetu Singh, Rishi Kapoor and Ranbir Kapoor missed the funeral as they are abroad. Rishi Kapoor is in the US for medical reasons while Ranbir and Neetu later joined him. However, Ranbir’s beau Alia made sure he was a part of the funeral. In a video that surfaced online, Alia can be seen trying to connect with Ranbir over a video call, but could not get through. Alia, who lent constant support to the Kapoor family during this difficult phase, was also seen consoling Ranbir’s grieving sister Riddhima in her family’s absence.

As the First Lady of Bollywood Krishna Raj Kapoor ji went to her heavenly abode, it was heart tugging to not see her favourite son Rishi Kapoor ji & grandson Ranbir during her final go. Apparently, Rishi-Neetu ji are in US for his treatment. Whereas Ranbir went to Abu dabi a night prior to his dadi's death! Here, Alia was trying to Face Time Ranbir whom she has saved as "RK", so that he could be a virtual part of the final rites of his beloved granny 😭But alas, the disconnection issues made it impossible! Karan & Abhishek asked her if it worked but she shakes her head disappointed 😞 I'm so proud of you jaan for carrying out your responsibilities with dignity & grace. For going to meet the Kapoor clan, spending time with them until the cremation, standing with them, supporting & solacing them at such a grieving hour ❤ Your just like your Dad, always there for people who need you! Bc as my daddy says "It is better to be there for someone who grieves, at a funeral than being at a wedding", I'm extremely proud to stan you 😭😻 Ofc, inhuman peeps would call it all a PR again but the cheap, rude comments under most media posts regarding Krishna ji's death are intolerable! If you can't respect a deceased soul, your no human. Let the family get their much needed peace at this phase of sorrow. Your harsh words aren't going to touch their vicinity 💫 But what confused and pressed me more is that the religious customs & rituals couldn't wait for Rishi sir & Bira to arrive and be part of the mourning 😫 It was so heartbreaking 💔 to know Bir is all there alone, probably guilty of leaving a night prior, when his colleagues & fam could attend the funeral. I hope no one goes through that guilt 😔😭 How badly I wanted his dadi to attend Bira's wedding & see him settled 😔 I send all my deepfelt condolences & prayers to the entire clan along with my Bir. She's irreplaceable but we can assure ourselves that she might have met her beloved husband up there 🌸 ❤🌠 #krishnarajkapoor #RIP #angelsdontdie #foreverremembered #condolences
